Ham Chicken Casserole

I am retired and always looking for fast-to-fix foods to serve when my children or grandchildren stop by. Leftover chicken, ham and a wild rice mix make this comforting dish quick to assemble. If you have extra turkey, you can use it instead of the chicken. —Lovetta Breshears Nixa, Missouri

    I love any dish that creamy I going use white rice, never care for wild or brown rice, I’m just wondering will the white rice work.

    This was a very good dish. Easy to put together ahead of time. I made two smaller casseroles for my husband and I on Sunday, and dinner was ready to go two nights during a very busy week. I'm sure it would freeze well too.

    This was just ok for me. The cream sauce was pretty heavy and needed something else added to it, like maybe some thyme.

    Flavorful and comforting in the cold winter months of the midwest.
