Miss Era Dell's Chicken Casserole

I have to share this recipe with my readers - it's super easy and super yummy...
and I want you all to have it for your files!

A little history of this recipe...Miss Era Dell sat in front of my grandparents at their church for as long as I can remember. And whenever they had a potluck, Miss Era Dell always brought her chicken casserole.

When I got married, all the ladies at the church threw me a recipe shower. My Granny gave me a recipe book filled with all of their favorite recipes. It's one of the best gifts I have ever received...and if our house should ever catch on fire, it's one of the many things I would grab!

Miss Era Dell has since passed away, and I always tell people, when I get to Heaven, I am going to find her and tell her THANK YOU for her recipe! It's one of B's favorites, and I like to cook it when he's had a busy or tough week at work as a way to say "I appreciate everything you do!"

Anyways, here's the recipe...I hope you will make it and LOVE it as much as we do!

And if you have a recipe that's super special, let me know about it!

Miss Era Dell's Chicken Casserole

  1. That's almost identical to everyone's favorite poppyseed chicken. We eat it over rice. Such a good comfort food.

  2. YUM! So simple. This sounds like a great casserole to take to families with new babies. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Chicken Casserole is my husband's favorite food! :-) We have a standby recipe that he loves, but I can't wait to try this one! It sounds simple and delicious! I LOVE sharing recipes - thanks for sharing this one (and the story that goes with it that makes it even more special)! :-)
