Chicken Pot Casserole
Healthy Exchanges Cookbook p.161
This is my contribution to the "chicken in every pot" promised us so many years ago. It has the flavor of a traditional pot pie but without all the work-or all the fat. Serve this to your family, then stand back and enjoy the applause.
2 cups cooked noodles, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 full cup (6 ounces) diced cooked chicken breast
1 cup frozen carrots, thawed
1 cup frozen green beans, thawed
1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
1/2 cup (one 2.5-ounce jar) canned sliced mushrooms, drained
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can Campbell's Healthy Request Cream of Mushroom Soup
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1/3 cup (1 1/2 ounces) Kraft shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
3 tablespoons 3/4 ounce) dried fine bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine noodles, onion, chicken, carrots, green beans, peas, mushrooms, mushroom soup, poultry seasoning, black pepper, and parsley. Pour into an ungreased 8-by-8-inch baking dish. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until hot. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese and bread crumbs on top and bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
Hints: 1. A full 1 3/4 cups uncooked noodles usually make about 2 cups cooked.
2. Purchase cooked chicken breast from your local deli and dice it when you get home.
