I really don’t like being a picky eater, but I am. Yes, it’s true… I can’t stand onions. They gross me out. BUT, having said that I actually like french fried onions… maybe because they’re breaded and fried makes them okay. Not sure just yet, but all I do know is that I can eat them (and LIKE them) without gagging like regular onions. 😉
This next recipe I’m sharing is topped off with those delicious french fried onions and filled with all sorts of goodness like chicken, cheese, sour cream, mayo and almonds. It is DELICIOUS!
The best thing about this French Onion Chicken Casserole is that it takes little prep time. Literally, it takes about 5 minutes to throw together if your chicken is already made. You can buy cooked, chopped chicken, but I like to bake my chicken earlier in the morning. I usually line a cookie sheet with foil, add some chicken breast and drizzle a little bit of olive oil and lemon pepper. I cook at 400 degrees for 35-45 minutes (depending on the thickness of the chicken breast). I let it cool and then chop it up real quick. Although it takes awhile to bake, it really only takes about 5 minutes of prep work. Add that with the 5 minutes it takes to put this casserole together and you’re looking at about 10 minutes of work.
Can’t beat that!
If you’re looking for another delicious and simple casserole to try out, be sure to give this one a try. 🙂
Here is the recipe for this French Onion Chicken Casserole:
- 3 cups Chopped cooked chicken
- 1 cup chopped celery (or french style green beans)
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup mayo
- 1 can cream of chicken
- ½ cup slivered almonds
- 1 6 oz French's fried onions
- Preheat oven to 350 and coat a 9x13 baking dish
- In large bowl, stir celery, cheese, sour cream, mayo and cream of chicken. Add chicken and almonds. Spoon into dish.
- Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Sprinkle fried onion and cook another 5 minutes. Let stand 5-10 minutes. Enjoy!
We used celery for this recipe, but I think I’ll try French Style Green Beans when I make it next. I think even broccoli would be a great addition!
