Someone brought this to a cover dish at the church way back in the eighties. She wouldn't give anyone the recipe. So I took another spoonful to analyze it. This is what I came up with. Don't know if it was her recipe, but we all loved it. I make this a lot for sick friends because it's so easy for them to heat up. In those cases, I make it in disposable aluminum pans. HEAT IT, EAT IT, THROW OUT THE PAN.
Give it a try and add your own veggies. I just recently started using the sweet potato.
This is anyones recipe....so ENJOY!!!!!!

How to Make Crumb Chicken Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Boil your chicken. You can use all boneless chicken breasts, but I like to use my own broth for this, so I use a combination of bone-in, skin on thighs and breasts. I add a little salt maybe 1/2 tsp and pepper to the water for added flavor. When done, take meat off bone and chop into pieces. Strain the broth and set all aside.
  2. While the chicken is cooking, put the croutons in a bowl and pour melted butter over top. Mix until croutons are coated.
    Take half the croutons and spread out in bottom of baking dish. 9 x 9 baking dish makes a thicker casserole. Today I made it in a 9 x 13.
  3. Mix the soup, broth from cooking the chicken and mayonnaise together. Add in the onion, celery, sweet potato and chicken. Mix well.
    At this point I add some seasoning. First I taste for saltiness and add if needed. Pepper, rosemary and thyme are my favorites with this dish.
  4. Pour mixture over the croutons in the baking dish.
    Take the remaining half of croutons and sprinkle over the top.
  5. Cover with foil and bake for 45 - 50 minutes until it's bubbly all through. Last 5 minutes, I uncover to toast up the croutons.
