this is a hearty casserole that my family cannot get enough of. I have made it twice in one week and I am getting requests to make it again. it does take a little bit of time, but if you prep some of the items ahead of time its not to hard to put together. I would agree, I don't think layering the rice, chicken, green beans and then topping is necessary. Next time I am going to try 1 cup of rice and not layering.
Chicken, Mushroom & Wild Rice Casserole
From EatingWell: September/October 2010
In Minnesota, chicken, mushrooms and wild rice are often bound together in a casserole with cream of mushroom soup. We forgo the sodium-rich canned soup and make a light, creamy sauce that gets depth of flavor from dry sherry and Parmesan cheese. If you already have cooked chicken, use 4 cups and skip Step 2.

The recipe turned out good. If you like casseroles that are usually made with of the condensed soup, you will probably really enjoy this dish. I don't use condensed soup so this was a nice way to prepare this type of a dish without all the extra sodium and processed ingredients. I made it for the parents who really loved it. I followed the recipe as written. It reheated well the next day also. Just as the article said, it is something that works well at a church function.
IT WAS A VERY GOOD MEAL AND VERY TASTEFUL
I used 1 cup of rice per the reviews. We thought that this was very good comfort food. I don't really see the point in layering the ingredients as it doesn't hold its shape when serving. I think next time I would just mix the sauce, chicken, green beans and rice together and then top with the sliced almonds. I would definately make again.
Great recipe - would definitely make it again and now that I see the other comments about the 1 cup of rice I would do that too!
