This is one of those recipes that make you glad you made a whole frozen chicken in the Instant Pot. You can use that chicken in this dish. Don’t have cooked chicken on hand? Use leftover turkey or a store bought rotisserie chicken. No judgment here mamas. Costco has a fantastic price on said chickens. As long as you are feeding your people, it doesn’t matter who made the chicken.
Saute the mushrooms for 2 or 3 minutes just to soften them up a bit. You could also use canned or jarred mushrooms and skip this step. They won’t taste quite as good but you will be hard pressed to notice. Stir together the sour cream and cream cheese with the spices. Add the rest of the ingredients, except half the almonds and the parmesan aka shaky cheese, together and put into 9×13 baking dish. Now add the remaining almonds and sprinkle on the parmesan cheese. You can use fresh or the green lid variety aka shaky cheese. Grace abounds, mamas. Cook in a 350 degree oven.Print
