“My mom was going to make Tuna Noodle Casserole but found that she didn't have any canned tuna, so she made it using canned chicken instead. I liked it so much that when I made it I embellished a little adding french fried onions and shredded cheddar cheese to it. Very Yummy! * You can substitute cream of chicken soup for the cream of mushroom soup if desired. * Suggestions: you can also add crumbled bacon, crumbled Ritz crackers as a topping, or other veggies to your own liking”
