DIRECTIONS

  • Preparation:
  • Preheat oven to 400°. In a heavy saucepan melt 3 1/2 tablespoons of butter over moderately low heat. Add flour and cook, whisking for 3 minutes. Add broth, bring mixture to a boil, and simmer it, whisking occasionally for 15 minutes.
  • While sauce is simmering, in a skillet cook shallots and mushrooms in the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is evaporated.
  • Add mushroom mixture to sauce and stir in cream, nutmeg, lemon juice, chicken, cranberries or cherries, rice, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Transfer mixture to a 13 x 9-inch baking dish and bake casserole covered, in the middle of preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  • Uncover, bake casserole for 15- 25 additional minutes, or until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Garnish casserole with additional cherries or cranberries.
