Chinese Chicken Casserole Surprise

"Chinese-style ingredients like almonds, water chestnuts, mushrooms, celery and chow mein noodles combine with a creamy broth, soup and milk mixture - and chicken, of course - to form this casserole. The name comes from the fact that people who have it seem to be pleasantly surprised and wonder what is in it. This is a good recipe for potlucks, etc., as it can be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated or frozen until ready to bake."

This recipe was really good. I browned the chicken in soy sauce, garlic, and ginger before adding it to the rest of the ingredients. I would suggest putting the chinese noodles on top of the casserole instead of mixed in. They stay crunchy that way.

My husband really liked this casserole. I thought it was just "ok". I did doctor up the recipe, because I like more vegetables in my casseroles. I added green pepper, onion, mushrooms, garlic, ginger. I also sauteed the chicken in soy sauce. I try to watch calories, and adding chow mein noodles adds a lot of fat. They just turned soggy anyway, so those extra calories weren't worth it.

I added a can of a mixture of baby corn, bean sprouts and bamboo shoots and since I couldn't find plain sliced almonds, I used the kind that were garlic ceasar flavored and we LOVED IT!!! I will be making this again.
