Here’s a recipe that is a family fav! $7.75 for 4 servings! I usually double this but don’t add as much chicken. I don’t have the exact measurement but it is usually just a $4 package of chicken that I picked up on sale. It still ends up being less than $10 for us. (My prices are based on the awesome rock bottom deals I get!)
Yummy! Chicken Casserole
- 2 lbs of chopped cooked chicken ($4)
- 1 – 10 3/4 oz. can of cream of chicken or cream of mushroom (.50)
- 1 8 oz. carton of sour cream ($1)
- 1 tablespoon poppy seeds ($1)
- 1 1/2 cups of crushed round buttery crackers ($1)
- 1/4 cup butter or margarine melted (.25)
Combine first 4 ingredients; spoon into greased baking dish. Combine crushed crackers and butter; sprinkle over chicken mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Add frozen corn or peas to make it veggilious! Bake some Pillsbury Grands Dinner Rolls ($1 on sale & after coupons!) along with it.
I made this Monday night and I thought I had all the ingredients. However, I didn’t have any poppy seeds and only had about 4 oz. of sour cream and no buttery crackers. Who doesn’t have Ritz crackers in their house? Me, apparently. So I just added all the sour cream I had and used Pepperidge Farm Bread Crumbs & poured a can of chicken broth over the top. A 9 x 11 pan was over 3/4 gone when I got home so apparently they loved it!
My Aunt Jane emailed me gave this AWESOME suggestion. I’m going to try this next time! (Plus, egg noodles are on sale this week at Meijer for $1.19 for a 16 oz. bag!)
One thing I do to stretch it is to cook a bag of noodles and put them on the base of your baking dish (be sure to spray the pan) it also fills everyone up faster and they stay that way longer !!!!!!
