I am very excited to be guest posting today for the first time at Better Homes and Gardens. BHG is such a great source of recipe ideas, gardening tips, and all things home! They are holding a gluten free week this week, and I selected one of the recipes on their website and made it gluten free. You can see the original BHG recipe, and my gluten-free substitutions can be found in my post here.

The original recipe calls for a can of cream of chicken or a can of condensed chicken soup, both of which usually have gluten. To make this recipe gluten free, I instead combined chicken broth with gluten free flour, then added the sour cream which provided just the right amount of creaminess! This combination is a perfect substitution for those canned soups. What I really love about recipes like this one is that it will appeal not only to gluten-free people but to everybody who loves comfort food made with real, whole ingredients – you know exactly what goes into your meal!

I liked this dish so much, I actually made it twice! Second time, I doubled the recipe and used a 3-quart (2.8 liter) baking dish. The original BHG recipe makes 4 servings, so if you want any leftovers, make sure to double the recipe and double my gluten-free substitutions too.

    This casserole looks delicious. I never tried wild rice. I have to give this recipe a try. Pinned.

      You should definitely try wild rice – it’s so good, such a rich flavor!

    Hi, Julia!
    I love how you sub a combination of broth, GF flour, and sour cream for the chicken condensed soup in order to have a GF casserole dish. It looks so goooooood!

    • Julia January 30, 2015, 2:56 pm

      Thanks, Denise, it’s very good – I am about to have the leftovers of this dish for lunch. 🙂

    My casserole has never come out so gorgeous! I love the idea of using sour cream and gf flour instead of canned chicken soup.

    • Julia January 30, 2015, 2:58 pm

      Angie, it’s the wild rice that should take the credit for the casserole looking so nice! 🙂

  • Lindsey @ American Heritage Cooking February 1, 2015, 11:59 am

    What an absolutely genius idea for making a gluten free substitute for the cream of chicken soup! And it is so much better than the canned variety – less salt, more flavor and no preservatives! This is such a wonderful dish, Julia!!

  • Daniela February 2, 2015, 1:58 pm

    This is a whole fire work of flavors,textures and colors in just one dish.

  • Kim Boland July 21, 2015, 12:22 am

    I am hooked and can’t wait to try this!!! But do you happen to have this written in recipe form, pretty please? Sounds sooooo good!

  • Alysia October 18, 2015, 2:27 pm

    I would like to make this recipe but between all the links I have to click to get to the list of ingredients and instructions and then having to read through your post to incorporate the substitutions, it’s kind of a lot. If possible, could you repost the recipe listing the ingredients that include your substitutions and the instructions? Thanks!

    Looks delish. Will have to try as my daughter -in-law has celiacs. She is also allergic to beef, pork, milk and eggs. Luckily there is a non-dairy sour cream and cream cheese so that will work out beautifully.
