Grandmother’s Chicken Casserole

I loved to visit my Grandmother’s house in the afternoons to help her prepare dinner. A treasured heirloom of mine is the handwritten notebook she made for me as a wedding gift containing her favorite recipes.

I am sharing with you her Chicken Casserole.

Grandmother was a true southern lady who took care of her family with delicious food and was quick to share a meal with those in the community and church who were sick, welcomed a baby, or just needed some help. This was one of the meals that she shared quiet often. Her chicken casserole recipe is easy to prepare, easy to travel, and easy to freeze.

On top of all that… it’s delicious!

No wonder everyone loved my Grandmother so much!
