Chicken Wild Rice Casserole ~ Quick and Easy Weeknight Meal! Comfort food at it's best!

How amazing has this weather been? I have to pinch myself when I see the date and realize it’s October and still in the 70’s and 80’s. Unfortunately we all know this will come to an end and we’ll welcome in the true Minnesota fall and the dreaded winter. This recipe will be perfect for those cool, crisp days.

Remember I told you I had to come up with some main dishes now that the hubby was home? This is something new I decided to give a try. I was looking through my Pinterest board and I saw a lot of pasta dishes. I mean oddles and oddles of them and I then realized I might have an obsession with pasta along with Pinterest. Ahhh addictions. At least these are somewhat harmless. The only thing that they will do is suck my time away by scouring my pinterest boards and add a little extra weight to my hips when I pin way to many pasta dishes and try them.

This caught my eye because it had wild rice. I love wild rice. I guess my true Minnesotan roots are coming out in this recipe. I should really rename it to “Chicken & Wild Rice Hotdish” so it truly reflects my Minnesotan roots! It’s a pretty simple dish to throw together and it will please the family from young to old. This would be perfect for a crisp fall day even though we are being blessed with some amazingly warm weather right now! Enjoy!

    OOOOOOOOOOH! YUM!

  • Jenn


    Can I ask how much cream of chicken soup to use? It looks like it says 10 3/4 oz?

    • Julie Evink


      Yup!

    • Cassie Taylor


      Jenn, it is just one can of Cream of Chicken soup. The can itself is 10 3/4 oz’s.

  • Leeann


    Hi, this looks good! But can you tell me what kind of wild rice that is that comes with seasonings? Is it pre-cooked? Thanks!

    • Julie Evink


      Uncle Ben’s and it’s precooked!

  • cassie hestwood


    My family loved this

    • Julie Evink


      So glad you enjoyed it Cassie!

  • Catherine


    I bought Uncle Ben’s Fast and Fancy – do you think that will work? Did you use the ones you can microwave?

  • brenda


    Wondering if you could substitute instant wild rice pprepared and greek yogurt as a healthier option?

    • Julie Evink


      Brenda, I think the Greek Yogurt can be subbed just fine for the sour cream. The instant wild rice should be ok too just watch the cooking time.

  • Katie


    Do you think this would be okay to prepare and combine together ahead of time and then cook later? Thanks for the recipe!

    • Julie Evink


      Yes! I make it a day ahead of time and just pop it in the oven after work!

      • Katie


        Awesome! That’s what I thought but wanted to get your opinion! Thanks for the quick response too 🙂

  • Katie


    This was super good! My husband loved it! Thanks so much for the great recipe! 🙂

  • Kim Kurhajec


    Do you bake the chicken and wild rice casserole covered or uncovered?
    Thank you

  • Katie


    I have another question.. Do you think this could be frozen? If so, would you thaw and cook the same? Wasn’t sure with sour cream in it. Thanks!

  • Heidi


    Making this tonight but substituting ground beef for chicken and cream of mushroom soup for cream of chicken.

  • cherie


    Love cooking love quilting love recipes love patterns
    I would be in heaven if all I had to do is cook quilt and eat of coarse
    It’s been a pleasure looking at your wonderful food recipes
    Thanks for sharing

  • Kimberly


    My hubby and 13 year old daughter loved it. I had to substitute cream of mushroom instead of cream of chicken (Aldi was out) soup, but still a hit. Thanks for sharing.

    • Julie Evink


      So glad you enjoyed it Kimberly!

  • Gloria


    This was absolutely delicious! Instead of using shredded chicken, I used 1 lbs of ground turkey and it was amazing.

    Thanks for such an easy recipe that literally took me no less than 15 minutes less to prepare 🙂
