Beachgirl, this is really a great combination of flavors and textures! I threw in frozen peas when I discovered I was out of celery and added some poultry seasoning. Thanks for a lovely meal.

Good flavorful one dish meal. Great dinner for using leftover chicken.

On the first bite I tasted of this dish, I knew it would be my favorite of its genre, and the only recipe for chicken and rice I would use from now on. The flavors are fresh and the texture from the celery and water chestnuts are wonderful. I didn't have cornflakes, so I used grated sharp cheddar cheese to top the dish 30 mins. after baking. Thank you, Beachgirl. I can see why this recipe is popular with all ages! Lynnie
