Ingredients

  • For the Casserole:
  • 4 cups 4 cooked and shredded chicken breasts (approximately 4 chicken breasts)

  • 4 cups 4 prepared dressing (homemade or pre-packaged)

  • 1 cup 1 frozen peas (optional)

  • 1 cup 1 frozen corn (optional)

  • For the Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup 1/2 unsalted butter

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups 2 chicken broth

  • 1 cup 1 milk

  • 1/2 teaspoon 1/2 salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon 1/4 black pepper

  • 1/4 teaspoon 1/4 poultry seasoning (optional)

Directions

  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter.
  • Stir in the all-purpose flour and cook, stirring constantly, for 1-2 minutes until the mixture is smooth and slightly golden.
