Been shopping all day? Too tired to cook a big meal? This is a delicious casserole and takes only a few minutes to put together and a half an hour to cook. Add a salad and you can have a hearty meal on the table in an hour. All you need is some cooked chicken , left over from another meal, boiled, broiled or roasted, or even from the deli. This can be made to feed 3 or 4 people or more if need be. Just add more chicken and make in a larger casserole dish. Figure 3-4 ounces of chicken for each person. You might need to double those portions for a growing teen ;^)

Busy Day Chicken Dinner
3-4 cups cooked chicken ( I like to use boneless chicken breasts but you can use both light and dark meat)
1 can Campbell's Cream of Chicken soup
2 cups chicken broth ( if you boiled the chicken you can use that broth, or I use 1 Knorr's chicken bouillon cube in 2 cups water).
1 can of mixed vegetables
1 stick Land O Lakes butter or margarine, melted
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup Martha White self-rising flour
Salt and pepper to taste

Cut chicken into 1" cubes and spread in the bottom of a large baking dish. Spread the mixed vegetables over the chicken. Mix together the soup and broth and heat until the soup is incorporated. Adjust seasonings. Pour the soup mixture over the chicken and vegetables.

Mix the flour, melted butter and buttermilk together and pour over the top of the ingredients.
Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until biscuit topping is browned and a toothpick comes out clean when stuck into the topping..
Serve with a tossed salad and Voila! A hot tasty meal you didn't have to slave all day over.
