Chicken Zucchini Casserole

I grew up with my mom making a Zucchini Casserole as the vegetable side dish. Like many of our family favorite dishes Joseph and I discussed how we could make it better. As we made various changes we would discuss what we liked as well as how we could continue to improve upon it until we came up with this recipe.

Ingredients

1 cup Diced Onions
1 cup Shredded Carrots
1 T Minced Garlic
2 T Butter
2 cups Cooked Cubed Chicken (I have used grilled, smoked, and pan fried)
2 – 10 oz Cans of Cream of Chicken Soup
1 cup Sour Cream
2 cups Cubed Zucchini
2 cups Yellow Squash
1 bags Cheese Croutons
1-2 cups Shredded Cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degree. Melt butter in skillet over medium high heat. Once the color starts to brown add in onions, carrots, and garlic. Cook until the onions are translucent.  Pour into a 9X13 Casserole dish. Stir in zucchini and yellow squash. Stir in chicken, soup and sour cream. Top with croutons. Bake for 25 minutes. Top with cheese and continue baking for 5 minutes.

Variations:

  • 4 cups Zucchini rather than 2 cup Zucchini and 2 cups Yellow Squash
  • Stir Croutons in to the mixture.
  • Add cheese prior to topping with croutons and bake for 30 minutes.
