Chicken Wild Rice Hot Dish

This is one of my go to freezer meals - make a double batch for dinner tonight, and then freeze the other one for later! If you're like us and only need to cook for 2 (Cohen is at the picky food stage!), then a double batch will make 3-4 containers!

Prep Time: 20 Minutes

Cook Time: 40 Minutes

Servings: 8 adults


  • (2 cups shredded (Whole or 1/4 chicken)) Whole Chicken
  • (3 Tbs) Olive Oil
  • (1 finely chopped) Medium Onion
  • (3 Stalks - finely chopped) Celery
  • (3 peeled and diced) Carrots
  • (2 Tbs) Garlic
  • (2 Cups cooked (approx. 1 cup dry)) White Rice
  • (16oz (approx. 4oz dry)) Wild Rice
  • (1 tsp) Salt
  • (1/4 tsp) Pepper
  • (2 Cups) Chicken Broth
  • (3 1/2 Cups shredded) Cheddar Cheese
  • (1/4 tsp) Garlic Salt
  • (4 TBS) Unsalted Butter
  • (1/4 Cup) Flour


-Prepare both of the rices and chop up all the veggies

-Heat oil in a medium pot or dutch oven and saute onion, celery and carrots until softened.  About 10 minutes.  Stir in garlic and cook for 1 minute.  Add in chicken, rice, salt, pepper and garlic salt

-For the cheese sauce - Melt butter in a medium saucepan.  Whisk in flour, salt and pepper.  Slowly add the chicken broth whisking constantly.  Whisk until thick and nearly boiling, then stir in 2 cups of the shredded cheese until melted.  Add the cheese sauce to the cooked rice and veggie mixture.  Transfer to a 9x13 baking dish and top with the rest of the cheddar cheese.

-If you are freezing any of this, do so before baking.  
Bake at 350* for 25-30 minutes or until cheese is melted through.
