There’s some pimentos added for color and water chestnuts for a little crunch. A combination of mayonnaise and condensed cream of celery soup forms a creamy base for this recipe.

Once you have the rice cooked, you just mix everything together in a large bowl, transfer it to a baking dish and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. It’s a super easy dinner. Serve with a salad and you have a very filling meal.

Chicken Wild Rice Casserole with Green Beans Recipe Tips:

  • I like to use rotisserie chicken for this recipe but any cooked chicken will do.
  • Either very finely chop the onion or saute it first so that it gets soft.

This recipe is simple and basic and is easily customizable.

  • Try adding a few toasted pecans or almonds on top.
  • If you want some cheesy flavor, add 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese on top of the casserole.
  • Substitute canned asparagus for the green beans.
  • Cream of Chicken or Cream of Mushroom Soup can be used instead of Cream Of Celery.
  • For more flavor, try adding 1 teaspoon of curry powder or 1/2 teaspoon of paprika.
  • Fried onions make a great topping.
  • If your box of rice has a seasoning packet, use it.
