1 (4 oz.) jar pimentos
1 can cream of celery soup
1 c. mayo
1 (6 oz.) box long-grain wild rice, cooked according to package directions
1 c. grated sharp cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Saute onion in oil until translucent, remove from heat and transfer to a large bowl.
- Add all remaining ingredients and mix together until thoroughly combined.
- Pour into a greased 3-quart casserole dish.
- Bake 20-25 minutes or until bubbly.
- Let stand for a few minutes before serving.

It was so good! I only had white rice so that is what I used and it was awesome. You could also leave the chicken out and make it a side dish. Haha...rotisserie really is the way to go!

I made it last night, it was really good and Chip loved it. I forgot pimentos on the grocery list, he didn't want the water chestnuts and I used a mixture of brown and long grain rice. Still very good!
