Chicken Chow Mein Casserole

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Alisa Lea

I got this recipe from a co-worker. It's one of her daughter's favorite meals. We liked the combination of chow mein noodles and cashews. It's a good week night dinner or a way to use up leftover chicken. I have also started adding a can of sliced water chestnuts.

Fabulous, tasty and simple recipe! <br/>I added water chestnuts, baby corn, and the celery and onion. I also used slivered almonds in place of the cashews. (Browned in the oven first before sprinkling on top)<br/>Low Sodium Cream of Mushroom soup and Low Sodium Soy Sauce kept the salt content down somewhat.<br/>Enjoyed over frozen, leftover white rice from chinese takeout.<br/>Thank you for a 5 star dinner Alisa Lea!
