Two words: yummy, easy!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cups cubed skinless, boneless chicken
  • 4 cups torn bread pieces
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 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. 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. 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. 5 Bake in the preheated oven until the top begins to brown, 30 to 40 minutes.

  2. 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".

  4. Tried this tonight after reading through the directions I tweeked it a tad by using up some baguette slices I had toasted and frozen. I cubed them up after defrosting and I used frozen spinach (thawed/drained). I did add additional spices as other reviews suggested. I found the ratio of butter to flour far to - Read more ...
  5. This was good. My boyfriend didn't like the texture. Too soggy. But overall it wasn't bad.
  6. 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 add with it it would be delicious. I will try that next time. But the - Read more ...
