From Our Kitchen to Yours: Mama’s Chicken Casserole

June 25, 2013

It’s time again for the “From Our Kitchen to Yours” linkup! I had so much fun checking out the yummy recipes that you guys posted last week and I can’t wait to see what you come up with again this week!

From Our Kitchen To Yours

Today’s recipe from me probably isn’t the healthiest meal in the world, and heck, it probably isn’t the prettiest dish either. But for me? This tastes like home.

It’s the only meal (other than breakfast) that I can remember my great-grandmother, my Mama (pronounce maah-maah) making for us. My mom started making it too, and now I’m sharing it with my family!

Mama’s Chicken Casserole
Makes 4 servings

One can of cream of chicken soup
1/2 bag of egg noodles
1 lb. boneless chicken breast, shredded
8 oz. sour cream
5 slices of bread, torn into smaller pieces
4 tbsp. butter
Salt and pepper, to taste

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Fill saucepan with water, add chicken. Add some salt and pepper to the water. Bring water to a boil and cook chicken breasts for about 15 minutes or until cooked through.
3. Remove chicken from water and add egg noodles to chicken water. Cook 6-8 minutes or until soft. While noodles are cooking, shred chicken.
4. Drain noodles, reserving 1 cup of water from noodles/chicken. (Note: You may not use all of the water, but just in case.)
5. Add shredded chicken and noodles to casserole dish. Pour cream of chicken into dish, sour cream, and 1/2 cup of reserved water. Stir in dish, making sure everything is mixed well. Add salt and pepper to taste. (Note: Lots of pepper is a good thing with this dish!)
6. Melt butter in small bowl in microwave. Tear into one-inch pieces and dip in butter. Lay on top of casserole. Repeat this step until entire top is mostly covered with bread.
7. Place casserole in oven and cook for about 10-15 minutes, or until bread is crispy.
8. Enjoy!
