For those of you who are not from the great state of Minnesota, a hotdish (one word) is a casserole. Pretty much if you add a “cream of something” to it, it is a hotdish. It is Minnesota comfort food at its finest.
The other day I had some left over chicken and I was craving a good ol’ Minnesota hotdish. I looked in my pantry, took out what I thought would work and came up with this dish. It is similar to chicken delight.
Chicken and Green Bean Hotdish
- Two cups cooked and chopped Zweber Farms chicken
- 1 can cream of chicken soup
- 1 can cream of celery soup
- 3 cups croutons or crunchy bread
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 cup fresh (or frozen and thawed) green beans
Grease a 9 x13 baking dish with butter. Spread chicken on bottom of the dish. Top with green beans
Mix milk, soups and croutons. Spread soup mixture on top of green beans.
Bake uncovered for 45 minutes at 350 degrees. To crunch up the croutons, place the dish under the broiler for a few minutes (watch carefully!!).
Tim and I loved this dish. The boys on the other hand didn’t. They are on an anti-grean bean kick, so their vote doesn’t count.
What is your favorite hotdish (umm casserole)?
