“The original recipe came from my Aunt Debbie, and it used ham. I use canned chicken for convenience, but you could use any leftover cooked chicken. The french fried onions are what makes you go back for another bowl, use more or less to suit your taste! Use whole wheat noodles to make it a lil' healthier. I also like to coat my casserole dish with cooking spray to make clean up easier. This is a great dish for potlucks too.”
