Church Supper Chicken and Wild Rice Hot Dish
November 30, 1999
By Judith M. Fertig
Hot dish means casserole in the language of Minnesotans. Often it is something of a joke, the sort of meal a harried mother or disinterested cook might throw together. In its worst form, it contains ground beef and one or another -- or even several -- kinds of canned soup, stirred together with some frozen potatoes and then baked. But not all hot dishes are created equal. Here is one that does Minnesota proud. Take this to a potluck supper and you will gets lots of request for the recipe. -- "Prairie Home Cooking"
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and saute it until it is translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Sprinkle on the flour and stir to blend it in. Pour in the stock and half-and-half cream, and bring just to a simmer, whisking frequently. Simmer gently for 5 minutes, whisking often, then add the salt, pepper and nutmeg. Stir in the dried mushrooms, chicken and parsley.Lightly oil, or spray with cooking spray, a 2-quart casserole dish. Spread the wild rice in the bottom of the casserole. Spoon in the chicken mixture, then sprinkle the cheese over the top. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the casserole is hot and bubbling. Serve hot.
