Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit and prepare a 9X13 inch baking dish by spraying it with nonstick cooking spray.
Cook the wild rice mix according to the package directions and set aside.
Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat and add in the onion and chicken breasts. Saute until the chicken breasts have been seared on all sides but aren’t quite cooked through, about 3-5 minutes.
To the skillet add the garlic, mushrooms, thyme, parsley basil, salt and pepper and saute another 5 minutes, until everything has come together and the mushrooms have cooked down a bit.
Remove the skillet from heat and stir in the cream of mushroom soup, sour cream, parmesan cheese, and cooked wild rice mix. Stir to mix well. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish.
In a medium bowl whisk together the breadcrumbs, butter, and parsley. Pour the topping over the casserole and bake uncovered for 20-30 minutes, until the topping is golden brown.
Remove the casserole from the oven, let it stand at room temperature at least 5 minutes before serving.
