“This tasty and comforting dish is a cinch to throw together, and you'd never suspect that the creaminess comes from reduced-fat ingredients. It lends itself to substitution, so if you're not a fan of certain tastes, you can easily switch to another variety of cream soup and/or use other veggies. I recommend using rotisserie chicken for added convenience.”

Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch square baking dish.
  2. Bring rice and 1 1/4 cup chicken broth to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir mushrooms and onion in hot oil until mushrooms are soft and onion is translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir chicken, chicken soup, sour cream, milk, 1/2 cup chicken broth, seasoned salt, and black pepper into the mushroom mixture. Reduce heat to low. Add cooked rice to the saucepan; stir until rice is evenly mixed in. Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish.
  4. Bake in preheated oven 15 minutes. Top casserole with Cheddar cheese and crushed croutons; bake until top begins to brown, about another 10 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.

I hate when people change the recipe but I'm going to be one of those people because I used what I had in my pantry and fridge. I used full fat everything, subbed swiss cheese and used fried onions ( the kind in the can) to top. Used the basic recipe to make. Very good! Had leftover chicken to use up and this was a great jumping off recipe. Thanks so much, hubby says thanks too!

I made this and the kids loved it. My son already declared that he wanted it for his birthday dinner. That's how good it was. I modified it a bit by using farro instead of rice and cream of mushroom soup. I have never had my kids go so crazy over anything I've made before.
