Alabama Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Sissylu

My most favorite chicken casserole. I got this recipe from a lady who retired from a job that I took over about 26 years ago. When we had office potlucks, I always requested her to make this. Even though we don't live in Alabama, no other name would seem right for this dish!

This was a truly unique recipe that I will tuck away as pure comfort food. My DS did not care much for the green olives and asked that in the future I substitutue broccoli, but I loved the flavor the olives gave the finished dish. I did add about a half of soup can of the broth to the mixture before placing in a deep 9x9 stoneware baking dish (I did not grease the pan and it was perfect). OK- now for the 1/2 cup of butter I used to saute the veggies- LOL I am going to cut that way back next time and use more broth. I know that it is a part of the overall yumminess but I have to try to lighten it up a bit :) I had a variety of colored peppers to use up so the dish was very pretty with the spinach noodles and the veggies. Thank you for sharing, this will be made again :)
