Crumb-topped chicken casserole has been a family favorite for many years. I always have guests pulling me to the side and asking for this melt-in-your-mouth recipe! When I serve this casserole, guests come hungry, but leave with full tummies and happy faces! Now, that’s my kind of a meal!
And if you’re a busy mom, you need to let casseroles become your best friend! Don’t argue…just listen. Casseroles free up your time and create very little mess in the kitchen. Just mix, bake and use the extra hands-free time to get other things done!
Casseroles are one of my busy mom hacks. I’m always trying to share a few minutes off here and there. Can I get a witness?!
How do I get delicious, hearty meals on the table in minutes?
Preparing and planning ahead are my best game plans. Chopping up veggies the night before, starting the crock-pot early in the morning or cooking and freezing a meal for later are all time-saving options to help you get food on the table — fast. And throwing a crazy-yummy casserole together? Yeah — that’s on the list too!
I don’t know about you, but I am not happy about feeding my kids fast food several times a week. I feel so much better when my kids are eating a real meal that I know is nutritious, healthy and doesn’t contain hidden, foreign ingredients.
I also love to have my home-made meals wrapped in family traditions. I know I can’t go wrong with a bread-crumb topping like my grandmother often used in her recipes. I have fond memories of seeing a huge container of butter or margarine sitting in her fridge. She would always add this to her special dishes she made for our family. Southern-baked macaroni pie, seasoned green beans, and garden fresh creamed corn always had this yummy ingredient. And today? I still re-create those special recipes in my own kitchen. And yes, I use butter!
Is it possible to have a dish smothered with tradition, love and flavor ready in minutes? Absolutely. And I’m sharing the easy-peasy recipe with you — plus there’s an easy video to follow to if you’re a visual learner! ;0)
Try this yummy recipe for your family tonight and see if you don’t start a tradition of your own! Remember, busy mom days don’t have to equal sandwiches, frozen pizza or fast food. With a little planning, flavor-filled meals can fill your family’s tummy as you discuss the day’s events.
