  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the chicken until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and set aside.
  3. Toss the bread pieces, Cheddar cheese, and 1/4 cup melted butter together in a bowl; spread about half of the mixture into the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish. Layer the peas and chicken atop the bread layer.
  4. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a saucepan over medium heat; stir the flour, milk, salt, and pepper into the melted butter. Cook and stir the sauce until smooth and thick, 5 to 7 minutes. Pour over the casserole. Top with the remaining bread mixture.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the top begins to brown, 30 to 40 minutes.

Fairly quick & easy, all common ingredients, could use a lil spicing up though. The flavours are simple and bland.

Very good! I only had 2 c. milk so I used 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup mayonaisse to make up the called for 3 cups. I think this added just the right amount of "zing".

This was good. My boyfriend didn't like the texture. Too soggy. But overall it wasn't bad.

I really liked this recipe alot. My boyfriend did as well but he made a good suggestion. There is an awful lot of cream sauce and not much with it. So we thought if we made some egg noodles to ...

Very quick, for me! I had frozen chicken I cooked last week ready, frozen green beans(not pea fans around here) and frozen rolls from last week. I had everything ready in the time it took to p...

I halved the recipe and baked in a 9x9" pan. I used rosemary bread and added chopped onions to the cream sauce. I think without the rosemary and the onions, it would have been very bland. DH ...

I used a bag of baguette slices for the bread, used my own white sauce recipe, skipped the peas, and served green beans on the side. DELICIOUS!
