This is a very, very good chicken casserole, probably one of my favorites. It takes a little more time to make, but it is soooo good when it's done! I haven't done a price breakdown, but it can't cost too much to make, and it makes a whole 9x13 FULL.
Showalter's Chicken Casserole
1 lg. hen, cooked and picked from bone
1 1/2 cups diced celery
1 small onion, diced
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
4 cups chicken broth (use from cooking chicken)
2 eggs, beaten
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
4 cups crushed crackers (I use whatever kind I have)
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
In 9x13 baking dish (the deeper the better) layer: chicken, onion, celery and crackers (may divide each in 1/2 to repeat layers if desired).
Sprinkle cheese on top of casserole.
Combine eggs, broth, mushroom soup, salt and pepper. Pour over casserole. Bake at 350°F for 1 hour.
