I modified as follows based on what I had on hand:<br />Used Brown rice, used cream of chicken, replaced beans and chestnuts with corn, added 1 1/2 tsp curry, added garlic when sauteeing onions, topped with cornflake, cheese, butter mixture.  So delicious. Will definitely make again. My family loved it. Curry was not overpowering - it just gave it a very rich flavor. <br /> item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great casserole ! I would've liked it as it was written, but I had to modify it quite a bit to satisfy my families tastes. :) I sauteed the onion in butter, then added a small can of mushrooms, the cooked rice and the pre cooked chicken in the skillet. I turned off the heat and then proceeded to add the rest of my ingredients in the same skillet for easy clean up. I substituted corn for the green beans, but only added a 11 oz can. I also substituted the cream of celery for cream of chicken instead. I omitted the pimentos and the water chestnuts. Also I did cut the recipe in half and it was still plenty to add to the 13x9 baking dish. Before putting it in the oven, I added a little bit more shredded cheddar cheese on top of the casserole , and also topped it with seasoned panko. Baked for 20 minutes. The cheese was melted and the panko was slighty crispy. LOVED this casserole ( well my version anyway) ,, so creamy and yummy !! A must try ! item not reviewed by moderator and published
For this I left out the pimentos and replace them with mushrooms and my family adored it! Next time I am going to try asparagus instead of green beans. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Excellent! Made more than a few times. Used cream of mushroom soup and cream of chicken and sub peas for green beans. Great recipe - Thanks Paula!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I think this looks like a great base dish you just need to add some TLC to! For those of you saying that this is a bad dish because of blandness... I say the opposite! This dish is just a blank slate waiting for you and you're taste buds to take to a whole new level. Cooking would never have come so far without tweaking recipes and new innovative ideas. Its all about perceptive! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Pretty good my whole family ate it. I put in bacon and used cream of chicken. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love Paula's cookin' but this is bland city; try fresh beans and add a little soy sauce and thai pepper sauce to take this dish East and put some jewelry on this pig. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just love this casserole! The mayo adds a bit of tang and extra flavor. I have also made it with frozen chopped broccoli instead of the green beans and it's just as good! Some reviews said they left out the water chestnuts, but I can't imagine it without that wonderful crunch. I've also at times added sliced mushrooms. This has become one of our favorites! Thank you for sharing, Paula - you are the queen of good taste. (I have used the low fat mayo and it works fine. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful blend of flavors. I added some ground pepper and sea salt to decrease sodium. I did not have the water chestnuts but if I have them next time it would have made a good crunch. I crushed some saltines on top individual portions and added a litt extra cheese. It was a sinch to make and I am greatful to Paula for sharing her recipes with all of us. Being a mom and even a busy mom and having picky kids that you can sneak stuff in is great. Thank you. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful dish! For those that rated this below a 4-star, you must have not followed the recipe. I have fixed this casserole many times and each time it came out perfect. I added Fried Onions to the top of the casserole that provided for a crunchy and tasty topping. item not reviewed by moderator and published
this was disgusting! This is something to make when you've just given up on yourself. It tasted like one bad casserole. ew. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is an excellent dish! I doubled the recipe because of the size of my family and it worked very well. I used Oscan Mayer "Deli Fresh" grilled chicken breast which comes precooked and ready for use (97% fat free. I followed the recipe to the letter. I served this with garlic bread and a salad.

this recipe was delicious! My family loved it, including my picky 19month old son. I cut the green beans up it small bite size pieces and also saved some of the cheese and sprinkled it over the top of the mixture before putting it in the oven. *delicious* item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good and easy recipe. I use chicken that I have marinated in italian dressing and then grilled. It gives this dish a great smokey flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this was really good, but made some changes. Used cream of chicken instead of cream of celery, halved the mayo, omitted the water chestnuts and pimientos, and added french fried onions on top before putting in the oven. Turned out really good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I read many reviews and made the following changes: 1 tablespoon mayo 4 ounces sour cream 2 tablespoons diced water chestnuts 2 tablespoons pimentos Organic mushroom soup instead of celery soup Fresh green beans cooked in chicken broth for an hour Uncle Ben's Rice Pilaf mixed with Uncle Ben's Long Grain and Wild (didn't use it all I used a whole lemon pepper rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. I cooked the green beans and de-boned the chicken the day before. I used exactly a cup of grated cheddar mixed in, and then lightly sprinkled just a little more on the top. The taste is AWESOME! Do not overdo the cheese. A lot of the taste comes from the flavor packs that come with the Uncle Ben's rice, which is why I diluted the UB's Long Grain and WIld flavor with a package of UB's Rice Pilaf and its flavor pack. I did not add any butter to the rice, and I used spray canola to grease the casserole dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband, who doesn't like chicken, loves this casserole. I make it with a rotisserie chicken, double the cheese, and I substitute cream of chicken for cream of celery. I also omit the pimientos. It's definitely not health food, but it's a good winter meal. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't like mayonnaise or cream of celery soup so instead I subbed sour cream for mayonnaise, cream of chicken for cream of celery and broccoli for green beans. LOL! Yeah I almost completely changed it but trust me it's a good shell of a recipe it just needed some tweaking. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I LOVED how quick and easy this was to make! Also great to make and bring to someone. Thought it could use a little more crunch though...I'm thinking of adding crushed corn flakes to the top next time. Also, making it with light mayo and 98% fat free condensed soup, it isn't half bad for you! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This Was Easy, &amp; Tastes Great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A real winner! I grilled 3 chicken breasts with plenty of salt and pepper until almost done, and cubed. I used a 1 poumd bag of frozed french-cut green beans, cooked, roasted red peppers, a lot of cayenne pepper (our family likes it spicy and cheese on the top when baking. We had guests over and served this with a salad and garlic bread. I will be making this recipe again! item not reviewed by moderator and published

VERY GOOD dinner I made it for the first time and instead of mayo i used cream of mushroom and I used cream of chicken soup instead of cream of celery since i read the reviews and people were saying it was bland. I also seasoned chicken and cooked it in grape seed oil and I used broccoli instead of green beans. I used a jar of roasted re peppers because pimentos were expensive. It made a lot and everybody liked it even my incredibly picky 15 yr old son who only likes steak and spaghetti! I will make this again and again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ok...I have some revisions, to make on my comment.....now need for more mayo, because the extra chz which has oil too,is enough. Also make sure your green beans and rice and chicken are well dried. Add season salt to chicken. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So quick. So easy. So delicious. What a great dinner and fantastic for leftovers or packing up for a budget saving lunch. You're amazing Paula!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great!! My husband &amp; I love veggies and hit the spot. Beats my old chicken &amp; rice recipe by far. Did not have pimentos so I substituted roasted peppers from a jar, great!

My wife made this for us one night for supper. It was very tasty. The crunchy waterchestnuts where great in the dish. Plus I loved the chessy flavor in there as well. We plan on using this same recipe but using Wild Turkey meat instead on chicken. I will let ya'll know how it turns out. Way to go Paula. This dish gets five stars from out family. Keep'em coming. Thanks, Mike item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe last night, and my family was very disappointed. I watched the video and read the recipe a couple of times prior to making the dish, and it seemed like it would be good. The flavor was rather bland, and I would not make it again without making drastic alterations. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is Much Better than Mine.Leave it to Miss.Paula to Add terrific Flavours.Full of Chicken and toothsome chewey Grains and a Rich stick to ribs Sauce.So similar and good,yet this Tastes "Out of this World".Add a Dessert and Salad and complete.No adjustments made for a quick Casserole Dinner.Most ingredients are probably in Pantry/Fridge. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Thanks Paula, this has been a staple in our family's weekly menu. Very good! My children can't have corn or white potatoes, so finding a casserole has been very hard. The whole family loves it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish is amazing! I prepare it for my family once a week. Even my VERY picky four year old loves it. He calls it "crunchy casserole", because of the water chestnuts. YUMMY!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used Cream of Mushroom instead of Cream of Celery and it was very delicious! I think that helped build the flavor, as cream of celery is probably why some people are saying this is bland. If you don't like mushrooms you will not notice them. I will be making this on a regular basis! Also, make sure to add plenty of black pepper. Great dish! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very bland, would not make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great taste! Not a big fan of the crunchy water chesnuts. I see many others loved them, but I didn't like crunching on them. I also substituted a cup of mayonnaise for a can of cream of mushroom soup. No one in my house is a big fan of mushrooms, but you can't taste the actual mushrooms in it and it gives it a nice little addition. You can do so many things to make it your own. I will definitely be making this again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the best cassarole I have ever made and eaten....my guests were floored, my husband loved it, and he's not a cassarole guy! I toasted peacan chips in butter and sprinkled on top a few minutes before taking out of the oven...also substituted frozen broccoli flowerets for green beans...water chesnuts are divine!! Yummmmmmmmy dish!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Good base recipe for a casserole. Next time I'd use fresh veggies instead of canned. Also I like the other reviewers that have tried it with other condensed cream soup flavours, I might try that myself. The best part of this casserole though is the water chesnuts that add a crunch and the cheese. I'd add more cheese on top next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this recipe many times. My husband asks for it, especially because of the water chestnuts, which I slice up. I use regular green beans, and have used every form of cream of soups...celery, mushroom and chicken, and it always, always tastes great. Thanks Paula item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy, quick, and good. If you're a food snob, probably wouldn't be your favorite, but it is a casserole. Nice switch up for Thanksgiving or a potluck. item not reviewed by moderator and published
After reading the reviews, being bland as they say I remembered to salt it, added 1 tsp dry oregano, 1/2 parmesan, 1/3 cup finely chopped italian parsley, 1/8 tsp. ground pepper.. I added only 1 can of green beans which was plentiful. Baked 35 minutes and then topped 2/3 cup of shredded cheddar and baked additional 15 minutes.. Note: Don't omit chestnuts.. you need that crunch when you bite into it..Its worth it..Great recipe, Paula.. Sorry, I had to tweek it.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
OK but very bland. My husband wasn't impressed, won't be making again. I love Paula though! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was really easy. I swapped the mayo for a can of cream of chicken soup, I used only 1 can of green beens and added some carrots, pepper and dried herbs. Since it was for my daughter's school party I omitted the chestnuts(kids are picky). The result was a success! The kids loved it, specially my picky princess. I took the leftovers home and my husband couldn't get enough. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Way good just like it is. Served it to a crowd and got all thumbs up! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I didn't have high hopes for this recipe, but thought I'd try it because it sounded pretty easy. I ended up really liking it. I used cream of mushroom soup and light mayo, but other than that, stuck to the recipe. I'm not usually a huge water chestnut fan, but I really liked the crunch they added. Definitely recommend this one! Oh, and I used french cut green beans...very good. item not reviewed by moderator and published

My 22 year old daughter is not a cook, but she was looking for a recipe for chicken that was easy to fix and she found this one. The recipe was easy to follow and she fixed it all on her own. It was wonderful and had a lot of flavor. Thank you for making things so simple to help my daughter learn to cook. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I reduced the amount of mayo and added another can of soup. I have used cream of mushroom and cream of chicken. I have used roast chicken from the grocery store but today I am boiling my chicken breasts. I do not think you can mess this recipe up. You can add any spice to suit your family's preference. You should taste it before you put it in the oven for flavor. I omitted the pimentos. I have always crushed up Ritz crackers on the top for the last 15 minutes of baking. This is a family favorite. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was wonderful item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for a work event and the guests loved it. The water chestnuts and wild rice added nice texture and flavor. I think one can of (french cut green beans is enough and I also found it needed a bit more seasoning, so I added Tony Chachere's Seasoning Blend. Otherwise a great recipe I will make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It is healthy and good to eat...I think I might add more cream of celery and nix the may. I also skipped the pimentos and chestnuts item not reviewed by moderator and published

Paula normaly I will make youre recipe just like you say, but this one I changed just a little, I reduced it to one can of green bean's but I added two cups of chopped broccolie and added one cup of long grain white rice (cooked) and then I topped it with cheese and potato chips, oh and I used leftover roasted chicken from the night before. This is a recipe I will write down for my kids, and don't worry I will tell them it is from the best their is Paula Deen (oh and Dad too LOL) item not reviewed by moderator and published

I'm always looking for an easy make-ahead meal because I have a two small kids, and, a busy husband. I heard about this casserole and decided to give it a try. It's assembled and waiting in the refrigerator to be baked off later today. I sampled it, and WOW, it's yummy. FIRST- make this AS IS the first time! I used a rotisserie chicken, picked and cubed. I used everything else on the list, but omitted the pimento for personal taste. Instead of canned green beans, I steamed some fresh ones. And I used a "Rice Select" brand white/brown/red/wild blend that I prepared in my rice cooker this morning while my kids ate breakfast. Can't wait to bake this and serve it up! Maybe this can be a nice template for using leftovers. I think using a tasty good quality rice is key. I might try it with sauteed mushrooms and cream of chicken or mushroom soup, too. And, it's not bland. I only added 1/2 tsp salt to my rice. Make it as-is!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this recipe, it was easy and a great dish to make ahead of time on those crazy nights. I switched it up a bit. Instead of green beans and water-chestnuts, I substituted broccoli and red peppers plus I used cream of chicken soup. The red peppers added a lot of color and made it look very pretty. My family loved it! My husband cleaned his plate before I even sat down!! He actually ate all of the vegetables - that never happens!! This will become a staple in our house during the school year. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made it for my family and everyone went up for thirds!! This recipe is great and super easy, I made it with uncle ben's chicken rice and it turned out great!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I make this frequently for guests and family who always ask for the recipe. I substitute a roasted chicken from the deli and use frozen or fresh green beans. I've also made it with fresh sauted mushrooms and frozen chopped broccoli instead of green beans. I always add a bit more cheese along with panko crumbs mixed in melted butter as a topping. I did not like the cream of celery soup and use cream of chicken instead. This is one of those recipes that you can play with and make your own. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't like rice, but this was FANTASTIC! The rice was more like a risotto (which I do like). I cooked the rice in chicken stock to add more flavor. Not being a rice eater, I did not know long grain rice took so long to cook, and it has to be cooked before you start making the casserole, so be warned that this isn't a "quick fix" meal. I omitted the water chestnuts and pimentos and used one rotisserie chicken (which made exactly 3 cups). I had this warmed up, not fresh, and it was GREAT! My family absolutely loved it! Add this casserole to your repertoire! item not reviewed by moderator and published
no words this was awesome never had such a good casserole item not reviewed by moderator and published
I absolutely love this dish and so does my family.... The only the changes I made is I used cream of chicken soup instead of cream of celery and didnt include the nuts but it was still amazing. Actually I think its even better the next day as leftovers warmed up..!!! Thank you Paula item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a fantastic recipe - definitely the old chicken and rice casserole of your childhood. I added a bread and Parmesan topping, with a little melted butter, for extra crunch. Also, my husband said you might want to toss in a can of mushrooms with this recipe as well - or you could get fresh and saute with the onions if that's your thing. Great thing about this recipe, you can add or take away whatever you like. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is my "go to" casserole of all time. My family LOVES it, fixes it, passes it on to other that love it also. I've never seen it fail once! Sure, there are ways to lighten it up a bit, but its not something you eat everyday....unless its a left-over. Man....what a wonderful left--over it is too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed this recipe step by step exactly. Not only did it taste bland, it looked like slop. No one in my family wanted to even try it. After adding some pepper, I managed to eat about a quarter of the casserole within two nights, then finally threw the rest away, which was very wasteful. The water chestnuts in this dish were an awful addition. I have always loved Paula's recipes, but this one was not so good...sorry, that my opinion. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe! 8-] I left out the pimentos and it was still a great dish. I also used cream of mushroom soup insted of cream of celery. I loved having the water chesnuts in there. It gave it a nice crunch. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is not the sort of thing I would make or admit to liking. However, after making it for my husband, I could not stop eating it! It's sinfully addictive. I'm sure it's not low calorie.

I love this recipe whenever I need to make a quick dinner...The only thing I would leave out is the water chestnuts..didn't really like the crunchy factor in the dish! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Nothing fancy, but very yummy and easy to personalize. Very good comfort food that tastes even better the next day. I'm not big on the cup of mayo. The mayo does add some tang, so don't leave it all out, but tastes very good with much less, e.g. quarter to half cup total. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved this recipe, but not a fan of mayo, so I substituted pureed yellow squash. My family loves it and they have no idea there's squash in it! One night I forgot to buy green beans and substituted frozen broccoli. You can use cream of mushroom soup and add a little garlic too and it creates an entirely different flavor. Experiment and change it up, you can't mess up this dish! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good! Whole family had seconds. I wasn't sure about the Mayo and went with light mayo and very happy with the taste. Also substituted mushrooms (because they marry so well with chicken) instead of water chestnuts and very happy with the results. Family agreed this is a great diner to revisit. item not reviewed by moderator and published

After finding this recipe in one of Paula's cookbooks, I decided to give it a try. My small children aren't always big on casseroles, but they ate this one up in no time!! I omitted the water chestnuts because I don't care for the texture, and didn't have pimentos, but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. We all thought it was pretty good, but I felt like there was too much mayonnaise since that was the dominate flavor I tasted. I would love to try this again w/less mayo and a different soup, possibly cream of mushroom. I think whole grean beans vs. french cut would work better also. The recipe in the cookbook specifies french cut. I think adding some slivered almonds and/or french fried onions would be a great addition. item not reviewed by moderator and published
