Recipe: Cheesy Chicken Rice Casserole

I've been finding some really delicious recipes out there in the blogosphere. This Cheesy Chicken Rice Casserole was easy and quick, something my whole family could eat. Best part, its gluten free. Most the ingredients are add as desired, meaning you add as much of them as you want into the recipe. There really isn't a set amount. I used a little celery and a lot of broccoli, just because that is my preference. 

I hope you enjoy!


Rice - I used white rice
1 tbsp. Butter
Yellow Onion
Cremini Mushrooms
Flour - I used gluten free
Dry White Wine
Chicken Broth
Sour Cream
Shredded Chicken - I used Rotisserie
Shredded Cheddar Cheese


1. Cook the rice according to the package and set aside.

2. Prepare veggies - Garlic, Onion, Mushrooms and Celery.

3. Prepare Chicken (If you have a rotisserie chicken.)

4. Melt butter in a large over proof skillet over medium heat. Add Garlic, Onion, Mushrooms and Celery until they are soft. Add the thyme.

5. Whisk in enough flour to make a past. Then whisk in dry white wine and Chicken broth and let it cook until it thickens. It should look like a roux at this point. 

6. Stir in broccoli, sour cream, chicken,1/2 cup of cheese and the cooked rice. Top with remaining cheese.

7. Transfer skillet to the oven at 350 degrees and cook until warm, about 20 minutes. 

8. Top with parsley if desired and serve. 

We enjoyed this recipe and it was easy to make. Its perfect for large crowds or just a few people. I'm curious to see if the broccoli can be switched out for another kind of vegetable, or if the sour cream could be replaced for cream of mushroom soup. Of course, that usually has gluten in it, so I would have to make my own. If anyone has a good gluten free cream of mushroom soup recipe, would you please share it in the comments below. I am dying for a good soup.
