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 wants, 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!
