Chicken Casserole with rice and veggies - easy to prepare. Great to use with leftover chicken. My family says it has a flavor similar to chicken pot pie.

Finally a chicken casserole that the kids actually like! I made a whole bunch of changes. First we had no leftover chicken so i just poached some cut up chicken breasts and threw them in. Secondly I added some onion-mushroom soup mix and butter to the rice as it was cooking. Also I subbed milk for the 2/3 cup of water.(We're trying to fatten up the little ones.) Also I used canned string beans for the veggies.(Again because of the little ones) Fabulous! Read More

I can't believe this recipe has a 4.5 star rating--it was so bland. Luckily I had all the ingredients on hand so I dont' feel like I wasted too much time or money! Read More

Good recipe but made a few changes first I cooked up the chicken breasts and seasoned with garlic and pepper and salt. I also used a wild and white rice mixture. I put it all together with cheese instead of crackers and the kids and hubby ate it up. Read More

This recipe was really enjoyed by my family. Instead of the frozen mixed veges tho I lightly cooked fresh cut veges in the water and tossed them into the mixture. I used leftover cooked chicken pieces. Wonderful recipe. Read More

3 stars as-is but here's how I tweaked it to 5: added some thyme fresh ground black pepper and a few splashes of worcestershire. Substituted cream of celery (reduced fat) for cream of chicken. Also used a mixture of white and wild rice for texture. For vegetables I used 1 small diced onion frozen green beans and a mix of frozen diced red & green peppers. (I threw them in to cook a bit with the chicken when it was almost done sauteeing.) Used cubed sauteed chicken breast dusted with poultry seasoning while cooking. I found this recipe to be a little heavy on the meat for my taste so I cut back on that. (Actually I cut the whole recipe in half for only 2 people and used 1 large chicken breast for the meat.) Topped with buttered dry cornbread stuffing mix. This recipe is a great starting point for building a meal more specific to your family's tastes. Read More

Recipe didn't mention anything about cooking the chicken. I cooked mine and then added to casserole. Makes a huge amount. Good and simple but needs more flavor - definitely salt and pepper at least. Read More

Great recipe! I changed some things because of what I had on hand (cream of mushroom soup broccoli instead of mixed veggies) and added a little salt as well as extra cracker crumbs. My family loved it and thought with the broccoli it tasted like Cracker Barrel's Chicken Cheese and Broccoli dish! Read More
