Chicken Cheese Potato Onion Casserole Lunch Box

Lunch Box for wives that are loved

I was too busy to shoot video of this being made. And I didn't have time to shoot one when putting it in the lunch box either. The pictures here don't do this one justice. On the bottom level is something I made up on the fly.  It's so good, I could probably eat it every day.

I Started With Leftovers

I had used the crockpot to cook the day before. I had cooked the small colorful potatoes for about 8 hours. They were on low in the crockpot. I used butter, salt, pepper, garlic, basil and oregon with them. Right next to that crockpot was my dutch oven. It had a chicken in it. I cooked it for the same length of time. All of them were cooked until they were very tender. 

And I Added Them To A Loaf Pan

And I did it in layers. I smashed up the potatoes so they would be easy to smoosh into the corners of the pan. Then I added some tabs of butter, salt, and pepper. Then I added a thick layer of Havarti cheese. A 1/2 inch layer of onions, followed by a 2 inch layer of shredded chicken. (I told you it was falling of the bone.) Then I put another layer of cheese. After topping that with some garlic, olive, salt and peppered tomatoes; I poured on the bisquick. When I say poured, I don't mean it was like water. It was more like honey. Very thick and with substance. 

Put It In The Oven

Set the temp at 450, and cook for 10 minutes. Then reduce the heat to 350, put some butter on the top, and cover it with tinfoil. Let that cook for 25 minutes, and you'll have a very tasty, unusual casserole. And as can add peppers, celery, cauliflower, or anything you want to the mix. It's all good.

The Top Layer Of The Lunch Box

The two simplest things to add. Peeled and chopped peaches in one compartment. And in one of the other compartments you'll find Mixed Nuts. The third compartment is filled with chopped salad made by putting purple cabbage, onions, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, and bell pepper in a blender. Let it chop it until it's the consistency you want. The little container is Ken's Ranch Dressing. She can use that on anything she wants. 

How's that for a lunchbox? 

About Potato Chip Sandwich

According to some people, men can't tell time, can't follow directions and can't cook. That's simply not true. The owner and author of the site, me..  can cook. This site is simply a way for me to keep up with my recipes without putting it into my other 10 or so blogs. Everything is Google-ized, so it's connected to all my other stuff. This site gets it's name from road trips when I was in my 20's. By the time we would head home all we could afford was a loaf of bread and some potato chips.
