How to cook the chicken for this casserole
Don’t have leftover chicken you can use, you can simply simmer 3 or 4 chicken breasts in a pot of salted water for about 20 minutes. I love to remove them from the pot, let them cook for a bit and then shred them in my mixer. In fact, you can mix the whole casserole up in your mixer bowl.

Who doesn’t love a recipe that you can customize? You can swap out the cream of mushroom soup for cream of chicken, or even cream of Cheddar cheese soup. Love cheese crackers? You can make that swap as well. If you like you could even add in some frozen peas for some variety.
