Tasty Tuesday - Mediterranean Chicken Casserole.

Although this recipe sounded great, I was a little wary of it because a lot of the reviews said that it was bland. I read each review and decided to use some of their addition suggestions. Turned out great! Cameron even gave it the "you can make this one again" approval.

Mediterranean Chicken Casserole
Recipe and photo found here.

1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell's® Condensed Cream of Celery Soup (Regular or 98% Fat Free) I used 98% Fat Free Cream of Chicken Soup.
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves, crushed
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well-drained
2 cups cubed cooked chicken OR 3 (4.5 ounces) cans of canned chicken
2/3 cup orzo pasta, cooked and drained I used about 3/4 cup of orzo.
1/2 cup shredded Italian cheese blend
    Tbsp minced garlic
    2 pinches of red pepper flakes

    Next time additions:
    Artichoke hearts
Stir the soup, water, oregano, black pepper, spinach, chicken and pasta in a 2-quart shallow baking dish. Cover the baking dish. I stirred in about 1/4 cup of the shredded cheese into the mixture.

Bake at 375°F. for 30 minutes or until the chicken mixture is hot and bubbling. Sprinkle with the cheese.
