Chicken, Mushroom & Wild Rice Casserole

September/October 2010

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (274 votes)

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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"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...

This recipe sounded fabulous

This recipe sounded fabulous but when I followed the instructions exactly, it was incredibly disappointing. If I ever feel like doing it again, I would cook the rice in vegetable bullion and cut the chicken up first and sauté it in olive oil with some scallions.

I wish I read your comment

I wish I read your comment before I tried this recipe. Extremely boring and disappointing. All the ingredients sounded fabulous but when you make it, it's bland.

Fabulous Casserole

We loved this recipe!!! But, it needs a little tweaking.....First, check the directions on the wild rice package as this calls for too much water. I sauteed the chicken instead of boiling and used french cut green beans. I also added about 1/4 cup fresh sage. Finally, don't overdo the almonds. I used about half what the recipe specified. Despite my critique I would give this the highest rating because the flavor of the sherry with the leeks and mushrooms is just spectacular!

I also amended the recipe a bit. I used an onion and 2 cloves of garlic instead of the leeks. I also did not cook off all the mushroom liquid or sherry. Instead of mixing the flour to the mushrooms, I blended it into the milk and added this to the mushroom mixture, cooking until thickened. I found this created a moist but not runny casserole. Finally, I mixed everything together instead of layering it. It was very tasty. I used a gluten free flour mix and it worked perfect, too.

Awesome Casserole

I also amended the recipe a bit. I cheated with a rotisserie chicken. I used an onion and 2 cloves of garlic instead of the leeks. I also did not cook off all the mushroom liquid or sherry. Instead of mixing the flour to the mushrooms, I blended it into the milk and added this to the mushroom mixture, cooking until thickened. I found this created a moist but not runny casserole.
