This is an old recipe that probably everyone has their own version of. I got this one from my Aunt Linda. She served it one New Years. You know it must have been good since I actually remember when I first had it. She is another amazing cook! So I am going to share with you the McNee version of this recipe. This is another favorite of my kids.
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 1/2 cup chicken broth or 1 1/2 cup water and 1 tsp. chicken boullion.
2 cups cooked chicken, diced
4 cups cooked rice
1 cup chopped celery
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 can pineapple tidbits, drained
2-3 tomatoes, choppped
1 can chow mein noodles (I buy the bag it is cheaper.)
1/2 cup slivered almonds (optional)
Combine soup and broth in a medium saucepan to make the gravy. You might need to wisk it a little to get it smooth. Add chicken and simmer about 10 minutes. To serve layer: rice, chicken gravy, cheeese, celery, noodles, tomatoes, pineapple and almonds if desired.
