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!

  • 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.

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

  • 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!

good recipe I made it according to the recipe except I used cream of mushroom with garlic diced water chestnuts and less onion(2 TBS). Great for using ingredients that are always on hand. Not so good reheated but great straight from the oven when it's crispy. Had this recipe once at a potluck and have been searching for it. Thanks for posting it. Read More

This was a good basic chicken casserole. Easy to make I did not make any changes but would try it in the future with some vegetables such as broccoli or asparagus. Read More

I made this with a few minor changes ( which I always do) the water chestnuts I cut up next time I'll look for diced. I omitted the cornflakes inside the casserole and used Spatzle noodles I added 2 cans of French fried onions ( omitting the regular onions) 8 ounces of cream cheese and I seasoned it with garlic powder and Goya adobo I also added some almond milk to thin it out while cooking I used cornflake crumbs mixed with butter for the top. It was delicious my husband loved it and he's not usually a fan of casseroles! This is getting put into my regular meal menu! Read More

I will definitely make it again. This time I made a half recipe for my elderly mother and her sitter. They enjoyed it very much. I will add water chestnuts next time. Read More

I had to substitute one can of condensed cheese soup for one cream of chicken soup. Delicious! Frozen leftovers make good lunches. Read More
