I love casseroles.
Honestly, nothing screams cozy better than a dish baked in a 9x13, covered in cheese and served on its own. Forgive me, I am a child of the 80's, when condensed soup reigned supreme.
King Ranch Chicken was a huge favorite of mine growing up. My mom only made it occasionally, but for some reason it made an impact on me. I have cooked it for my family many times, trying different variations along the way.
When life is really crazy, and I need a short cut to dinner, I buy a rotisserie chicken from the supermarket and shred it to make this casserole. It's a quick and inexpensive way to save some time. But certainly you can cook your own chicken... I won't judge!
Once, when I was feeling a bit fancy, I decided that I would forgo the condensed soup and make the whole casserole from scratch. I have to say, it wasn't the same.
So here's one of my favorite cozy foods, condensed soup and all. It's a recipe only slightly altered from my mom's own recipe box.
