Wild Rice & Chicken Casserole

"This goes well with a salad and some crusty rolls. A nice light dinner. Make sure you stir half-way through cooking as stated or may come out runny (found this out after making it a few times)."

  1. This dish tasted good, but the smell, oh the smell! It turned DBF off, and he wouldn't try the dish. I'm more of a trooper though and didn't let the smell hinder my tasting. The dish tasted alright, but the smell lingered in my house for two days. I used less than 1/4 of an onion too. I'm not sure if i'll make this again because of the smell factor, but it really is an okay tasting dish.
  2. Didn't like this as much as I thought I would. The rice seasoning was too overpowering. Maybe it would have been different with another brand.
  3. I made this recipe on the stove instead of the oven. I cooked the rice as directed on the box, adding the cooked chicken about half way through. After it was done I added the soup & milk. Cooking it this way saved me about 20 minutes cook time. Simple, easy, tasty...
  4. We liked this casserole, even my casserole-averse husband. As others have said it needs spicing up and has to cook longer than the directions say. I increased the oven temperature to 375 and it did reduce the time somewhat. After 50 minutes I uncovered the dish and let it back another 20 minutes. At that point it was close enough to done that I put the cover back on and turned off the oven while I microwaved some broccoli. It was nicely cooked. I added a heaping tablespoon of Bell's poultry seasoning to the dish but it still needed more spice. I'm going to add paprika to the leftovers to see how they taste. Next time I think I'll skip the Uncle Ben's and use regular wild rice with my own spices. If I get it worked out, I'll be back with an update.
  5. We liked this one but didn't love it. It was rather light for evening meal even with bread. My family said they still felt a bit hungry afterwards. It also didn't have alot of flavor so I added poultry seasoning, paprika, salt and course ground pepper and cooked for another 20 minutes because it was still had too much liquid. I think this would be a good dish to use with leftovers or during Thanksgiving when you have too much turkey leftover.


<p>I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and was born in Esterhazy Saskatchewan. I am in the Food &amp; Beverage industry and have been for over 22 years. I love to cook, but I would not call myself a "Chef". While I'm not good at creating recipes, I can take a recipe and tweak it or improve on it. I would have to say that I'm a self taught cook as my Mother never had time to really teach me. I would just watch her and figured it out on my own. I have collected 1000's of recipes (lots from here on Zaar) from cookbooks, clippings, pamphlets, you name it. <br />I like to read (favorite author is Jackie Collins), watch movies, trying to figure out how computers work and like to surf the net. Although I can stay in the background for months and not say anything, I'm always here on Zaar. It's a great site to be involved with. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /><img src="http://img256.imageshack.us/img256/8352/saladtl5.gif" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" /> <br /> <br /> <br /><img src="http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/7688/salad8dw5ck0.jpg" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" /> <br /> <br /><img src="http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/3374/rolls2is3ue8.jpg" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" /> <br /> <br /><img src="http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/2480/fork2tp6cl6.jpg" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" /> <br /> <br /><img src="http://img253.imageshack.us/img253/1376/lobster6cz0.jpg" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" /> <br /> <br /><img src="http://img403.imageshack.us/img403/8659/crabburger1yu0.jpg" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" /> <br /> <br /><img src="http://img403.imageshack.us/img403/308/crab1lh8.jpg" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" /> <br /> <br /><img src="http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/604/app398896002838932ml0k.gif" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" /> <br /> <br /><img src="http://img160.imageshack.us/img160/8537/172478p.jpg" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" /> <br /> <br /><img src="http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/8280/149980p.jpg" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" /> <br /> <br /><img src="http://img509.imageshack.us/img509/1571/dessert18li2bz8da5ds4.jpg" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" /> <br /> <br /><img src="http://img98.imageshack.us/img98/26/chocolates2qi2.jpg" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" /> <br /> <br /><img src="http://img217.imageshack.us/img217/2734/foodsoy7.gif" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" /> <br /> <br /><img src="http://img217.imageshack.us/img217/9931/sweets1il3.jpg" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" /> <br /> <br /><img src="http://img54.imageshack.us/img54/8642/drinks1.jpg" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" /> <br /> <br /><img src="http://img398.imageshack.us/img398/7087/drinks2ji0zk3.jpg" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" /> <br /> <br /><img src="http://img76.imageshack.us/img76/9346/1858887vvr6dlsowm.jpg" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" /> <br /> <br /><img src="http://img141.imageshack.us/img141/3972/8ebmqtttm2.gif" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /><a href="http://easyhitcounters.com/stats.php?site=carmen782" target="_top"><img src="http://beta.easyhitcounters.com/counter/index.php?u=carmen782&amp;s=apple" border="0" alt="Free Web Site Counter" hspace="4" vspace="2" align="middle" /></a></p>
