Delightful Chicken, Mushroom, and Wild Rice Casserole

READY IN: 2hrs 25mins
Recipe by Helping Hands

This casserole is heavenly! It has the most wonderful flavor! This one is best if you cook the chicken, rather than buy pre-cooked chicken or use leftovers, because you cook the rice in the broth, which is the secret to the delicious flavor. I got this recipe off of another site and everyone that I have served it to just loves it!

This is fabulous! Some slight modifications: I only used 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts and boiled for 25 min., and 1 package of rice. I put it all in an 8 x 8 baking dish. (There's only 2 of us, so didn't need larger quantity.) I also threw in about 1 cup of grated parmesan cheese in the mixture. The result was fantastic! Very creamy, hearty, cheesy and just delicious. Thanks for a great recipe!
