Chicken, Rice and Green Bean Casserole Recipe

It’s cold outside, so all I seem to want is a warm blanket, a good book, and some comfort food. If you find yourself wanting some good old fashioned comfort food this Chicken, Rice and Green Bean Casserole is sure to entice you. It somewhat resembles the green bean casserole that everyone loves to eat at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. But the addition of chicken and rice makes this casserole a complete meal. My family sure loves it!

10 3/4 ounces cream of mushroom soup
2 cups milk
1 cup white rice, uncooked (do not use instant rice)
2 cups chicken, cooked and cut into bite sized pieces

Chicken, Rice, and Green Bean Casserole Recipe


Preheat oven to 350ºF, and prepare a large casserole dish or 9 x 13 inch pan by coating with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large sauce pan, combine milk, cream soup, and rice. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and add chicken, green beans, mushrooms, and pimentos.
Stir to combine.

Remove from heat and pour into the prepared casserole dish. Spread shredded cheese on top of the mixture. Sprinkle the onion rings on top of the cheese. Bake casserole uncovered for about 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven and cover the casserole loosely with foil to prevent over-browning. Bake an additional 20 minutes.

Serve and enjoy!
