Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole

This is a dish I haven't made in a long time. Not sure why since it's one we all like. I made it last week when I was taking a meal to a friend and decided to make it for us that night as well.

Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole
serves 4

2 Tbsp. butter
1/2 onion, chopped
1-2 boneless chicken breasts (or thighs would work well), cut into bite size pieces
1 package of Long Grain and Wild Rice
a couple handfuls of shredded cheddar cheese

Melt butter in a skillet and add onion and rice. Cook until rice is golden and the onion is softened. Add water according to the rice package directions (about 2 cups) and the chicken. Bring to a boil and add the cheese and seasoning packet from the rice. Pour into a 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish and bake at 350* for 25-30 minutes. The rice should be soft and the chicken cooked through.
