Easy Chicken Casserole Recipe

Here's Grandma's easy chicken casserole recipe,  a wonderful old fashioned recipe that produces a lovely browned chicken with a thick wholesome sauce.

I make this a healthy recipe by using very little if any oil at all and substitute cream and flour with Lite cream cheese.

These are casserole dishes - they're oven proof and come in various sizes. My family prefers the Corningware brand of oven-proof dishes.

Serve piping hot with fluffy white rice and just steamed greens like snow peas or broccoli.  Greens are best when they are only "just" cooked and they retain a little crunch.
