You can make this a day ahead but it will take longer to bake if chilled.

1 cup butter
1/2 cup plain flour
2 cans (4-1/2 ounces each) sliced mushrooms drained, reserve juice
3 cups chicken broth
3 cups half-n-half

2 boxes (6 ounces each) long grain and wild rice mix, cooked
1 cup slivered almonds, toasted
1/2 cup pimiento, diced
4 tablespoons parsley, chopped
3 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Stir in half-n-half. Cook until thickened. Add mushrooms, chicken, rice and remaining ingredients. Pour into a large casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes until bubbly.
