Homemade "Chicken Helper" Casserole

I posted a recipe for Mish-Mash Casserole (thank you Elektra Q-Tion for the name) and had 1 extra chicken breast in the fridge, so I decided to make a homemade version of Chicken Helper. This is related to my post about Homemade "Hamburger Helper" Casserole. The recipe is as follows:

  • 1 cooked chicken breast
  • 1 cup elbow macaroni
  • 1 can Campbell's Condensed Creme of Chicken soup
  • 1 can veggies (sweet peas, corn, or mixed), drained and rinsed.
  • 4 oz. of a package of shredded cheese (your choice of flavor)
  • Old Bay Seasoning (your choice of amount)
  • Tortillas (see comments at the very bottom)
  1. Boil the water, and make the macaroni according to the instructions on the box.
  2. If the chicken breast needs cooked, boil it for 20 minutes.
  3. Preheat the toaster oven to 375 F and oil an 8x6x2 Pyrex casserole dish.
  4. While draining the macaroni in a colander, pour the soup into the stockpot you used.
  5. Sprinkle as much Old Bay seasoning into the soup for the taste you want.
  6. Return the macaroni to the stockpot with soup.
  7. Cut the chicken breast into bite sized pieces, and put it into the stockpot too.
  8. Add the can of selected veggies.
  9. Stir well.
  10. Pour that mixture into the 8x6x2 Pyrex casserole dish and even it out.
  11. Place that in the toaster oven for 20 mins.
  12. Slide the dish out (using oven mitts) and cover it evenly with the shredded cheese.
  13. Return it to the toaster oven, and bake for another 8 minutes.
You would have enough to serve at least 5 people with this, but that also means you have enough leftovers if it is just you. It is easy to make, and tastes great. You could use any other seasonings/herbs based on your choice, but this is AWESOME! Another suggestion is to put a few leaves of lettuce on a tortilla, scoop the mixture onto it, roll it up, and ENJOY.
