Marsala Chicken & Mushroom Casserole

Recipe From: On My Menu Blog via Rachel Ray
This was really good! Can't remember the last time I made a casserole. I used grape juice as the wine substitute.
2 tbsp butter
10 oz mushrooms (sliced)
1 tsp garlic (minced)
1/2 onion (chopped)
1 1/2 tbsp flour
1/2 cup Marsala wine or white wine (I used grape juice)
1/2 cup heavy cream (I used half and half)
2 tbsp parsley (chopped)
Salt and pepper
1 cup long-grain rice
2 cups rotisserie chicken*
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese (shredded)

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 grape juice 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.

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.

*Instead of buying a rotisserie chicken, I boiled and shredded 1-2 chicken breasts. After shredding, I added the following spices: Lawry's seasoning salt, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper and poultry seasoning.
