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

I decided to try this recipe because I happened to have cooked chicken, 3 cups of leftover white sauce (same recipe, but flavored with 2 chicken bouillon cubes), and a day-old loaf of french bread on hand, all which needed to be used up. I was out of cheddar cheese, though, and used shredded parmesan instead. I ended up using about 6 cups of bread with about 5 tablespoons of butter and 1/2 cup parmesan cheese (I wanted more bread on top). It smelled wonderful baking, and tasted just as good. I think the toasty topping really added a lot--I would definitely recommend french bread. My husband and kids thought it was good, but the kids don't like peas, so I'm not going to hold that against the recipe. Very palatable!

We live in Vietnam, the ingredients we had on hand (the cheese is imported). Its a simple recipe and my family loved it! THANKS! it saved dinner!



Fairly quick & easy, all common ingredients, could use a lil spicing up though. The flavours are simple and bland.
