"This is a terrific recipe to make when you have left over chicken. Saves a step, cuts down on the prep time and uses up that chicken."

  • Poach chicken in water, when cool enough to handle pull apart into bite-size pieces.
  • In a large 9x12 casserole layer cooked chicken, drained corn and broccoli.
  • Mix soup with milk, cheese, mushrooms and pimentos.
  • Heat and pour over chicken.
  • Sprinkle top with Ritz crackers which have been mixed with enough butter to moisten.
  • If prepared ahead and refrigerate, do not top with the Ritz until ready to bake.
  • Bake for 1 hour or till bubbly and hot.
  • Do not fill casserole to full; this cooks over easily.

  1. I added about 2 cups of cooked macaroni to this along with another can of soup and some extra milk. I kept the Velveeta the same because my husband isn't a big fan of it. I stirred everything together then cooked in a 13 x 9 for 35-40 minutes. It was delicious! Very creamy and we enjoyed the corn/broccoli combo. I will make the recipe as written another time when my husband isn't requesting a "noodle casserole". Thanks for the recipe!!
  2. This is delicious! Only changes I made were to use fresh mushrooms that I needed to use up, and a bit of diced bell peppers. This is a new favorite!!
  3. This was wonderful. I didn't have any regular corn in the pantry. I did have creamed corn instead and used it. Very delicious. The first word my bf said was YUM after the first bite.
  4. This recipe is very easy to assemble. I boiled my dark meat chicken in water that I had added rosemary, thyme, celery, and a touch of sage to. I omitted the corn and used a California Mix of frozen veggies (carrots, cauliflower & broccoli). I thought it was very good.
  5. I saw this posted and decided to make it tonight. We both loved the flavor. There is a lot of sauce so I wanted some rice to go with it. Easy recipe. Next time I will keep it in mind when we have leftover rotisserie chicken.
