Wonderful dish, I will definitely make this again. This was the first casserole I have ever made, it was very easy to follow the instructions and end up with a delicious meal.

I added a whole med. zucchini, broccoli and extra chicken. It was great!

Thought this had a really nice flavor! Oven wasn't working, so I just fried my veggies and threw all the rest in a pot on top of the stove, until rice was done. Had to watch it a bit more but turned out great. Didn't have chestnuts so added a can of bamboo shoots and some red pepper for color!
