Chicken Soup Casserole & Strawberry Muffins

This evening, I decided I would fix supper at home, even though Drew had offered to take me out to supper tonight. I thought it would be a nice change since we go out 2-3 times during the week, and when we do eat at home, it's usually a fast cooked meal in the microwave or bowl of cereal. When I came upstairs, Drew and his sister Kim were working on homework assignment, so I got started on preparing the meal at hand. Tonight I would fix a chicken soup casserole and strawberry muffins. The things you will need to prepare for the chicken soup casserole are as follows:

1 can of vegetable oil cooking spray
1 deep oven pan \_____/
1 semi-deep frying pan
4 chicken breasts
2 cans cream of chicken soup & 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup ( can be large or small depending on how much casa role you are wanting to fix)
Aluminum foil ( to fit ontop your oven pan)
1 baking sheet
preheat oven to 450 degrees and turn stovetop on to medium high

   I started by taking a large frying pan, spraying vegetable oil into the pan. Usually when we shop for chicken, we buy a big packet of boneless chicken breast. Out of this packet I chose 2 large and 2 small boneless chicken breast and put them into the frying pan. Putting the heat on medium high to high, grill the chicken on both sides till white all the way through. After this, turn your stovetop off and take your chicken out with kitchen thongs and place them onto a cutting board. With a huge cutting knife and a fork to hold the chicken into place, cut the chicken to start in long lines, then chop into simi-small squares. In a deep oven safe pan, place the chicken squares, aligning along the whole bottom of the pan evenly.
   After this, open 2 cans of cream of chicken and 2 can of cream of mushroom soups. pour these evenly upon the chicken squares in your deep oven safe pan until all the chicken is completely covered. Mix in the soups evenly, and take aluminum foil and cover the top of your pan completely. Place the oven pan onto a baking sheet and when the oven is pre-heated, slide the baking sheet with oven safe pan on top into oven. If have an oven timer, set for 1 hour or 60 minutes. When finished, you'll have a nice warm dish of chicken soup casserole.

By the time I had finished this dish, Drew and the rest of the family were away from the house. Drew's mom and step-dad were gone grocery shopping at Wal-mart, Kim had returned home and Drew had went to work  mowing the yard for our store owner friend. I decided to fix the strawberry muffins, and afterward sent Drew this picture below with a message...

" When you get home, this will be waiting for you <3"...=)   The cooking may take some time, but in the end, you'll come to enjoy the outcome of your own creation.
