Cashew Chicken Casserole
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 35 min.
Really enjoyed this. Made it the night before and took to the station with me the next day. No leftovers.....
Well, I planned to make this but didn't realize that this was an overnight dish. No problem. I just cooked the macaroni and threw most everything in a pan and placed it it the oven. This way I could control the amount of liquid I put into the casserole so it was not overly soupy. Family enjoyed it.
This looks just like a casserole my grandmother used to make. (in the late 60's) One of my favorites! My family doesn't like nuts very much so sadly I usually leave them out. The cashews are my favorite part. Think I will be making this again soon.
I love this recipe and have made it many times. Instead of the saltine crackers, I crush up Cheez-Its and put them on top. I have also used cream of celery soup instead of the mushroom soup. Good leftover as well.
I followed this recipe to the letter and it turned out really runny even after being refrigerated over 24 hrs. Next time I will boil the macaroni in the chicken broth ahead of time but not add the broth to the recipe, just the milk. If it still turns out runny I'll give up. The overall taste is delicious, although I would use shredded cheddar next time instead of velveeta. I also liked the idea of adding peppers for a bit more taste.
I was wondering if you could use rice instead of macaroni
Good stuff and I will make this again!
This is the number one requested dish by my family. I generally make it with homegrown, organic, gluten free and as low sodium ingredients as possible. It is absolutely delicious!! Enjoy!

I've made this many times over the past 5 years or so. I've never had time to let it set overnight, so I boil the macaroni in the chicken broth, and add only 1/4 cup chicken broth to the dish. Very very good and have made it several times for company. Also I usually don't have velveeta, so i just add some shredded chedder, about 8 oz of it. The more cheese the better! :)
