Gluten Free Chicken Casserole with Mushrooms and Rice

Gluten Free Chicken Mushroom and Rice Casserole

I made this gluten free chicken casserole in an attempt to replace a similar recipe I used to make using Campbell’s Soup Golden Mushroom Soup. I am allergic to tomatoes now, and cannot use the soup for that reason as well as its gluten content. I hope you enjoy this recipe. I enjoy its flavor and because it is almost a one-dish recipe. (You still have to saute the onions in a separate pan.) Bon appetite!

UPDATE: I now use 1-1/2 cups of the below recipe for Golden Mushroom Soup for this recipe, (minus the mushrooms or not) in place of the water, milk, and packaged soup.
