Baked Chicken German Style

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Steve P.

A quick and easy way to prepare a nice chicken casserole. Not quite sure why it's called German style since the cheese used is Italian, but that's the name it had when I found it for a request on the recipe request board.

This was really yummy! I used 1/4 cup butter as 1/2 seemed a little much and it didn't seem to make any difference - the sauce still thickened up just fine. I forgot to butter the casserole dish and that didn't matter either - it didn't stick. I did not have parmesan and sprinkled shredded romano on top which made a nice golden top. And, I didn't have any lemon, paprika or nutmeg so just omitted it. I also was out of milk and mixed up a cup of buttermilk powder and water to substitute. I also added a 10 oz package of frozen broccoli to force some veggies into the kids!
