How to Make Desperation Chicken Casserole


  1. Cook your noodles according to package directions. Be sure to add salt to the water and don't overcook.
  2. Cut the chicken into chunks. Drain and squeeze the spinach til dry, then break it into small sections over the chicken. Add all your seasonings.
  3. Warm the soup, milk, and cheese until the cheese melts. Remove from stove and add the mayo and sour cream. Stir til smooth and mixed. Add cooked noodles to chicken mixture. Pour soup mixture over it and gently stir.
    Spoon into a casserole dish, cover and bake at 350 for 40 minutes. You may wish to add a crumb or cheese topping-again, your choice.
    (PS-he came home from golfing so hungry he could have eaten the bowl, but said he really liked it! Success!)
