  1. Combine wild rice and water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 40 to 50 minutes.

This is delicious but it is time-consuming to make. Also, the recipe makes more than a 9X13 pan can hold. I had an additional 9X9 pan full. If you've got the time, this is worth it! Tastes even better as a "left over."

This was not a favorite with us. The flavor was pretty good, but the texture was mushy and a little unappealing. I didn't add the carrots because I thought they would be a strange flavor to add to this kind of casserole, but I can't imagine that they would have made a huge difference in the turnout. Probably won't make this again. Thanks anyway, though!

This is soo ymuuy! I made this a low-carb version (or just lower carb, depending on what "stage" you're on) by omitting the rice all together, and also the carrots. I added an additional can of artichokes to soak up the soup, since there was no rice. Tasty! I could have taken out the onions, but they add so much flavor to a recipe!

This was so yummy! All my favorites in one! 1 child liked it, the other...doesn't like anything. What can you do? I halved the recipe and it just fit in my 11" round baking dish (1 1/2" deep). I substituted rice with brown rice (what I had on hand) & it worked great!

I've made this several times, with great success and rave reviews. I've also doubled the recipe and frozen some, this works well. Be sure you have enough wild rice (the packages are deceiving) and don't substitute the "brown and wild rice" mix. Using all wild rice really makes the recipe. It's a lot of work (not hard, just time-consuming), but worth it!

My family gave this recipe a 5 star rating. I doubled easily for my big family and also had to improvise with a coupld of things. I had 1 family sz cream of chicken soup and added a family sz cream of mushroom soup, also added 1 t. sweet paprika and 1 t. thyme. I didn't have mozz cheese so I used an italian blend of cheeses I had on hand. I also used the cooking directions on the package of wild rice, also I only had matchstick carrots which cooked perfectly. Also, instead of 1 cup of butter to cook the onions and mushrooms I used 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 bacon drippings. Everyone asked for the recipe and the kids ate it up too! I will make this again by request I'm sure and I will add more bacon. This would be good over fetticini time :)

This is exactly what I was looking for! I've been searching for a chicken and rice casserole, but others that I have tried have been too bland. I substituted cream of chicken soup with herbs for some extra flavor and sour cream for the heavy cream for a little more depth. Came out delicious! Fit perfectly in my 9 x 13 baking pan - I'm not sure what the other user's issue was with that. I will definitely make this recipe again - yummy comfort food!

Served this at a ladies luncheon yesterday. It went over nicely. Everyone loved it! I counted on it being a little on the bland side, so I prepared it with Cream of Chicken Dijon, added more sherry, and water chestnuts. Very Good! Thanks Eden.
