As always, my photos don't do these dee-lish recipes justice, so simply click HERE for Ree's recipe and lots of beautiful pictures!
But just to prove to you that I made it .... here you go:
This recipe has everything that is good ..... pasta, chicken ...... and cream of mushroom soup.
I have a theory: (Are you ready for this?)
If it contains cream of mushroom soup, it's delicious.
This casserole is comfort food at it's finest.
My family LOVES it.
Just ask Lucy .... :-)
Oh, and don't tell Ree .... but even though the real recipe calls for a whole cut up fryer to be boiled down, etc .... I just shredded some baked chicken breasts. (Or you could even use a rotisserie chicken!)
I know. I'm a rebel like that.
Actually, I just hate boiling whole chickens.
It kinda grosses me out.
I know, I know -- then I don't have the wonderful homemade stock .... but stock-in-a-box seems to work just fine at my house!
And hey, if boiling chickens is your thing ... by all means, have at it! :-)
Give me a holler if this is one of YOUR favorite Pioneer Woman recipes, too!
