Chicken Casserole

Growing up we always had a flock of chickens. I remember Mama would find an old hen that wanted to "set" and put eggs under her. We always had fried chicken on Sunday after church.

During the fall of the year Mama and Daddy would "cull" out the old hens and they would put them in the freezer to use for the winter.

Today, I use boneless, skinless chicken that I find at my local Wal-Mart. But I do miss the days of feeding chickens and gathering eggs.
