DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Butter a 13 by 9 inch shallow baking dish.
  • Spread hot mashed potatoes evenly across the bottom of the baking dish, coming up the sides somewhat to create a shell.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the chicken, vegetables, soup, sour cream, onion or chives, mustard, garlic, and pepper.
  • Spread the chicken mixture on top of the mashed potatoes, and sprinkle evenly with the shredded cheese.
  • Bake uncovered for 45 minutes (or bake for about 1 hour if made ahead and refrigerated), until cheese is melted and casserole is hot and bubbly.
  • Remove casserole from the oven, let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
  • Good served with warm buttered biscuits.
  • Note: This casserole is even more over-the-top awesome made with a breadcrumb or stuffing topping. Assemble the casserole as directed, reserving the grated cheese. During the last 30 minutes of baking, top casserole with 1-2 cups freshly torn soft breadcrumbs (or stuffing mix), seasoned with a pinch of poultry seasoning and a few dashes of celery seeds. Drizzle with 2-3 tablespoons of melted butter, and then top with the grated cheese. Bake until topping is lightly browned and casserole is hot and bubbling. Extra yummy!
