Mushroom Swiss Chicken Casserole

One of my favorite dishes my sweet Momma makes is her Chicken casserole. It is loved and craved by so many folks. Like I have always said, food is a catalyst for memories. It also has healing powers. When we are sick or upset, we can long for nostalgic foods and smells of foods that remind us of fond times.

Chicken casserole is one of those types of food for me. When testing this recipe, I had a difficult time thinking about how I could make something already so good, better or different. Then along came mushrooms sautéed in butter. And what goes good with mushrooms? Swiss cheese. I get all googly eyed and drooly when I think of this combo.

Taking traditional recipes and breathing new life into them is something I love to do, just like this Roasted Vegetable Casserole. So here we take a classic casserole recipe and make it over the top delicious!

This is one of those casseroles you can totally prep for ahead of time. I like to cook my chicken in my trusty Mealthy Pot and sauté my mushrooms early so I can mix this beauty up and have it whenever I am ready for it. It really is as easy as it seems.

  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 & 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Swiss cheese, shredded

~ Method ~

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large mixing bowl, mix sour cream, cream of chicken soup, water, paprika, onion powder, salt and pepper. Add in shredded chicken and sautéed mushrooms. Mix well. Fold in cheese.
  2. Pour in a slightly greased 9 x 13 casserole dish. Cover and bake 30 minutes.
  3. Uncover and bake another 10 minutes until the top is browned and bubbly. Enjoy!

The power of a great casserole

I have said it before and I am sure I will say it many more times. There just isn’t a better gift than food. When we have people in our lives who are celebrating the birth of a new baby or adoption or are mourning the loss of a loved one, food is a powerful tool in lending a helping hand. We are charged while we are on this earth to give to and love others. What better way to do it than with food gifting.

Not only are you giving a delicious meal to help out others in their time of need, you are giving of your talent, your time and your love to those in need. I really can’t think of a better way to serve our Heavenly Father than by loving folks by feeding them. I know that during almost every major milestone life event, people have done the same for me. it is so nice to pay that kindness and love forward.

    Made this for dinner tonight! It was wonderful. The only thing I changed was a little less sour cream just because I’m not a sour cream fan and some buttery cracker topping. 😊 Thank you for a great recipe. Putting it on our dinner routine.
