    3KillerBs's Note:

    This classic, budget-friendly dish from the past is just as good at is always was -- especially if you skip the salty, canned mushroom soup and make it with good, homemade chicken stock (I suggest Crock Pot Chicken Stock ), and frozen peas instead of canned peas. This particular version is a bit richer in meat than strictly necessary so if your budget is especially tight you can cut it down and it will be fine. Use water-packed tuna to be diet-friendly as well as budget-friendly. Note -- cooking time includes the 5 minute rest at the end.

    1. 1
      Drain tuna or chop chicken finely.
    2. 2
      Bring chicken stock (and optional mushrooms if desired), to a boil. Add celery seed and thyme.
    3. 3
      Use a fork or a whisk to combine cornstarch with cold milk. Adjust amount according to whether you want a thicker or thinner sauce. Add to boiling stock, reduce heat, and stir until the sauce simmers gently.
    4. 4
      Add tuna/chicken, peas, and sherry.
    5. 5
      Heat through and season to taste with salt and fresh-ground black pepper.
    6. 6
      Remove from heat. Let sit, keeping warm, for 5 minutes to blend flavors.
    7. 7
      Serve over the starch of your choice -- rice, toast points, noodles, cornbread (I suggest recipe Basic, Frugal Cornbread ), biscuits, etc.
    8. 8
      Note -- if you have no homemade chicken stock I suggest using a good soup base (Tones brand is available in Sam's Club). Both bullion cubes and canned chicken broth are inferior substitutes for real stock and a dish this simple depends on the quality of the ingredients for good flavor.
    9. 9
      Tip -- if you enjoy tuna casserole but have give it up because of the salt in the mushroom soup try using a suitable quantity of this recipe (with or without the peas), as a substitute for the diluted soup.
