Directions

To make the filling, heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Drizzle in some olive oil and cook the onion, carrots, and celery until tender. Add in the mushrooms and cook until they are tender and browned. Add in the garlic, and then deglaze the pan with the white wine. Sprinkle the flour over the veggies and stir. Whisk in the chicken stock and cook until thickened and bubbly. Whisk in the mayo and Worcestershire sauce and heat through. Add the chicken, bacon, peas, corn, and rice and remove from heat. Taste for salt and pepper and add them accordingly. Grind the Ritz Crackers in a food processor or blender. Mix the crackers, panko and butter together. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 x 13 pan. Pour the chicken mixture into the pan. Sprinkle the cheese all over the top. Sprinkle the cracker topping over the top of the cheese. Bake about 15 minutes to melt the cheese and lightly brown the top.
