"I had a look at some of the other recipes like this on Recipezaar but mine is a little different so here it is. Occasionally we will have a roast turkey as a treat and this is what I make with the leftovers. I haven't made it with chicken yet but I'm sure it is just as tasty as with the turkey. It is also kid friendly, my 17 month old daughter will eat this no problem. (Cooking time includes 10 mins approx for cooking of rice)"

"I used. Italian seasoning, as others did. Instead of thyme. Also used sharp cheddar cheese in the casserole and topping Very enjoyable meal. Thank You."
"Loved this recipe :D I used 1tsp of dried thyme (as some reviews suggested the 1 1/2tsp was too much) and 1tbsp of course grain mustard. I also mixed in a tsp of parmesan into the rice, and added some mushroom, courgette and chopped fine green beans. Love it and will keep it for future use. Thank you. x"
"Red capsicum is red bell pepper - a sweet pepper, not chile. I made it as listed, and seasoned it with seasoning salt, dijon mustard (not bright yellow American mustard) and used cheddar cheese (which is what is referred as tasty cheese). Just add some cracked black pepper and salt to taste and this is delicious. Thanks! It was kid friendly too."
"100% FANTASTIC!!!!!!!! MY MOM AND I ARE CRAZY ABOUT THIS RECIPE!!!! We used turkey. We didn't have thyme, so we used Italian seasoning. This is FANTASTIC!!! We happened to have leftover rice and we used that. Left out the mustard, too, as our family doesn't like it much as a seasoning. Love that it only bakes for 20 minutes! We used the temp conversion on the internet and found out that 180 degrees Celsius is equal to about 350-355 degrees Farenheit. This is definately a make-again-several-times recipe!!! VERY VERY VERY DELICIOUS!!!! UPDATE: 2-1-09 Tried this again and was very dissappointed! It was very bland, but then again we didn't have any peppers so what the heck, it was probably because of that. :S"
"This had a very good flavor, and was quite easy to prepare. Only problem I had was that it had a little too much liquid, next time I will cut back on the chicken stock. Otherwise, will try again. Made for ZWT4."
"Very good, Getting ready to make this again I did mix some Italian bread crumb with butter for a topping, Great idea for left overs, Has a mild flavor but can be seasoned up or down. Thank you so much for this recipe"
"This was excellent! It was delicious and easy. I followed this as directed, except that I started the recipe in a cast iron frying pan, followed the directions and topped it with cheese right in the frying pan. Stuck the whole thing in the oven and only had one pan to wash. I loved that the turkey didn't get dried out cooking it this way. I used a Mexican blend cheese that I had left from a dinner a couple nights ago. This was devoured by my three kids, husband and I and they were asking for seconds...there weren't any. I know that I need to double this for leftovers after Thanksgiving next year! Thanks **Mandy**!"
"The Reviews on this casserole were bang on...it is very tasty and delicious. It is especially versatile because you can chicken or turkey, spice it up more or make it thick or just creamier! I love the fact there is mustard in it, I used a hot German mustard I found in the fridge. Red peppers go very well with poultry so I would recommend leaving these in, and not substituting green peppers. Make it and love it !"
"We loved it! I used green beans instead of pepper and corn just because that's what I had on hand. And I'd like to echo the other comments that it was nice not to have any cream soup in this recipe. We'll definitely be making it again, but next time I'll try not to forget the mustard."
"Everyone loved it. Used more garlic & cheese in rice. Turned out like an easy, yummy risotto!"
"I used this recipe as a base and substituted with ingredients that were in my pantry. I used canned chicken, too much thyme, and a italian cheese blend. If it wouldn't have put too much thyme in I think I would have enjoyed it more, it sure is different and nice not to have to have a cream of something soup. With the right ingredients I will remake this, thank you for a different casserole that was easy to prepare."
"Probably the best version of Chicken and Rice Casserole that I've had. We used some store bought grilled chicken I had in the freezer. Would also be great if you buy rotisserie chickens when they're on sale."
"Delicious! I made this with turkey. I made some very minor changes based on what I had on hand. Will be making this again. I did use 1 1/2 tsp. of dried Thyme and 2 tbsp of Dijon mustard."
"This sounded good, but for me the thyme was way to overpowering. If I make it again, I think I'll substitute the thyme with Italian seasoning."
"Great tasting recipe! I used green pepper instead of red because that is what I had on hand. Also used champagne cheddar for the same reason...... This recipe is a keeper! very tasty!!!!"
"Having to feed a fussy family is very challenging, so with this recipe I wasnt too sure how they would go with the mustard and thyme, so I just used cajun seasoning instead. I even took a gamble and doubled the recipe, ok so miss 14yr old picked out the caps and onion, everyone loved it and had seconds."
"This was okay. I ended up eating the whole thing by myself over the week bringing for lunch. Actually was probably a little better reheated. Overall, good, not great but worked well to use up some turkey!"
"This went over very well, in fact I was asked to make a second back with the rest of the leftover turkey the next night. I did add more than double the cheddar cheese from what was called for, about double the mustard and garlic, and I used a vegetable medley instead of the corn and bell pepper."
"I used a lot of different stuff so I wont use a star rating. I used green bell pepper, and a whole mess of cheese I had lying around...cream cheese, Parmesan, smoked gouda, and some huntsman, which is a combination of cheddar and blue. I also left out the garlic and corn. It was a pretty bland even with the mustard, thyme, and chicken stock. Maybe it would have been more flavorful if I had used just cheddar. I got rid of all of my leftover turkey but I probably wont make this again. Thanks for the idea though!"
