Another delicious casserole that was a hit with my family. They loved the crunch of the Panko's and the cheesy layer beneath. I served alone, but would be great with a tossed salad or a vegetable on the side.

Enjoy!

1/2 lb

1 c
each - frozen corn, thawed & thin sliced celery

pepper to taste
10 3/4 oz
can, cream of chicken soup
1 c

1 Tbsp

3 - 4 clove
garlic, minced
1 c

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

Spray an 11 x 7 baking dish with non stick cooking spray or grease.

Cook bacon crisp and drain, crumble.

Par cook celery in microwave, until tender crisp, or could saute in a little butter for a few minutes. If you like it on the crispy side, can add it raw. I prefer to par cook for a few minutes.
2In a medium sized bowl, stir together the chicken, bacon, celery, onion, salt, pepper, sour cream, soup, corn, parsley and garlic, mix well.
3Spread into prepared baking dish.
4Top with cheese and bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until cheese is melted and beginning to bubble.
5In a bowl, add melted butter and Panko crumbs - toss to coat well. Spread over cheese, evenly.
6Place back into the oven and continue baking for another 15 - 20 minutes or until bubbly and crumbs begin to golden.
7Serve hot. This was delicious!
