Chicken Church Casserole Recipe
20 cups cubed cooked chicken
1 package (2 pounds) elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
6 jars (6 ounces each) sliced mushrooms, drained
2 jars (4 ounces each) diced pimientos, drained
2 large onions, chopped
2 large green peppers, chopped
4 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) condensed cream of celery soup, undiluted
4 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
2 pounds process cheese (Velveeta), cubed
1-1/3 cups milk
4 teaspoons dried basil
2 teaspoons lemon-pepper seasoning
2 cups crushed cornflakes
1/4 cup butter, melted
In several large bowls, combine the chicken, macaroni, mushrooms, pimientos, onions and peppers. In another large bowl, combine the soups, cheese, milk, basil and lemon-pepper; add to chicken mixture.
Place about 12 cups mixture in each of four greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dishes. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Combine cornflakes and butter; sprinkle over the casseroles. Cover and bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake 15-20 minutes longer or until bubbly. Yield: 4 casseroles (12 servings each). This recipe is from Taste of Home recipes, and it is a hit at all church functions.
