Simple Suppers - Chicken and Rice Casserole
I love chicken, and I love casseroles, so this casserole is one of my favorites to make on a cold winter night. I love the fact that you can use left-over rice for this dish, and you just pop everything into a bowl, stir it up, and put it into the casserole dish to bake.
So easy, but so delicious!!
2 cups cooked cubed chicken
2 cups cooked rice
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
6-8 large mushrooms, chopped into pieces
2 celery ribs, thinly sliced
1 cup cooked and sliced carrots
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 table spoons chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup crushed saltines (about 10)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
In a large bowl, combine first 9 ingredients. Transfer to a greased 2-1/2 -qt. baking dish. Combine the cracker crumbs and butter, sprinkle over top of mixture. Bake uncover at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
Makes 4-6 servings.
