This recipe was great! I cooked brown and wild rice together in chicken broth instead of using boxed stuff. I also cut up 2 big pork chops instead of the chicken. In a large saucepan I sauteed the onion in some butter and then added 2 cloves of crushed garlic and the pork, along with some herbs and spices. I added 1/2 cup of white wine and simmered the pork until it was done. Then I added two cans of cream of mushroom soup and simmered the mixture until the rice was done. As soon as the rice was done, I added it to the pot. I didn't bother with any cheese or bother putting it in a 9 x 13 pan and heating it up. It was already plenty hot so I just served it right out of the large saucepan. It was so good and easy. Next time I will try it with chicken and some fresh mushrooms. Thanks for the recipe!

It was all really good except for the raw onions. Next time I will either saute them or eliminate them all together. Other than that it was great.

This was delicious! I couldn't stop eating it! As suggested by another reviewer, I sauteed the onion before adding to the rice mixture to give it a more subtle flavor. I used Cream of Chicken soup instead of Cream of Mushroom because of personal preference and I added some chopped broccoli. This was so easy to make, but it's nice enough for company, too. Thanks for a great recipe!

My husband asked if I could make this once a week! I added chopped broccoli and didn't use onion (I HATE onions). I also topped with bread crumbs and a little more cheese then called for. It was wonderful!

This chicken & rice casserole is delicious. It would be even better with some bacon bits and sour cream. I will definitely make it again because it disappeared when it was put on the table!

tasty and easy! it's a very open recipe you could add more to it if you wanted, we added green beans and we think that green chiles and fresh mushrooms would've made it super! I would also suggest more cream of mushroom soup, just enought o make it a little more creamy and not too runny. I also used more cheese which held it together alot better.
