Macaroni Chicken Casserole at Work on Manic Monday

Everyone is very busy at our stores with Easter quickly approaching. I took lunch to work for all of my favorite girls today. Sometimes, we just get tired of "What do you want for lunch?" "I don't know, what do you want?" "I want something good, but I don't know what it is." You all know the  routine.

I even brought real plates and cloth napkins-
On the menu, we had Macaroni Parmesan Chicken Casserole and Company Salad with Horseradish Dressing.

Macaroni Parmesan Chicken Casserole

1 8 ounce box elbow macaroni, cooked and drained with salt added to the water
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 3 ounce can mushrooms
11/2 cups chopped cooked chicken
1 cup Duke Mayonnaise
1/4 cup green pepper
1/4 cup onion
I sauteed the pepper and onions in a tablespoon butter
1/4 cup chopped pimientos
1 1/2 cups freshly grated parmesan cheese - I always get parmesan cheese in the deli section with the gourmet cheese
1/2 cup saltine cracker crumbs

Combine Mayonnaise, soup, mushrooms and chicken in large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients, except macaroni and cracker crumbs - . Stir in macaroni. Place in 2 quart casserole dish. Top with cracker crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees until bubbly - about 30 minutes.
Company Salad with Horseradish Dressing

 2 cups torn spinach leaves
2 cups torn red leaf lettuce leaves
2 cups torn bib lettuce
Combine all greens in large bowl
Add 1/2 thinly sliced red onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup cubed cheddar cheese

Horseradish Dressing
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon horseradish
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
a few drops of hot sauce

This dressing is tangy and a little spicy - I love it!
Bon Appetite to all of you working girls - Take lunch to work for your friends!
