OK, earlier today I was going to post a recipe, but the Spirit led me to ask you to pray for Christy
The recipe I am sharing today is a fav around our house and with our friends & family!
I would love to hear back from any of you who try it out! It's very good... and if you eat it w/ friends there are no calories! Ha Ha... at least that's what I always say!
Chicken & Wild Rice Casserole
1 (6.2-ounce) package fast-cooking long-grain and wild rice mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
3 cups chopped cooked chicken
1 1/2 cups half-and-half
1 (6-ounce) can sliced water chestnuts, drained
1 (4.5-ounce) jar sliced mushrooms, drained (I use fresh asparagus instead)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 (2.5-ounce) package sliced almonds
Cook rice mix according to package directions; set aside.
Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion, and saute until tender. Add flour, and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Add broth, and cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture is thickened and bubbly.
Stir in rice, chicken, and next 6 ingredients. Spoon into a lightly greased 9 x 13inch baking dish. Top with almonds.
Bake at 350° for 15 to 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
Makes 6 servings
