Chicken & Vegetable Casserole


My Mom makes a really good chicken casserole that I love. We always have it with rice, English peas and rolls. I was really craving it but wanted to try a healthier version. I added vegetables into the casserole to make it more filling without the need for rolls and rice. I also swapped the sour cream for plain Greek yogurt. The yogurt gives it a more tangy tart taste but it is not overwhelming.

Trey was here this weekend and tried it. He said he could taste the yogurt but really liked it. So it is boyfriend approved!


  1. This really looks like comfort food! Something mom would make :) My mom told me she was cooking chicken n dumplings tonight-that was always our comfort food growing up.

    1. I was feeling a cold coming on so what better to cook than comfort food. It definitely made me feel better or maybe that was the cold medicine I took... Either way it hit the spot! My Granny used to make chicken and dumplings when we spent the night at her house. I don't think I have eaten them in years.
