My Dad and I really enjoyed this recipe, I only made half since there is just the two of us and there is enough for us to have two more meals out of it. I did add a little onion and a little sage. This will be used over and over.
Thank you so much for posting this recipe! This is exactly how my beloved grandmother made chicken casserole, and it was one of my favorite foods ever! She'd always serve it with a dollop of sour cream on top, and could never tell my Mama or Daddy (who loved this casserole) that she used Cream of Mushroom soup, as they hated mushrooms. We would always laugh and share secret smiles when they would try to guess what her 'secret ingredient' was. With your recipe, I'll be able to carry on those memories with her to my husband and child.
I had some frozen Perdue chicken breast tenders and used seven to fill the bottom of the 13 x 9 pan. I sprinkled the breast with the salt pepper and garlic. I had an 8 oz. pkg. of mushrooms that I placed over the chicken and had 5 slices of Lorraine Swiss lowfat cheese that I laid over the mushrooms. I didn't have cream of chicken soup, so I used a can of cream of asparagus and cream of mushroom (both low fat) and thinned with 1/2 cup white wine and 1/2 cup milk. Had no sage and onion seasoned stuffing mix either so I substituted with cornbread stuffing. This was a delicious recipe and very quick and easy to put together. My husband loved it and I will be making often...thanks Margo59!!!
