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!

How to Make ~ Crunchy Cheesy Chicken Casserole ~

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat 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.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, stir together the chicken, bacon, celery, onion, salt, pepper, sour cream, soup, corn, parsley and garlic, mix well.
  3. Spread into prepared baking dish.
  4. Top with cheese and bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until cheese is melted and beginning to bubble.
  5. In a bowl, add melted butter and Panko crumbs - toss to coat well. Spread over cheese, evenly.
  6. Place back into the oven and continue baking for another 15 - 20 minutes or until bubbly and crumbs begin to golden.
  7. Serve hot. This was delicious!
