This cheesy chicken casserole is so delicious and easy to fix but it may take some time out of your day but its worth it! Everyone in my family loved am 13 and with the help of my mother it turned out GREAT! I hope you and your family enjoy! This was from my grandmother in Panama (a Spanish country above South America) which she let me try and share this with others.

My kids love carrots and cheese, so I had to make this! I added chopped onion and sautted it in the butter before adding the flour. I added salt, pepper and some tarragon to make this more flavorful. The tarragon was a wonderful addition. This is nice and cheesey even though there is no milk. I'll make thsi again with my little extras. Thanx!

The family just gobbled this right up. We all love cheesey foods. I'll be sure to make this again. I'd like to see the recipes you talked about in your "about me" file.
