Rain, rain, rain, and more rain. That was yesterday’s forecast, and it’s today’s too.

Hopefully things will clear up by tomorrow. Hopefully. But even if it doesn’t, we’re rolling with it. Fuzzy slippers, over sized couch throws, two batches of Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate later, and we’re well into our family Harry Potter marathon.

Creamy Chicken Caesar & Wild Rice Casserole

Harry Potter is a very serious, sacred franchise in our household. Which means, limited to no interruptions unless at previously scheduled, agreed upon intermissions.

Even then, you’d better handle your break time efficiently because if you’re the last one back to the living room– everybody’s gonna be staring you down in their urge to press ‘play’.

Even me having to make dinner isn’t above the unspoken etiquette of family movie marathon days. But nobody wants to go hungry, so I embrace one of my favorite types of meals– the lovely, all in one dish– a casserole.

Not just any casserole though, because it’s cold, and dreary, and wet so some sort of comfort food is definitely in order.

Luckily, this Creamy Chicken Caesar & Wild Rice Casserole dots all the i’s & crosses all the t’s.

I used pulled rotisserie chicken, for quickness and convenience of course. I used prepped veggies so no time was wasted there. 

A quick sautee in the pan to get things going, and then dumped it into the casserole dish for a 30 minute bake in the oven. This casserole is super simple.

  1. This looks like a great casserole for a hungry family. Maybe a little too rich for me but there are always ways to cut back. Enjoy your week and thanks for coming to the Fiesta Friday party.

  2. I love anything cheesy. I mean who doesn’t, right? 😀 This looks absolutely delicious! Thanks for coming and sharing this at Fiesta Friday party!

  3. Stacey,
    The “Creamy Chicken Caesar & Wild Rice Casserole” recipe does not indicate that the rice should be made ahead. It also doesn’t have enough liquid in the recipe to account for what would be needed either. I kept trying to figure out how it could work. Anyhow, it’s in the oven now, and I added 2 cups chicken broth just to assure myself that there was liquid in the recipe. Have no idea how this will work, but I still think it needed to say in the recipe that the rice should be prepared ahead. Guess I will find out the hard way! Please take another look at the recipe and let me know what should have been done. Thanks!

    1. Sorry, you were second guessing it Betsy. We’ve made this many times, and the rice doesn’t get cooked ahead of time. I triple checked the recipe, and it’s 100 % correct as written. As long as you’re using the correct boxed rice (as instructed) it will in fact cook up in the casserole in the oven. I hope it was still enjoyable with the extra liquid!

      1. I have this in the oven right now. I did not put the seasoning packs that comes in the boxes of rice in the mixture. Is that correct? Thank you.

  4. 4 stars
    I tried this recipe and it was really tasty! Thank you for sharing. When I made this, I cooked the rice according to directions on the box and then mixed everything together because I thought it would be too dry without any liquid being added to the recipe. It turned out perfect and so delicious. Only thing I would change next time is not adding green beans. To my husband and I, they over-powered the taste of the Caesar flavor in the casserole.

    1. Different strokes for different folks, Lexie! Glad you guys enjoyed it, and for us the beans are essential. I can see leaving them out though and maybe serving on the side if you’re going for full effect of the Caesar flavor.

    1. So sorry you had this experience. Not sure what went wrong. The rice always cooks fully for me when baked as written. The edges get a little crispy, but other than that totally edible.
