Cashew Chicken Casserole

This post contains affiliate links.
I enjoy casseroles, I admit it. I enjoy the fact that all of the ingredients can be put together and enjoyed as one. I enjoy that there is relatively little work, I enjoy the fact that they can be made in one or multiple servings and frozen for later. I just like the ease. I also like the taste, particularly in this case. I found this recipe on the Instagram feed of Patti of the Pandora’s Box blog. I altered it slightly to suit my tastes, and was very pleased with the outcome. It isn’t fancy, but it is good. The next time I make it I plan on adding a small can of sliced water chestnuts. If you like the crunch of water chestnuts, you may want to do the same.
Cashew Chicken Casserole

Melissa’s shallots
1 c. chopped celery

1 c. sliced mushrooms
1 T. butter
1 clove garlic, minced 
1 can cream of celery soup

3 drops Tabasco sauce
Freshly ground black pepper
2 c. cooked, diced chicken
1 3-oz. can
La Choy Chinese noodles
½ c. cashews

1½-qt. casserole dish with PAM; set aside.

So glad you enjoyed it...I always change recipes for my taste, too, and like your idea of water chestnuts!!

We love those Chinese noodles! Mom used to make a ground beef/mushroom soup concoction and serve over those noodles. My cousin called it"Chinese Goodles". Chicken and cashews sound really good, and yes on the water chestnuts.

I used to make something like this with tuna - Hubby asked me to lose the recipe. So...I think using chicken may meet with his approval and I may give it another go!
