  • 2 cups cooked diced chicken
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 10.75 ounce can condensed cream of chicken soup (NOT diluted)
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese divided
  • 1 ½ cups frozen peas not thawed
  • ¼ cup sliced pimientos drained
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ cup sliced almonds divided
  • Garnish: chopped fresh parsley
  • Optional for serving: biscuits rice, or dinner rolls


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 2-quart (8-inch square) casserole dish with cooking spray.
  • In the prepared dish, stir together chicken, Worcestershire sauce, cream of chicken soup, milk, ½ cup of the Swiss cheese, frozen peas, pimientos, and ¼ cup almonds. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cover.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 minutes, or until warm.
  • Remove cover, sprinkle top with remaining ½ cup of cheese and ¼ cup of almonds.
  • Return casserole to the oven and bake, uncovered, for 5-10 more minutes (or until hot and bubbly and the cheese is melted).
  • Garnish with fresh parsley just before serving.
  • Serve over hot biscuits, with cooked rice, or with dinner rolls.


Cooking Just for Two? Cut the ingredients in half and bake the casserole in a 1-quart dish. The cooking instructions remain the same; however, you can probably decrease the overall cooking time to about 35 minutes (the smaller dish will heat through a bit faster).
