Recipe: Easy Cheesy Chicken and Veggie Casserole

This quick and easy recipe is one of those with Cream of Chicken Soup… I know.. am I embarrassed that I cook with Cream of Chicken Soup?… to put it lightly.. notta chance. It may not be gourmet .. but everyone loves it… and isn’t that what really counts?

Now doesn't that look just yummy? It was!


I used one can of Campbell’s Cream of Chicken Soup and one can of Cream of Chicken Mushroom. The latter is hard to find.. at least here in our little slice of heaven… I pick it up whenever I see it… you can use two cans of Cream of Chicken. I don’t use Cream of Mushroom in this casserole.. I like a chickeny (like that word?... you get the idea) flavor… but you certainly can use it if you really want to.

I used the lower fat variety of the soup.

The recipe calls for Fat Free half and Half… the stuff is great… I always have somein the fridge… if you don’t .. sub milk for it.

I used a bottle of sliced mushrooms… you can use fresh.. but this is easier… for sure.

The only seasoning I used this time was a little minced onion.. you can add whatever floats your boat.. a suggestion is a sprinkling of dried thyme… it gives it a really nice flavor.

You don’t have to thaw the veggies or cook the chicken first.

The idea behind this meal is to give the family something they like and give you the night off… well not totally off… but really.. how long does it take to throw it all in a big bowl… mix and pour into a casserole dish….

Oh and speaking of casserole dishes… use one around the size of a 13 x 9… I always put it on a baking sheet in case it bubbles over.. mine didn’t.. but that’s because I had the baking sheet under it… if I hadn’t done that.. I’d be cleaning my oven now.

Serve this over noodles… with some cranberry sauce on the side.. and ta da! … supper is on the table!
