King ranch chicken casserole is a delicious example of comfort food. Read on for an easy, fun recipe that anyone can make at home.
I love casseroles.
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.
Making dinner for four boys (two of them teenagers!) every night of the week is no easy feat, so easy dinners are important in this house.
Between practices, lessons, team parties and homework, it's a wonder I have time to blog, if I'm honest with you.
It's a quick and inexpensive way to save some time. But certainly you can cook your own chicken... I won't judge either way!
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.
I know a lot of people feel the same way about green bean casserole. If it doesn't have the red can, they don't want it!
Well, I can say now that I kinda get it. You want what your mama made, and if mama made it with condensed soup, making it from scratch ingredients is simply not going to bring back the same taste and memories.
It's okay. Sometimes memories are more important than whether or not the dang sauce was made from scratch.
So here's one of my favorite comfort foods, condensed soup and all. It's a recipe only slightly altered from my mom's own recipe box.
