  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray 2-quart baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Prepare rice according to package directions.
  3. Melt butter in a skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and saute until they release some moisture and begin to brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove mushrooms from pan.
  4. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat in the same skillet. Saute chicken pieces until browned. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste.
  5. Combine the rice, chicken, mushrooms, and 3/4 of the jar of Alfredo sauce in the prepared baking dish. Mix well, and then spread remaining sauce over the top. Sprinkle crushed crackers evenly over casserole and drizzle 1 tablespoon melted butter over top.
  6. Bake until heated through and topping is golden, about 30 minutes. Garnish with parsley.

We loved this! I followed the recipe as directed, except I used portabella mushrooms (they were on sale). I also mixed the melted butter with the crackers in a zip lock bag for easy distribution. My husband went back for thirds and fourths. I will definitely be making this recipe on a regular basis! #AllstarsClassico

We loved the taste of the creamy alfredo sauce blended into this rice casserole mixture - such a nice change of pace from a typical "soup can" recipe. I love the suggestion to add broccoli and will definitely have to give that a try soon! :)

Super yummy! Doubled the recipe as I wanted leftovers. My hubby and daughter were very happy. My daughter doesn't care for mushrooms so I made a mini one for her without them. I took advice from another reviewer and mixed the cracker crumbs and melted butter together. Great tip! Ritz crackers would be good too.

We all enjoyed this and I will make it again. We do several potluck dinners throughout the year and this would be great! I added a bit of shredded cheese to the top before and used Ritz craCkers instead of saltines.

Next time I am going to make this with all wild rice, broccoli rather than parsley most likely I will leave the crackers off. It is a good recipe and a great one for personalizing.

I thought this was very good! The only thing that I did differently was to use crushed Ritz crackers rather than saltines. It was great, and I'm sure I'll make it time, I think I will try adding broccoli!

I am overruling my husband on the rating of this. He gave it a 4, but he doesn't ever want me to make rice. I, on the other hand, loved this! I followed the recipe pretty exactly. I would not add any salt to this because the wild rice mix and the Classico sauce both have enough for those who tend to be salt-sensitive. You can always add more later! In other recipes I've made using cracker crusts like this I've always mixed the butter and crackers together, and I did that, too, but it does take a little more butter. This would be pretty good sized servings for 4. Thank you so much, Sandra! This was really nice!

I made this according to the recipe with the addition of broccoli which I can't imagine changed it too much! It's definitely tasty- I love the idea of Alfredo rather than cream of mushroom soup. It's not knock your socks off, but it's go-back-for-seconds comfort food. And so easy!
