Not your normal {Broth}




I am thrilled to be part of the Knorr Four Recipe Contest hosted by Blogher! I was sent the new Knorr Homestyle Stock. It is full of the perfect herbs and vegetables and taste just like a stock made from scratch. Each little tub makes 3 1/2 cups of broth and is a much better value than cans! I loved it because it can be diluted with almost any liquid and was perfect in my "cheese" sauce!

I remember my grandmother making a similar recipe. But, this is my own recipe that I have changed here and there as the years have passed. It's a great casserole that has a wonderful homemade taste filled with great stuff like cheese, chicken and wild rice.

"Home style Wild Rice and Chicken Casserole"

(Prep time-25 minutes; Bake time-30 minutes; Serves- 10 to 12 people)

Ingredients:

4 T of oil

1 cup onion (diced)

1 cup of carrots (chopped)

3 cloves of garlic (minced)

2 cups cooked chicken (chopped)

3 cups of prepared wild rice

1 tsp. of salt and pepper

Sauce:

5 T butter

1/4 cup flour

1/2 tsp. of pepper and salt

2 cups of Knorr Homestyle Stock prepared

2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese

* Preheat the oven to 350. In a pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Saute onion, carrots and garlic until it is soft. Stir in cooked chicken, rice and spices. Set aside while making sauce.* To make sauce- Melt butter over medium heat in saucepan. Stir in flour, salt and pepper then slowly stir in Knorr Homestyle Stock. Stir until thick and then stir in 1 1/2 cups of cheese until melted. Pour sauce into rice mixture and put in "sprayed" 9x13 baking dish.

Sprinkle the 1/2 cup of shredded cheese over casserole and bake for 30 minutes.

Serve with side salad and bread. Enjoy!
