Chicken Terrific {This is not your typical casserole...the ingredients might surprise you!}

Chicken Terrific, wild rice, water chestnuts, French style green bean, and a buttery herb stuffing on top that sends it over the top.


This yummy casserole recipe came to me from my daughter, Jennifer.  Chicken Terrific is a favorite casserole on her dinner table and has become a favorite of mine too.

This dish makes a lot, and with four growing boys, that is just what she is wanting, a dish that lasts a couple of days.

This is not your typical casserole.

The ingredients might surprise you with wild rice, water chestnuts, French style green bean, and a buttery herb stuffing on top that sends it over the top.

In fact, it is better the next day when all the ingredients come together to make a yummy leftover meal.

Chicken Terrific

What is so great about preparing this delightful casserole, is that all of it can be made a day in advance.  Just add the topping just before putting it in the oven.

The aroma is incredible, and enticing enough to dig in as soon as it finishes baking.  I served it with a delicious salad and hot bread.  It makes a terrific potluck dish for any gathering.

Plan to take it to your next potluck supper and you will have all kinds of raves over it!

  27. Oh, thank you so much for posting this! When my husband used to work at a local convenience store, they would have potluck Christmas parties, and one of his former coworkers brought this one time. It took forever for me to get the recipe from her, and then, when I had it, I lost it in a move. I've been mourning the loss of it ever since. She called it her mother's green bean casserole, but I love how it can be made as a one dish meal. The recipe was so similar to this one!

    1. The recipe does not state to cook the rice or the stuffing. Just mix as stated. The brown rice cooks in the casserole and the stuffing is mix dry with the butter and then sprinkle over the casserole mixture.

    1. YOU SHOULD INDICATE COOKED WILD RICE UNDER INGREDIENTS. I cooked this recipe with it raw & it was ruined.

    2. Sorry it did not work for you. I have never had any problems with the rice not cooking. Maybe you left out something?
