Update: Since writing this recipe Cracker Barrel has slightly changed their Creamy Chicken and Rice Casserole Recipe. It now uses wild rice and cream of mushroom soup instead of cream of chicken.
Cracker Barrel Creamy Chicken and Rice Casserole Recipe Copy Cat
I love Cracker Barrel… and I don’t say that lightly…. I REALLY LOVE Cracker Barrel! My husband makes fun of me because whenever he asks me what I want for dinner- if there’s a Cracker Barrel near by- I’m all about it! Lucky for him the closest Cracker Barrel is now 25 minutes away… so we don’t eat there as much as we used to when we lived 5 minutes away.
Anyways, one of my favorite meals (besides their yummy hashbrown casserole) is the Creamy Chicken and Rice Casserole that they only serve during certain seasons! It’s oh so yummy… it’s like comforting chicken soup but in a casserole form! Perfect for this cold weather!
Lucky for you I have replicated this recipe almost perfectly…. so are you ready for:
