Edmonton Chicken

Edmonton Chicken

This is such a simple meal to put together.  It is a casserole dish that is packed with flavor.  I’m not sure why it’s called Edmonton Chicken but I assume that it came from Edmonton at some point in time.  I have had this dish with chicken legs and chicken breast and I really prefer the flavor of the chicken legs.  The bones really add so much taste to a dish that you can not get in a packet.  So, if you were looking to make a stock or soup base always opt for the real deal go for the bones do not try to use a synthetic prepackaged packet and try to get the same flavor it just will not compare.

Ingredients and Directions for the Edmonton Chicken

1.  Ingredients

4 chicken breasts

4 slices Swiss or Mozzarella cheese

1 can of cream of chicken

1 can sliced water chestnuts, drained and juice saved

3/4 cup celery

1/2 cup chopped onion

2 cups stuffing (homemade or store bought)

1/8 cup melted butter

To Prepare:

2. Line a baking dish with tinfoil.  Mix soup and juice from water chestnuts.  Spoon some of this mixture around the bottom of the baking dish.

3. Place the chicken breasts on top of the soup mixture.

4. Place 1 slice of  Swiss or Mozzarella cheese on each piece of chicken.  Add the water chestnuts,  celery  & onion.

5. Pour the remaining soup mixture over all the chicken and vegetables.

6. Sprinkle the stuffing on top.  Drizzle 1/8 cup melted butter over the stuffing.  Cover with tinfoil.  Bake at 350 F  for 50 minutes or until done.  If you are using chicken legs they will take longer to cook.

Serve with mashed potatoes.

I really enjoy casserole dishes.  They are simple, require little time to put together and they are always flavorful.  The sauce that is leftover in the casserole dish is really tasty on top of your mashed potatoes.  You could easily turn this into a low calorie, low fat meal by using a low fat soup.
