Earlier this summer I had posted about canning chicken thighs and promised to share some of our favorite recipes to use with the canned chicken. Well this is our number one hit. The boys especially love this dish!
The best part is that it’s seriously simple to put together! (note that at the bottom of the post there’s a printable recipe link)
All you need is this…
And here is the recipe…
2 cups cooked chicken
2 cans cream of chicken soup (I have substituted with cream of mushroom, or one of each)
2 cups milk
¼ cup chopped onion (optional)
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoon melted butter (optional)
2 cups uncooked macaroni
Velveeta cheese (or any cheese)
Mix together everything but the Velveeta cheese. Put in a casserole dish and top with slices of Velveeta cheese.
Refrigerate overnight. (I don’t always do this, but like to refrigerate a few hours at least.. it will soften the macaronis)
Bake covered at 350° for 1 to 1 ½ hours.
