Chicken and Mushroom Marsala Casserole


I subscribe to the Rachael Ray Magazine and I LOVE it! I gotta be honest, sometimes that woman gets on my nerves with all her little EVOO's and her funny little laughs but I have made several dishes from this magazine and we have loved every single one of them. This was not only extremely easy to make but it was delicious and everyone in my family loved it. She's growing on me I guess.



Chicken Mushroom Marsala Casserole
2 tablespoons butter
10 ounces sliced mushrooms (I used Baby Bellas)
1 1/2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup marsala wine
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
Salt and pepper
1 cup long-grain rice (I used brown long grain)
2 packed cups coarsely chopped rotisserie chicken
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
1. Preheat the oven to 350°. In a large skillet, heat the butter over medium-high heat until just melted. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the flour on top and stir in for 1 minute. Stir in the marsala and cream and simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Stir in 2 cups water, the parsley, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
2. In a greased 9-inch-by-13-inch casserole, spread the rice in an even layer; top with the chicken. Pour the mushroom gravy on top. Cover snugly with foil and bake until bubbly, about 35 minutes. Discard the foil, sprinkle the parmesan on top and bake for 5 minutes more.

That looks terrific. I am usually skeptical about "casseroles" but this looks worth trying. I am bookmarking to make soon, (Plus I love making Rachael Ray recipes so I can drop an "EVOO" here and there - it drives my husband nuts cause he can't stand her.)

I love her magazine. There are always a couple great ones in it. I wish my kids liked mushrooms. I always have to save recipies that have mushrooms in it for company...which we don't have often enough. Looks yummy.

Yum, that looks so good! It will be a hard sell with my 6 year old who doesn't like casseroles or mushrooms, but that didn't stop me from printing it.

I reluctantly will admit that I like Rachael Ray's recipes. She annoys me. Deeply. But her recipes, I like. This one looks quite good, I love mushrooms!

This looks AMAZING, I need to try this! This is something my family would totally love. Going to add ingredients I need for my next grocery run. I'll let you know when I make this bad boy.

As far as RR, I can't stand her. She just annoys me and her "I wanna be cute" attitude, gross. Her voice, ewww. When I come across her show I click my remote SUPER fast to the next chanel. Now, as far as her recipes, I do like that about her but the rest, not so much.

Helene said...

I have to admit that Rachel drives me nuts most of the time. I think it's her voice. I can only listen to her for a little while. :) Looks like she makes a mean casserole. Yum!

I like the sound of this in casserole form, makes so much sense and sounds tasty. I actually have never tried any of her magazine recipes, this one sounds like a winner.

Kathy said...
