The first step in so many creamy casseroles is opening a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup, right? Well not today! I’m going to show you how to make a completely from-scratch casserole in less than 40 minutes. And did I mention you’ll be making good use of leftovers, too? Yep, this recipe is a keeper!
Sarah’s Tip of the Day:
First you make your own creamy, mushroom-y base with a bit of oil, mushrooms, shallots, flour, chicken broth, and sour cream. That’s mixed with some classic casserole ingredients: frozen peas, leftover chicken, cooked rice, and parsley. Transfer it to a casserole dish, and top with breadcrumbs before baking, and you’ve got a chicken casserole for dinner! Watch the video and you’ll see how the flour makes the sauce extra creamy.
