Steve's Story

This is a great recipe for feeding a lot of folks, or for feeding a few and having left-overs. The celery gives some crunch, and the bread crumbs and cheese browned on top adds a ton of flavor. Enjoy!!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is a different spin on the traditional chicken casserole... and it's really tasty. When I made it for the first time I kept going back and eating the leftovers for a snack! This recipe is terrific if you're looking to feed a hungry crowd - Pair it up with a crisp salad and you've got one satisfying meal.

We made this tonight and thoroughly enjoyed it! I had to add the cheese into the mix (so it would melt) because my one daughter doesn't like cheese (I KNOW, WHO DOESN'T LIKE CHEESE!). It was delicious. My other daughter doesn't eat meat; so I mixed up all of the ingredients (without the chicken); scooped out several servings for her; and then added the chicken and finished it off as your directions stated.

Steve I made chicken spaghetti last week and never thought about bread crumbs. They will add some great texture. Thanks!!

Thanks Steve for noticing about the Panko, I have made other recipes without too. If I'am no mistaken I think you can use cornmeal or starch in place if Panko. Of course at 55 your memory goes after your sight so I really do not think it will be of much difference but I'm going to try this & will report back after I have made & tried it!!!! You have a good weekend.

Hey fellow cooks - just back on after a time away. Marilyn, Joyce, Melinda and Rose - thanks for the kind words. Rose, you made me LOL! Cathy, thanks for the word on the sodium issue with the Panko. Friends, can you help Cathy with a good suggested substitute?

I also just got a notification that Elizabeth just had success with the dish with her family - not sure why her comment isn't showing up here yet. Great news Elizabeth!

This is just a tough one to beat - tastes great, not expensive and great left-overs to boot.
