Chicken Wild Rice Casserole - just like the classic soup but in casserole form, topped with golden buttery bread cubes.

Total Time: 125 Minutes, Servings: 8 Servings

Ingredients :
  • 1 onion
  • 5 carrots
  • 5 stalks celery
  • 1 cup wild rice
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 lb. chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
  • 10 tablespoons butter (divided)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3–4 cups cubed bread (dry, sturdy, or day old bread works best)



Instructions :
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Chop the onion, carrots, and celery. Place in a large baking dish. Add the wild rice and the broth. Cover tightly with foil. Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes.
  • When the rice is almost done, melt four tablespoons butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour, salt, and poultry seasoning and cook for one minute. Add the milk slowly, whisking to form a thick, creamy sauce.
  • If you want the topping, melt the remaining six tablespoons butter and toss with the bread cubes. (I’ve also made it without the topping and it’s still delicious).
  • When the rice is done, remove foil, add raw chicken and creamy sauce, and stir to combine. Arrange the bread in a layer on top. Turn the heat up to 450 and bake uncovered for another 20-30 minutes until chicken is no longer pink and the bread cubes are golden brown. Top with salt, pepper, and/or parsley for a pop of green color.
