Homey Chicken and Rice Casserole

"This tasty and comforting dish is a cinch to throw together, and you'd never suspect that the creaminess comes from reduced-fat ingredients. It lends itself to substitution, so if you're not a fan of certain tastes, you can easily switch to another variety of cream soup and/or use other veggies. I recommend using rotisserie chicken for added convenience."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch square baking dish.
  2. Bring rice and 1 1/4 cup chicken broth to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir mushrooms and onion in hot oil until mushrooms are soft and onion is translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir chicken, chicken soup, sour cream, milk, 1/2 cup chicken broth, seasoned salt, and black pepper into the mushroom mixture. Reduce heat to low. Add cooked rice to the saucepan; stir until rice is evenly mixed in. Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish.
  4. Bake in preheated oven 15 minutes. Top casserole with Cheddar cheese and crushed croutons; bake until top begins to brown, about another 10 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.

This was not a bad recipe, but not one I'll probably make again. I thought it was a little bland and needed something extra that I couldn't put my finger on. I also didn't love the sour cream,...

I changed this recipe up a bit. I made homemade cream of celery soup, and by doing this I didn't need to add the milk or the 1/2 of chicken broth because the cream of celery had enough liquid. S...

Thought it was a great casserole! I had to use more liquid in the rice, but it turned out nicely. I also substituted 'Top The Tator' for the sour cream. It added an extra little kick.

The whole family loved this and I will make this my go to chicken and rice dish for now on

So good. I made a few changes based on what i had on hand, first i used one small can of mushrooms and added some minced garlic,(cooked in butter not olive oil.) also i left out the cheese and c...

This is so good. Use slightly less seasoned salt than recommended; otherwise change nothing!

Great recipe! I always like to add something green to a casserole, slip in a veggie, so this time had green peas on the shelf. Delicious. Next time will try with broccali or asparagus. Every...
