Food For Friday...

Casseroles... don't you just love them? I sure do! I especially like the ones that are a little bit different. This recipe is definitely one of my all-time favorites. The first time I made this was shortly after Steve and I got married. It quickly became a keeper. What I like about it this casserole is that it isn't your typical "chicken casserole". Hope you enjoy it too!


6 oz. wild rice
1 c. chicken broth
10 oz. french-style green beans
2 c. cubed, cooked chicken
1 can cream of celery soup
1/2 c. mayo
1 can water chestnuts, drained
1 can french fried onions

Prepare rice, substituting broth for 1 c. water. Combine all ingredients. Place in casserole dish. Top with onions. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

How easy is that!!!

When I have this casserole I usually will have a spinach salad with Craisins, feta cheese, almonds, and red onion. Drizzle it with some raspberry balsamic dressing, or Ken's Steakhouse Vidalia Onion dressing and you have a delicious salad. Add some rolls and dinner is ready!


  1. Another recipe that sounds so good!!!

    Hope you are having a great day!?!?

  2. Yummy!! I always love your recipes Christy! And I love casseroles too, they are so easy and satisfying in the cold months. I can't wait to try this one! Have a great weekend too!

  3. Mmm ... Christy, that sounds good! I'm definitely going to add that to my menu plan for next week.

    BTW, I made one of your recipes last week, too ... what was it?! Oh, sorry ... I can't remember right now. But, I know it was delicious!! :-)

    Friday blessings ...
