This is a compilation of hot chicken salad and chicken rice casserole recipes I've collected over the years and a concoction that my fiance requests frequently! A great use for leftover chicken! Feel free to ad-lib ingredients to taste, as it is very versatile. Serve hot with a green salad and biscuits or bread.

  • Bring water to a boil in a pot. Stir rice into boiling water, cover pot with a lid, and remove pot from heat. Let rice steam until water is absorbed completely, about 5 minutes.

  • Combine rice, chicken, mushrooms, green beans, cream of chicken soup, celery, sour cream, mayonnaise, onion, garlic, seasoning blend, salt, black pepper, monosodium glutamate, and red pepper flakes in a large bowl; stir until evenly mixed. Spread the mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish; top with mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle potato chips over the cheese.

  • Bake in preheated oven until the cheese is melted and the potato chips are golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes.

I enjoyed this recipe but would like to add a few touches the next time I make it. I will probably saute the onions ahead of time so they are less crunchy and I get more flavor out of them. Also despite the sour cream and mayo and only a 25 minute cook time my casserole still ended up a little dry. I will probably add a cup of chicken broth to the mix before topping it with cheese to give it just the right moisture level and taste. Finally an entire teaspoon of salt was far too much. I cut that down to less than half a teaspoon without sacrificing flavor. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly. I find that it's not fair to the recipe if you have changed half the ingredients. I gave this one star only because the crust was delicious. The rest was very blah. The casserole basically had no taste the concept was good I agree with the previous poster. If you sautéed the onions garlic mushrooms celery and red pepper flakes they would be softer and meld the tastes together better. I think the use of fresh mushrooms and fresh green beans would have helped a lot. I would also suggest a long grain rice instead of instant. It kind of tasted like the rice box very bland. Also because the potato chips have salt I would have reduced the salt by at least half. It also did not require monosodium glutamate. Sorry it just was not to our taste. Read More
