1 lb (.45 kgs) no salt added all natural chicken breast or thigh with skin and bone removed cooked. (You'll need about 1 1/2 lbs (.68 kgs) raw boneless skinless to equal about 1 lb cooked.)
2 cans of Healthy Request Cream of Mushroom Soup
2 boxes of Lower Sodium Stovetop Stuffing
5 cups (1180 ml) of water
When you go into the soup aisle you are going to see all sorts of soup labeled reduced sodium even Campbells has a 25% Less Reduced Sodium Cream of Mushroom. If you read it though this one is lower if you find a lower one than this let me know! There is a ready to serve low sodium that is lower but it would be too thin for a casserole I think since it already has the water added. Or you could try it who knows it could be fabulous.
Also I promise I am not a corporate shill. It just so happens that these are the lowest sodium and I want you to be able to find them. If you find something lower in sodium that is the same give me a shout out. Or if you are from Kraft or Campbell's and need a corporate shill let's talk... just kidding... but you know, sort of not..
While you are patiently waiting for the chicken to cool, and totally not burning your fingers or poking it with a fork and a knife, measure out 3 cups of your really hot chicken brothy water.
I normally try to use lots of fresh veggies and such. This is a craving type food for me so I was tickled to find a way to make it that our family could enjoy it. Also there's no reason that you can't load up a big green salad to go on the side in fact that makes it even better. What this is, is a pretty quick and easy casserole and it's got that comfort food oomph to it without all the calories and salt. Also I am not responsible for burned fingertips or lost taste-buds. I clearly warned you and now you have to suffer with me.
One day out of the blue when I had children of my own my Gran just up and gave me a plate for each of them. I put them away at first, but when I told her that she said that she gave them to me for the kids to USE. She emphasized that word. So I let them eat off them and fight over them. Now they are grown. When the grandkids came to visit last I made sure to fix them a snack on the surviving plate. Things don't have to be expensive to be priceless. I hope you share a meal and a memory with your family.
