  2. 1 cup of cooked rice or 1 cup of rice before cooking ?

  3. What can you use in place of water chestnuts ?

  4. Bet this would also be wonderful with leftover turkey that we’ll all be having soon!

    Just in time!! I just happen to have a bunch of cooked and cubed chicken breast in my fridge. Thanks for the recipe..sounds excellent for our cold weather (low single digits tonight)

  6. This looks delicious! I love the idea of using the pre-cooked brown rice in the casserole. It really speeds up the prep time. Thanks for the recipe.
