  • 1 (6 ounce) package long grain and wild rice mix

  • 6 large mushrooms, sliced

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 12 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces

  3. Melt butter in a skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and saute until they release some moisture and begin to brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove mushrooms from pan.

  4. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat in the same skillet. Saute chicken pieces until browned. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste.

  5. Combine the rice, chicken, mushrooms, and 3/4 of the jar of Alfredo sauce in the prepared baking dish. Mix well, and then spread remaining sauce over the top. Sprinkle crushed crackers evenly over casserole and drizzle 1 tablespoon melted butter over top.

  6. Bake until heated through and topping is golden, about 30 minutes. Garnish with parsley.
