December 13th, 2011 by Jim Field

  • 3 cups cooked chicken, cubed (rotisserie chicken is good)
  • 1 cup celery
  • 1 package traditional Rice-A-Roni
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise, maybe a little more (not Miracle Whip)
  • 1 can drained water chestnuts
  • 1 can drained mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • salt to taste

Cook Rice-A-Roni according to directions.  Don’t over cook.  Mix all ingredients.  Top with 1 cup of crushed corn flakes (Ritz crackers are also good) mixed with 1/2 cup melted margarine.  Bake in 9″ x 13″ pan for 30-45 minutes.  One casserole serves 8.
