First, cook enough rice to go on the bottom of a 9X13 pan. (I do 1 1/2 cups dry rice cooked according to directions, which makes abt. 3 cups rice, but some may like less rice.)
2 C. Chicken or turkey, cooked and diced
1 C. Celery, diced
1 small can mushrooms, or abt. 1/3 cup fresh mushrooms, diced
1 Tblspn. Onion, minced
1 Tblspn. Lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1 C. Mayonnaise
1 small can sliced water chestnuts (opt.)
Combine and put over rice.
Top with: 1/3 to 1/2 cups bread crumbs or cornflake crumbs, 1/2 C. sliced or slivered almonds, and either 1 Cup grated cheese or 1/4 to 1/3 C. melted margerine.
Bake at 350 dgrees for about 30 minutes.
