1 1/2 cups uncooked long grain white rice
3 cups water
5 cups diced cooked chicken
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
2 cups chicken broth
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons chopped onion
1 (8 ounce) can water chestnuts
1 1/2 cups sliced almonds
1 cup chopped celery
2 teaspoons ground white pepper
1 tablespoon salt
3 cups cornflakes cereal
1 cup butter, melted
Combine rice and water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.
In a large bowl stir together the cooked rice, diced chicken, mayonnaise, yogurt, cream of mushroom soup, and chicken broth. Mix in the lemon juice, onion, water chestnuts, 1 cup of sliced almonds, and celery. Season with white pepper and salt. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish.
In a bowl, toss the remaining 1/2 cup sliced almonds and cornflakes cereal with the melted butter. Spread evenly over the casserole.
Bake 35 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned.
