1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spread rice evenly over bottom of a 13x9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle rice evenly with half of the cranberries, half of the spinach, half of the cheese, all of the turkey, then the remaining spinach, cranberries and cheese.

2. Combine chicken broth, onion powder, garlic powder, thyme, mustard and cornstarch in a small bowl; mix well with whisk or fork until cornstarch is completely dissolved and immediately pour evenly over layered casserole ingredients.

3. Cover tightly with foil and bake 20 minutes. Uncover and bake 5 minutes longer or until liquid is almost absorbed. Let stand 5 minutes. Garnish with almonds, if desired.
