    These are two that I enjoy. The first is the tuna casserole I made for the Christmas party. Even if you didn\’t like it, other people might :).-The Landry Tuna Casserole1 can of white tuna in water1 can cream of mushroom soup1 tbsp finely chopped onionpinch of salt and pepperabout 1/2 cup crushed potato chips3/4 cup of milk3/4 cup frozen or canned peasserve with rice drain and flake tune in medium bowlAdd onion, salt and pepper and soupmix well and add crushed chips and milk. Add peas. Put in buttered casserole. You can sprinkle a few chips on the top.Cover and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes until bubbly.The second is called Chicken Devine. My friend Katie sent it to me. For a person who likes curry, its delish.2 good sized chicken breasts1 head of broccoli1 can of cream of chicken soup (less sodium is better!)1 can of mayonase (just put the mayo in the soup can when its empty!)a bunch of curry. Usually I just put in like.. a heaping pile. A tablespoon or so?Cheese! Rice, too. Bake chicken until done. Usually I don\’t even season it.. just bake it. Cut up broccoli in bite size pieces and steam until done (not mushy though)Cut up chicken in bite sized pieces and spread out on the bottom of a caserole dish with broccoli. Mix together in bowl the soup, mayo and curry. Pour over chicken in an even layer. Grate cheese and layer on top. Bake at about 350 or so for about 20 mins or until cheese is bubbly and hot. Serve over rice!From my kitchen, to yours.
