    This does sound yummy, although, I’m not sure we can be friends if you’re a Rachel Ray fan! (just kidding) I’m sure you can use coconut milk in place of cream, I’ve been doing that a lot lately in recipes, and everything turns out beautifully!

    This is a perfect thing for me to make with that brown rice in the freezer! This looks yummy and comforting.

    Oh my, this looks like a perfect meal for a fall evening. I look forward to serving this to my family. I use whole chickens a lot. I get a lot for the money out of a whole chicken! I love using the meat and broth to make wonderful soups and casseroles. I would love the mushrooms! Do you have any suggestions in case my kids don’t like them?
    Thanks! I am really enjoying your blog:)

    Leave the mushrooms out. I think you could also cook any vegetable part way and then add the chicken in just like you would for any casserole. Or, make two bakes and put mushrooms in one and something else in the other. This is really so simple and versatile you can really be as creative as you want and put anything that sounds good to you in it. I use leeks because Joe loves them but regular yellow or white onions would work just fine.

    OH YUM! I cannot wait to try this. Perfect Sunday night dinner!

    So funny about the magazines…I cut WAY back but find myself ramping back up. I can’t live without Sunset, and I really like Clean Eating. I asked for subscriptions for Christmas so that makes an easy gift for people. Then after a year I can decide if it’s worth paying for myself.

    I’m going to try this dish with our asian rice combos and I’ll let you know how it works out.

    This was sooo good!!! I made it tonight for my family. The kids didn’t eat much but they don’t eat much of anything. My husband and I loved it. I will definitely be making it again. Thanks!

    This looks delicious. I’m always looking for good recipes to put in the freezer. At what point in the preparation would you freeze this?

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Chari, I put precooked rice in the bottom of the dish, make the chicken, mushroom, & leek topping and put that on top of the rice. Once it’s cooled I wrap it and freeze it. I’ve even baked it partly frozen with no problem at all.

    Made this last night and the whole family loved it! The girls did pick out most of the mushrooms but they ate all the rest and Lyla said, “more!” when her bowl was empty :)

    I will definitely make this over and over!

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was SOOOOOO GOOOOOD. I am happy as a clam! The only thing I didn’t do was I thought I had Texmati rice in the pantry and didn’t so I ended out using Sushi rice. BUT it was really good! Thank You for the recipe! I think next time I may add some spinach. This is a great recipe for personalization!

    @Jen, Thanks for coming back to let me know. My husband loves this dish. It’s easy to make ahead and freeze, too. Just add some liquid when reheating. I love the spinach idea, Jen. I’m a spinach fiend…not sure why it never crossed my mind. Hugs.

    I don’t know what I did wrong but after an entire hour in the oven my rice was only half cooked and the liquid wasn’t even close to absorbed.

    I ended up pouring the whole mixture into a pan and boiling for another 25 min to get the rice to an edible consistency. (I would have left it longer but we were 30-60 min past our normal dinner time and my pregnant self couldn’t take it any longer!) By that point, much of the flavor was lost.

    I think this recipe has potential but I’ll be pre-cooking my rice and using less liquid in the chicken portion next time I try something like this.

    @KH, It sounds you either didn’t add boiling stock to the rice before putting it in the oven or you the foil on the baking container wasn’t really tight and the steam escaped. It totally works…and it’s so simple.

    Hugs,

    This was HANDS DOWN the best casserole I have ever made!! I had made a few substitutions to my preferences (quinoa instead of rice, green onions intead of leeks, organic chicken thighs instead of whole chicken). It came out very light and fluffy and gave feeling of full. I enjoyed how I could taste each ingredient in each bite. Thank you for continually inspiring my gluten free recipes!

    @Alison, It sounds great! Did you use the same quantity of green onions? Just trying to get a feel for your variation as they’re much stronger than leeks.
    Hugs,

    I realized as I started this recipe I used the last of my brown rice w a slow cooker Chinese lemon chicken recipe the night before :(
    But my husband suggested a pasta, so I fully cooked the whole 8ox box of Ancient Harvest Quinoa Rotelle (only 9 minutes after rolling boiling). Followed the rest of your recipe to the T, then noodles into the dish, 3/4 cup of room temp broth, poured the chicken mix on top, into the over for 20 minutes with foil, then parm on top, 10 minutes uncovered, and perfect!!! Cut the time in half (although in would have preferred the brown rice, i was happy w the nutritional trade w/quinoa pasta).
    This is one I’ll bring to pot lucks and not even mentions its gluten free!
    (P.S. I didn’t find where in the recipe to add the white pepper, but I assumed tossing it into the end of the chicken mix cooking?)
    Love your book, love this sight-you’re such a part of my process nowadays :)

    @JulieAFLeck, Thanks so much for sharing your variation, Julie. So glad you enjoy my book and blog. You made me smile. I’ll update the white pepper so it’s accurate in the recipe.

    Hugs,
    Amy
