Ingredients

  • 6 chicken breasts, diced
  • 1 can/small box (15 ounces) organic cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup

  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed or ground chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×13 casserole pan with cooking spray.
  2. Spread diced chicken over the bottom of the pan.
  3. Top chicken with cream soup evenly.
  4. Sprinkle cheese evenly over the casserole.

  6. Bake uncovered for 40-45 minutes or until chicken is done (white throughout) and corners are bubbly.

Notes

Freezer Meal Instructions:
Put casserole together and freeze it before baking. When you’re ready to cook it, let thaw in the fridge over night. If it’s still slightly frozen in the middle, you’ll just have to cook it longer than the recipe calls for or defrost a bit in the microwave before baking. Cover it with foil if the top gets too brown in the oven.
