Tonight, I was lazy and did not want to cook. I was even willing to go to the store to just buy some instant noodles. (BAD!) But then realized that we had some leftover chicken that was used from making chicken bbq sandwiches. It’s just chicken meat, bbq sauce and buns. Yeah easy.
So I decided to make chicken casserole. I had all the ingredients the recipe called for and then some. I added asparagus to it. I loved how it gave extra texture to the dish since it still had a little bit of crunch in it even after it was baked.
I skipped the butter and added onion soup mix. I used 3 cups of egg noodles, about 2 cups of chicken meat, plus 3/4 cup of chicken stock, used half and half instead of milk, and lastly 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese. Add more stock depending on how saucy you want it. Don’t salt it anymore, it was salty enough.
I realize that I have been doing a lot of food postings. I want you guys to know that I don’t just cook and eat all the time after I get off from work. I workout a lot. Just this week, I went to the gym 3 times. Ran for 40 minutes on Saturday then went hiking on Sunday. I love eating but one has to balance it out with working out and being fit. I know this recipe is not a healthy one but we don’t eat it all the time. I’d make this like 3 times a year. I don’t even remember the last time we made chicken casserole.
So yeah, eat (don’t stuff yourselves) and workout. Oh and stay away from fast food. It’s the healthy way to go.
