How To Make Chicken And Potato Chip Casserole.
Chicken and Potato Chip Casserole chicken, rice and broccoli covered in melted cheese and crisp potato chips!
I know what you’re thinking? Another recipe for comfort food? It’s spring for goodness sakes. You’re right, somewhere it is spring. But here in Wisconsin, it’s not. We just had another winter storm last Friday! I will admit, the snow is slowly melting and it seems as if we may warm up a bit more this week, but I won’t believe it until I see it AND feel it.
We’re gearing up for another busy week ahead. I don’t know about you, but when it comes to dinner during the week, I need something quick. After I get off of work, I pick the kids up from daycare and head home. Here’s what our typical week night looks like.
When do I have time to blog everyone asks me. You know, I’m not quite sure. Many of my food photos actually need to be taken in the evening. Winter is a huge challenge because it’s dark by the time we get home. No natural light to be found. Most of the time when I do take my pictures the food is sitting right in front of me on the table ready to be eaten. I think I’ve mentioned before – I actually DO eat the food I post on the blog. If I prepared it, I’m eating it. If it’s really good, I post it. So when I say these recipes are tried and true, they really are.
This Chicken & Potato Chip Casserole isn’t the good dish in the world, but that may be why it tastes so darn good. It’s quick because it uses Rotisserie chicken.
I think the best part about this casserole is mixing all of the ingredients together in a bowl. You got some chicken, throw it in. You got some broccoli, throw it in. Once it’s mixed all together, transfer it to a lightly greased baking dish.
Then cover the mixture with shredded cheese and crushed potato chips! I ate the ones that fell off of the top, I’ll admit it. Did you notice this recipe doesn’t call for salt? You don’t need it. With the chips, rice, cheese and soups, there’s plenty. Trust me.
Chicken & Potato Chip Casserole
2 cups chopped, cooked chicken meat (I use Rotisserie)
1 (5.5 ounce) Rice Sides – Chicken Broccoli, prepared
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed Cream of Chicken & Mushroom soup
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed Cream of Celery soup
2 cups finely chopped broccoli florets
2 tablespoons minced onions
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
2 cups crushed potato chips
1/4 cup water
Garlic pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a large bowl combine the chicken, prepared rice, soup, minced onion, broccoli, lemon juice, water and pepper.
Spread the mixture into a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking pan.
Cover the mixture with cheese and then the crushed potato chips
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the potato chips are browned and the casserole is heated through.
