Easy Creamy Cheesy Chicken Casserole Recipe


First off this is a recipe I have made countless time – it is usually one I make when I have leftover chicken – but beyond that I have a story for you.

If you did not know I take my recipe pictures using natural lightening – which I found to be the best after a few years of trial and error. WELL – the sun was setting when I went to take this picture and the battery died

So I did not panic – went to charge the battery for five minutes. After 5 minutes the battery was still dead – because the charger broke!!!!!

Sigh long story short this picture was taken with artificial lightening and the outcome is something I am not in love with —- BUT this recipe is SOOOO good I have to post it

Trust me this recipe is a winner even though the pictures looks like something you would see in a 3rd rate diner menu

Okay let’s get on with the recipe

Easy Creamy Cheesy Chicken Casserole Recipe

I told you that it is a easy recipe – most everything you need is in the kitchen already

To make this dish gluten – free simply use gluten – free cream of chicken soup and gluten – free crackers

The recipe calls for cooked chicken breast – I pan- friend this chicken and finished it off in oven at 350 for 20 minutes – meaning I cooked it in a pan on all sides so there was a nice crust then I put pan ( with the chicken still on it ) in the oven to finish the cooking

I then chopped up the chicken – I seasoned simply with salt and pepper on each side
