End of Budget Month Quick Casserole

Slave will get back to more on the Master's Banquet in a bit. First with it being the end of the month (or at least the budget for the month), slave thought here's a casserole you can throw together that is stupid easy and crazy good!

You might even have some of these ingredients in your pantry.


1 lbs of Chicken marked “breast tenderloins”
¼ package of any pasta (slave had “campanelle”)
1 12oz package frozen mixed vegetables
1 can condensed Cream of Chicken soup
milk to fill ½ of the soup can

Pre heat oven to 350.
Spray the casserole dish.
Notice that slave just drops the dishwasher door, sets the dish on that and sprays. That way, no slick spot on the floor and the inside of door is automatically washed when the dishes get done. If no dishwasher, do in in the sink where YOU wash the dishes!

Heat the water for pasta with a lid on the pot. It will come to a boil much quicker that way.

The pasta cooks for 10 minutes so when boiling, add the pasta and set timer for 5 minutes! When water comes back to boiling, turn the heat down a bit. The water isn't going to get any hotter until it is all turned into steam!
Then when the timer goes off stir in the frozen vegetables, and reset the timer for 7 minutes (it will take 2 or 3 minutes to return to a boil)

While that is going, heat oil in a medium high skillet for the chicken.
While that heats, slave sprinkles salt and seasoning on the chicken.

The chicken will fry for about 3 – 4 minutes per side. Then remove to paper towel lined plate and cut into bit sized pieces.

In a large bowl mix the condensed soup with milk and stir in the chicken chunks. Mix well.

Drain the vegetable – pasta mix and stir that into the bowl.

When well mixed add to casserole and heat in oven for about 20 to 25 minutes. Everything is already cooked, you are just heating it through to blend flavors.

If you have a tube of biscuits, through them in the oven or even crescent rolls.

Set table and serve this one dish meal! What a surprisingly tasty way to stretch the budget.

Any left over can be stretched easily by cooking another small batch of pasta and adding another can of soup. Or even topping with shredded cheese. So when the remains are cooled, spoon into a zipper freezer bag and be sure to thaw when ready to use.

Master likes it when slave saves money as long as He gets a great meal. Master happy means slave happy
