Wild Rice Chicken Supreme

1 (6 oz.) box Uncle Ben's long-grain & wild rice (chicken flavor is better, but original will do)
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup onion, chopped
1/3 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
black pepper to taste
1 cup half and half
1 cup chicken broth
2 cups cooked chicken, cubed
1 teaspoon dried parsley
3 tablespoons slivered almonds

Cook rice as directed on package; set aside. Melt butter in medium saucepan; add onion and saute until softened. Blend in flour, salt and pepper with whisk. Gradually whisk in half and half and broth. Cook on medium to medium-low heat until thickened. Mix sauce, chicken, parsley and almonds into cooked rice. Bake in lightly-greased (or spray with cooking spray) 2-quart casserole dish for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Serves 6-8.

If you want a side dish, make as directed leaving out the chicken.
