  • 4 large cans of canned chicken (or any other kind of chicken you have on hand)
  • 4 cans of mixed veggies (or frozen mixed veggies)
    • 2 cans mixed veggies
    • 1 can green beans
    • 1 can corn
  • 4 cans of cream of mushroom (or any other “cream of” soup like cream of chicken)
  • 1 can of chicken broth
  • 1 box of penne pasta (or any pasta of your choice, or biscuits)


  1. Prepare the Chicken:
    • Drain the canned chicken and cook it in a skillet to remove the canned taste. Season with pepper, garlic powder, and garlic and herb seasoning.
  2. Prepare the Vegetables:
    • If using frozen veggies, heat them in the microwave or add them frozen and adjust your cooking time. If using canned veggies, drain them.
  3. Mix the Base:
    • In a baking dish, combine the “cream of” soups and drained veggies. Season with basil, parsley, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper. Mix well.
  4. Combine Chicken and Base:
    • Once the chicken is cooked to the desired doneness, add it to the baking dish and mix again. Add chicken broth to achieve a gravy-like consistency.
  5. Bake:
    • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Bake the mixture for 20-30 minutes, just enough to heat it through. If using frozen veggies, this may take longer.
  6. Prepare the Pasta or Biscuits:
    • While the casserole is baking, boil water and cook the pasta according to the package instructions, or bake your biscuits.
  7. Serve:
    • Serve the casserole over the cooked pasta or biscuits.
