Old Fashioned Tuna-Potato Chip Casserole

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Country Cook in Okl

This recipe was popular in the 60's. It was one of the first tuna casserole's and is still a great comfort food today. Easy to make and has all the things that are usually on hand. This can also be made with the same size can of chicken. Sometimes I add mushrooms and english peas.

My whole family loved this. We don't eat tuna casserole often so I nervous about serving it. However there were no leftovers. I used lemon noodles which complemented the tuna perfectly.
