Can Opener Casserole

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Jellyqueen

So easy and good. Nice comfort food for weekdays. I must admit though, I did not use canned chicken the first time I made this. I used fresh, skinless, boneless chicken breasts that I sauteed in olive oil -- thus ruining the whole "can" thang. I'm sure canned chicken would be just fine, but I had fresh chicken on hand rather than canned. A bit of soy sauce or maybe a can of peas or mixed "Chinese" veggies could liven it up a bit. Experiment!

Loved the Title and the concept is great - I did however take a couple of liberties (supply & demand) I used fresh chicken breast stir fried with fresh mushrooms. Instead of a can of chowmein noodles I used crisp in the bag.I cut the recipe in half, Now this sounds like I changed a lot in the recipe but I stuck to the ingredients so I still feel fair reviewing this as your recipe. Lovely appearance but it lacked just a little zing so I added 1 tsp chile flakes and loved it. Thanks Shelley for being so innovative to come up with a "From the cupboard tooven in under 5 minutes"recipe"
