Ideal winter meals to me include soup, chili, and casseroles. I like warm, comforting food after a long day of work followed by a workout. A recent recipe test that was a resounding success was Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole from the December 2011 issue of Southern Living.
This recipe fills to almost overflowing a 13×9 casserole dish. I’m a big fan of a large casserole because it means dinner is ready for several nights in a row.
This dish includes chicken, rice, celery, onion, and water chestnuts. The celery and water chestnuts provide a nice crunch to go along with the creaminess of the casserole.
If you are looking for a dinner idea, your family may enjoy this dish.
