Creamy Chicken, Mushrooms, and Vegetable Casserole
Most folks have their favs when it comes to the casserole. Sometimes its what Mom made on a weekly basis or perhaps only on special occasions or holidays.
Who remembers the Creamy Chicken, Mushroom, and Vegetable Casserole?
One of my favorites, I’m not sure what name it went by, but the key was a combination of cream of mushroom soup mixed with sour cream. Double delicious!
The triple dip included a few splashes of sherry in the combination!
This casserole was often lined with bread cubes which soaked through flavoring the sensational flavored triple dip. Broccoli or spinach were possible vegetable components as well.
Not only creamy and delicious, whichever way you mix it the preparation is all out so darn easy!
