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. 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:
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!
