This is a a quick casserole, especially if you have leftover chicken on hand. I found this in a church cookbook my grandmother gave to me. With a few modifications, I found this easy and delicious!

Ingredients

  • 2 (10.5 ounce) cans cream of chicken soup

  • 3 cups chopped cooked chicken, or more to taste

  • 1 cup finely chopped celery

  • 1 cup cornflakes cereal

  • 1 (8 ounce) can sliced water chestnuts, drained

  • ½ cup mayonnaise

  • ½ cup finely chopped onion

  • 1 cup cornflakes cereal

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted, or as needed

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Mix cream of chicken soup, cooked chicken, celery, 1 cup cornflakes, water chestnuts, mayonnaise, and onion together in a large bowl; spread mixture into a 9x13-inch casserole dish.

  3. Mix 1 cup cornflakes and melted butter together in a bowl until coated; sprinkle over casserole.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is bubbling and topping is crisp, about 45 minutes.

Cook's Note:

I used Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds(R) cereal instead of cornflakes. I also tripled the chopped celery instead of using a can of water chestnuts. I used reduced fat cream of chicken soup and Hellman's(R) lowfat mayo. I used leftover chicken from a rotisserie I had purchased earlier in the week. Delicious!
