The recipe itself is written in simple step by step guidelines that are easy to follow. One common misconception about casseroles is that it takes a pretty experienced cook to make them perfectly; well, I believe that practice makes perfect and that the things you fear aren’t always scary at all. This amazing Chicken Casserole is a perfect example of that.
The first time I tried it, I was a little nervous because I had guests coming over for dinner on short notice. Really, I thought it was going to be a family taste-test session/ dinner thing but no…a really important family friend decided to stop by without much notice. Though we are pretty close friends, it was kind nerve-wracking having this person stop by on the one night I had my heart set on trying Sharon’s amazing Chicken Casserole for the first time.
Of course, I wouldn’t recommend Sharon’s amazing Chicken Casserole for a vegan or vegetarian – except you’re willing to substitute the “chicken” in the Chicken Casserole for veggies, remove the butter and look for other suitable soups – but you shouldn’t have any problem with the dish otherwise…except if you’re allergic to onions. Sharon’s Amazing Chicken Casserole has an estimated 675.7 calories, which a lot. If you’re on a weight-loss diet, this recipe wouldn’t fit in well unless you cut back or replace the aforementioned ingredients.
Regardless, I highly recommend Sharon’s amazing Chicken Casserole for all occasions and holidays.
