Amish Chicken Casserole

 

Nothing better than a good old Amish Chicken Casserole for dinner ! Add a salad or two on the side and you are set. Or vegetables .. however the weather permits.


I found a recipe some time ago, here, which I wanted to try soon. However, I have so many recipes on my to-try-list that I rarely ever get to make them.

My family is actually quite set on certain dishes, and usually request one of our older family favorites, long before I can decide which new recipe to try. Therefore, whenever I have no requests, I go to my list as mentioned before.

What a hit with the family !

I adapted the original recipe I found a bit, but it was still a HUGE hit with my family ! And truly, this Amish Chicken casserole will be made over and over again in our house.

My daughter and her fiance are also curious about the casserole we all raved over, and I decided I will make it again this weekend when they come over for dinner on Sunday.

I can already say, with full confidence, that they will love it !

Unbelievable how such a simple, everyday ingredient filled, recipe can turn out to be so tasty. Well, tasty is an understatement for this casserole – it is totally amazing !

One thing to keep in mind though, take care with the final seasoning, as the Chicken Spice and the Stock already adds a lot of saltiness to the dish.

I almost made the mistake of just sprinkling over Salt and Pepper, but fortunately tasted first.

Therefore I ended up hardly adding any additional seasoning. (A reminder in the Instruction step number 6 … just in case ? )

Do you mean Poultry seasoning? I'm not familiar with chicken spice?

Marina, I Googled Poultry seasoning but it seems to be a very strong seasoning (I could be wrong as we do not have that in SA), the spice I use adds only a touch of extra flavor to the overall taste of the casserole :)

What is "Chicken Spice?" I want to make this immediately- it looks SO good- but I don't know what that is. Thanks, in advance!

It is a spice specifically to give chicken a bit more flavor (besides salt), and is usually available in the supermarket's aisle with the spices and herbs, but if you can not find it, plain salt and a dash of black pepper will do just fine :-) Hope this helps !
