Everybody loves this one! It's an easy, delicious chicken, rice and corn casserole that is big enough to feed a crowd (you may halve the recipe, if desired.) It's great for using up holiday leftovers because you can use turkey instead of chicken. Use fresh sweet corn if available. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do; it's an original, developed with my love for good, down-home food and family.

  1. Lightly butter a 9"x13" casserole dish.
  2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy (I just use a fork.)
  3. Add 1/2 can cream of mushroom soup and mix well, until cream cheese is well incorporated and no lumps remain.
  4. Gradually add remaining soups and mix well.
  5. Slowly add milk and mix well.
  6. Add seasoned salt, pepper, rice and corn. Mix well.
  7. Add chicken and mix well.
  8. Place oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  9. Pour mixture into prepared casserole dish and smooth down.
  10. Evenly sprinkle cheese over the top.
  11. In a medium bowl, combine crushed cornflakes and melted butter.
  12. Spoon evenly over the top of the casserole.
  13. Bake at 350 degrees, until lightly browned and slightly bubbly all over, about 1 hour, rotating once after 30 minutes.
  14. Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.
  15. Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
