Best Ever Chicken Casserole

Submitted by: Mary Berrong

Rated: 4 out of 5 by 203 members Yields: 4 servings

"Water chestnuts and corn flakes give added texture to this blessedly easy-to-make item."


4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

1 (8 ounce) can water chestnuts

1 onion, chopped

1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup

1 cup cornflakes cereal crumbs

1 cup mayonnaise


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2. In a large pot, boil the chicken until tender. Cut the breasts into cubes or small pieces.

3. In a large bowl, combine the chicken pieces with the water chestnuts, onion, soup, most of the crushed corn flakes and mayonnaise. Mix well.

4. Pour mixture into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle the rest of the crushed corn flakes on top of the

mixture. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour


French Potato Casserole

Serves 8

4 pounds of Russet potatoes

one cup of melted butter (use real butter)

one half cup of grated onion (white, yellow or shallots)

salt and pepper


This is an amazingly simple dish and even without any kind of cheese these potatoes taste incredibly rich. Must be all that butter!

Peel the potatoes. Put them in a deep bowl with water so they don't brown while you prepare them.

You'll need a 9 X 13" oven proof casserole. (The size can vary a bit but you'll find out soon that everyone wants some of the "crust" so keep it larger).

Slice the potatoes paper thin. I use my mandolin for this project. On level 2, I get potato slices that are a sixteenth of an inch. Uniform --and you can cut them really fast. Use your guard so you don't slip and cut yourself. If you don't have a mandolin use a very sharp knife and be careful.

After the first potato is cut put a layer of slices in the bottom of the casserole. Sprinkle on a Tbl of grated onion and salt and pepper. Now put on the next layer. After this layer drizzle on some of the butter. You're going to continue like this until all of the potatoes are gone. Don't use salt and pepper on every layer. That might be a bit much. Keep an eye on how much onion you put on between layers so it can last until the last of the potatoes. Same with the butter. You want one last drizzle on top. Then top it off with a light dusting of paprika for color and even a crack of black pepper so you have those specks on top too.

Cover the potato casserole with aluminum foil. Pop this in your 400 degree oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes take off the foil and let it bake 30 minutes more. You should form a nice medium browned crust on the top. The crust is going to be a major hit. Believe me. Zola knows. Cut with a serving spoon or sharp knife and use a spatula to take it out of the casserole. It will be steaming hot.

This makes great leftovers to go with breakfast or perfect for a brunch table.


Noodle Casserole

3 c. uncooked egg noodles

1 tbsp. butter or margarine

1/4 c. chopped onion

1/2 c. chopped celery

1 can (10 3/4 oz.) condensed cream of chicken soup

1/2 c. mayonnaise or salad dressing

2 c. cubed cooked ham or turkey

1/4 c. sunflower nuts, optional

1/4 c. crushed potato chips

Bring 4 cups water, 1 tablespoon cooking oil and 1 teaspoon salt to a

full rolling boil in a 3 quart covered glass dish for 6 to 10 minutes

on High. Stir in noodles and recover. Microwave 8 to 10 minutes on

medium, or until tender. Drain, rinse with hot water and set aside.

Place butter, onion and celery in a 2 quart glass casserole.

Microwave about 3 minutes on high, or until partially cooked. Stir

in remaining ingredients (except potato chips). Sprinkle chips on

top and microwave about 8 to 11 minutes on medium high, or until

heated through. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. About 4
