  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray 2-quart baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Prepare rice according to package directions.
  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.

We loved this! I followed the recipe as directed, except I used portabella mushrooms (they were on sale). I also mixed the melted butter with the crackers in a zip lock bag for easy distributio...

Followed recipe other than the much needed addition of broccoli. Myself and family just weren't big fans of the Alfredo mixed with wild rice. Not going to be making this one again.

We all enjoyed this and I will make it again. We do several potluck dinners throughout the year and this would be great! I added a bit of shredded cheese to the top before and used Ritz craCkers...

A really great comfort food dinner! I simplified by using rotisserie chicken breast and pre-sliced mushrooms. I took other reviewer's advice and added broccoli and onions and used Ritz instead...

I am overruling my husband on the rating of this. He gave it a 4, but he doesn't ever want me to make rice. I, on the other hand, loved this! I followed the recipe pretty exactly. I would n...

Delicious. My kids devoured it! Added one box of publix frozen broccoli with 3/4 onion. Doubled recipe with 2 boxes of long grain rice and wild rice mix. Added extra 1/2 cup of long grained...
