An old fashioned tasting, soothing casserole. I found this recipe in a 1989 Pillsbury Cookbook and tweaked it to my tastes. Use the seasoning that you like.

Nice! I doubled the recipe and used Basmati rice and 4 large leg quarters that I cut apart. I used only one can of the soup and used all chicken broth for the liquid rather than half broth half water. I used the butter to sauteed the celery and onions and the mushrooms first because I don't like adding them raw to a casserole and I didn't bother brushing the chicken with it. I seasoned the top of the chicken with seasoned salt. Very tasty!
