- 2 Chicken Delight Casseroles
This recipe is a favorite of mine that I remember from my childhood. My mom made this casserole many, many times and I always have fond memories of it. I LOVE it! It's so easy, so tasty, and so great for a crowd! It's actually called Turkey Delight, but with all the chicken I have, I swapped, and chicken works just a good.
If you're interested, here's the tasty recipe:
4 cups cooked Turkey (or chicken)
3 eggs slightly beaten
1 cup cooked rice
1 cup breadcrumbs
3 Tbl melted butter
2 cups chicken broth
1.5 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
Mix all together and bake in a 9x13 pan 50 min @ 350
Yeah. Super easy! Here's the recipe for the sauce that goes with it. I don't always make the sauce---the casserole is just as tasty and yummy on its own---but, it's great to have, especially if you're having company for dinner.
Sauce: (Double to have enough for 6 or more)
3 Tbl butter
3 Tbl flour
cook both of those, then add:
1 cup chicken broth
3 Tbl cream or milk
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup sliced mushrooms
**Add parsley and mushrooms last and cook to a creamy sauce
- Boiled and shredded 12 more pounds of chicken
- Chicken Stock
- Chicken Noodle Soup (I substituted this for dinner tonight!)
- Cream of Chicken Soup
I have never made my own creamed soup, but I am now a believer. I ran across THIS recipe from Tammy's Recipes and thought I'd try it. There can be all sorts of "junk" in canned creamed soups, so I was eager to try this and it turned out great! So easy, so tasty! I wish I would have tried this a long time ago!
- I made one more Meatloaf, froze much more of the ground beef, and still have 5 more pounds in the fridge to do something with!!
So, all in all, a pretty accomplished day. I forgot to take a picture of the end result, but you get the idea!! I'm hoping these freezer cooking days are something I can keep up EVERY month!
Oh, yeah, and another little highlight from yesterday:
We have a 5 month old sitting up on her OWN!!
