    I do not like using ‘cream of’ anything soups bc they are so salty it overpowers every dish. But almost every casserole calls for it – is there a way around this ingredient, an alternative or a ‘from scratch’ group of ingredients that will let me control the salt?

    Any suggestions on how the cooked chicken should be cooked prior to adding it to the casserole? Boiled? Baked? Seasoned or not seasoned? Maybe a store bought roasted chicken? Thank you! Looking forward to making the family week recipes.

      Hi Sandra,
      To cut time on this recipe, using a rotisserie chicken is a great option, simply shred or chop the meat. If you plan to cook the chicken yourself, any method, baking, boiling, or grilling, is fine. Minimal seasoning with just salt and pepper is sufficient since the casserole itself will be seasoned.
