Chicken, Artichoke and Rice Casserole

January 7, 2021Teresa

This Chicken Casserole turned out so amazingly. I was actually trying to get rid of a jar of artichokes in my pantry. I started hunting through old cookbooks and found this dandy of a recipe. The casserole is actually a layered casserole. After baking the rice, you line the bottom of a casserole dish with rice. Then you top it with artichokes. Finally, veggies, chicken, bacon and cheese are stirred into a white sauce and that’s layered over top. Another layer of cheese on top before baking finishes the casserole.

Some of you who follow my blog know that my husband suffered a massive stroke in June. He was given a 5% chance of living. Update almost 6 months later: he still lives! He’s made extraordinary progress as a result of hard work, determination, prayers offered by hundreds of people and God’s goodness and grace.

But as a result, we have decided to sell our dream home south of Dallas and move to a retirement community north of Dallas. I had a massive garage sale in October after going through all of our closets and attic. And, I’ve been slowly going through our freezers and pantry trying to get rid of as much stuff as I can.

For this recipe, I had some leftover rotisserie chicken I was trying to use up. I also had a large canister of wild rice on the shelf. On top of that i had a can of artichokes that I was trying to figure out what to do with. After hunting and hunting, I found this recipe in an old cookbook. I decided to give it a whirl. I’m so glad I did, because this entree was awesome. Really.

John took it out for several lunches to his Day Neuro program. We both loved it. It reheats wonderfully and it’s a great dish to serve company as well. The combination of flavors turned out so delightfully that this will be on our menu rotation for years to come. I hope you enjoy it too. 🙂
