TGFP....... thank goodness for PINTEREST

While off on maternity leave I decided to step it up in the kitchen. I'm working on the whole housewife role. In 2016 B.B (before baby) my husband did the majority of the cooking. Not because I CAN'T cook or because I don't like too. It was mostly because....well, he would. And who am I to stop him from doing something he CLEARLY enjoys.

But since I've been off I've stepped up and started cooking dinner more often. Maybe I can casserole him into thinking it's financial possible for me to stay home full time. There's power in the casserole. Who doesn't love a good CASSEROLE. Casseroles could bring peace to the Middle East so why couldn't it convince a husband we won't end up homeless, which we TOTALLY would. 

I used PINTEREST to find some casseroles....I also used PINTEREST OG ( cookbooks and magazines) to find some new meals. On Pinterest I found the yum yum chicken recipe. I liked it right away it was easy.....and made up of only a few things. SCORE. Less stuff for me to mess up. Better chance that it won't SUCK.  It was pretty good. Well, it wasn't a fail for sure. It called for sour cream but I omitted that because my husband has a strong aversion to sour cream. My stuffing topping didn't get soft and was more crunchy, but it was good. Good enough for my husband to eat it but it wasn't the mind changing casserole I was looking for. So the casserole search continues... Thank goodness for the never ending supply on Pinterest. 

Yum Yum Chicken
serves 6-8
(Printable Recipe)
  • 1 to 1 ½ lb. chicken, cooked and cut up (I shredded one rotisserie chicken)
  • 8oz sour cream
  • 1 can Cream of Chicken soup
  • 1 can Cream of Celery soup
  • 1 box Cornbread stuffing, uncooked (Stove Top)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 stick melted butter

Preheat oven to 350.

In 9x13 baking dish, lay chicken in the bottom of the dish.  In separate bowl, mix together the cream of chicken soup, cream of celery soup and sour cream. Spread over the chicken.

Sprinkle the uncooked stuffing over the soup mixture, (note: if herb packet is not mixed with stuffing mixture, top stuffing with herb packet).  Mix together the broth and the melted butter and pour evenly over all.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

That looks good! I wonder if you could make it in the crockpot? With working, the crockpot is my best friend. My hubby likes casseroles too. Shepherd's pie is his favorite when it comes to casserole type dishes.

There's a good quesadilla casserole I found on Pinterest and put on my blog:

Every Pinterest recipe I have tried has sucked royally. After the last one, Ryan said, "It's OK, Mom. I like spaghetti," which was my cue to stick to what I know. I don't know why I can't master even the simple ones! I think there's some evil Pinterest conspiracy to, like, leave out key ingredients on all the recipes I pin!

TGFP is right! This looks scrumptious. I am constantly grabbing recipes from Pinterest too. :)
