  • Bring 2 1/4 cups water, rice mix plus seasoning pack, and 1 tablespoon butter to a boil in a covered saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until rice is tender and water is absorbed, about 25 minutes.

  • Stir turkey, cream of chicken soup, celery, 1 cup water, water chestnuts, onion, and soy sauce into wild rice until well mixed. Transfer turkey mixture to a 3-quart baking dish. Pour 2 tablespoons melted butter over crumbs in a bowl, stirring to coat crumbs with butter. Sprinkle buttered bread crumbs over turkey mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly and golden brown, about 30 minutes.

This was a good base recipe. I used leeks instead of onion, added broccoli, sliced mushrooms, and 3 cloves chopped garlic, and sautéed the fresh veggies just a little to meld their favors before combining with the rest of the ingredients. I also had to use crushed crackers for the top since that was what I had around. The soy sauce really enhances the flavor, I would suggest to those who thought it bland to add a dash more of that and see if it pops. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I personally liked the recipe. My husband ate it but he wasn't thrilled with it. I guess he thought it was bland so he put Tobasco on it. I made it exactly but didn't have an onion. I'm also confused by the butter to breadcrumps ratio because I used 4 T of butter and it didn't come close to blending with all the bread crumbs therefore leaving a dry layer on top of casserole after baking which I just basically scooped off. Maybe I was supposed to use real bread instead of the canned bread crumbs?? Read More

Added poultry seasoning and garlic powder to help perk up the flavor. After baking for 30 minutes the celery was still uncooked. It has the potential to make for a good meal. Read More

This dish was very flavourful, and earned the Hubby Seal of Approval. ^_^ Like other cooks who have submitted reviews, I substituted cream of mushroom soup for the cream of chicken, just because I prefer the taste. Because this dish is rather carb-heavy , between the rice and the bread crumbs, I will add a cup or two of green peas next time, just to get some veggies in. It's so much easier than preparing a vegetable separately, and having an extra pan to wash. Read More

My family LOVED this recipe. I thought it was a little salty so I might try using unsalted butter next time or just leaving out the butter when I make the rice. I definitely won't cut the soy sauce because it adds a great flavor. I was looking for something a little different to use up leftover turkey and this was perfect. Delicious! Read More
