Ingredients
For the Casserole
  • 5-6 cups chicken cooked, shredded, breasts, thighs
  • 250 grams ham sliced, thin sliced is perfect
  • 2 cups Swiss cheese shredded
For the White Sauce
For the Topping
Servings: servings
Instructions
For the Casserole
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Butter 9x13 baking dish. Put the chicken evenly in the bottom of the dish, layer the ham, then sprinkle with the cheese. Set aside.
For the White Sauce
  1. Melt the butter in a medium size sauce pan over medium heat, once the butter is melted, add all the flour stir to make a thick roux, will look like thick paste.
  2. Once it is smooth and bubbly, slowly pour in the milk while whisking to make a smooth sauce. Continue to cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the sauce thickens.
  3. Whisk in the lemon juice, mustard, salt, paprika, and pepper. Bring the sauce barely to a boil then remove from heat and pour over over the cheese in the dish.
For the Topping
  1. Melt the butter in a medium size sauce pan, when the butter is melted, mix in the panko, salt and lemon pepper. Sprinkle on top of the casserole.
  2. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes or until the top is just starting to brown up. Let cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.
Recipe Notes

I will price this when I make it due to the amount of chicken needed, I will have to determine what that is. I will estimate low cost for now and will revise that after I make this.

Instructions
  1. Lightly butter your slow cooker, place everything inside, cover and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours.
  2. Stir well and top with shredded mozzarella if desired. Cover and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes to let the cheese melt.
  3. Serve with a salad on the side for a complete meal.
Recipe Notes

The ground beef would be about 100 Baht/500 grams, the Cream cheese about 120 Baht, 2 cups of Cheddar about 100 Baht, and 1 cup of Mozzarella about 70 Baht. For 4 servings, this is about $2.86 per serving. I think the 6 servings is more accurate, especially if this is served with a salad and maybe dinner rolls, then the cost would be about $1.91 per serving.

Instructions
  1. For the kidney beans, you can use a can or if making from dry, you will need to cook those first, once cooked use 1 1/2 cups of beans in place of a can. BUT, the kidney beans can be substituted with any type of beans you prefer, or any vegetable you prefer.
  2. For the condensed cream of mushroom soup, first, making the shortcut is highly recommended and very easy. If you want to use cream of celery, add celery in place of the beans, that would be delicious! Shortcut for that soup is listed in the Recipe Notes section.
  3. In a bowl, mix together the soup and the stock, amount of stock needed is dependent on how much sauce you would like. Set this aside.
  4. Layer in this order into your slow cooker, first the browned and drained beef, then onions, then carrots, then beans or a vegetable of your choice, then the potatoes on the top.
  5. Pour the soup mixture over the top, cover, and cook on Low setting for up to 10 hours. You are looking for tender potatoes, can check at 8 hours.
  6. About 10 to 20 minutes before you are ready to serve, sprinkle on the cheese, cover, and let it melt. Cheese is optional, if you do not want to use cheese, just omit that.
Recipe Notes

The beef will cost about 200 Baht/kilo. The cheese, about 90 Baht. For 4 servings, this is about $2.13 per serving. If you can get local sourced beef from a village market, you can reduce the cost per serving.

Shortcuts: Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup, Condensed Cream of Celery Soup.

Instructions
  1. For the chicken go with 750 grams to 1 kilo, quarters, breasts, what ever you like, boil or bake to cook, let cool enough to handle and debone if needed, remove skin if needed, and chop to get the cups needed.
  2. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish with butter.
  3. Cook onion and bell pepper in hot oil in a large skillet over medium high heat, about 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in chicken and next 7 ingredients, remove from heat.
  4. Tear tortillas into 1 inch pieces,layer 1/3 of tortilla pieces in bottom of the baking dish, top with 1/3 of the chicken mixture, then top with 1/3 of the cheese. Repeat these same layers 2 more times.
  5. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until just beginning to brown on the top.
  6. Serve with a green salad for a complete meal.
Recipe Notes

Going with 1 kilo of quarters, 75 Baht/kilo and the cheese would be about 180 Baht for a 250 gram block, shredded. I cannot price the corn tortillas yet so I will update this when I locate those. For 8 servings, this is about 94 cents per serving, however, the tortillas, unless you make them yourself, will put this at fair value at least.

Variant: Substitute the condensed cream of chicken soup for 1 cup of sour cream.

Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C.
  2. Discard the crusts of the bread, soak in the water and squeeze dry. Then crumble them into a large bowl. Add all the meatball ingredients except the meat and mix with your hands well, this will soften the onions and enable the spices to blend in the mixture evenly. Add the ground meat and mix well again until the mixture resembles a soft dough.
  3. With wet hands take a piece of meat mixture the size of a large walnut and roll into a large finger shape about 1 inch thick. Continue until all the mixture is used. The meatballs can now be covered and stored in the fridge until required.
  4. In a baking dish, create layers with the vegetables and the meatballs. Add the chopped tomatoes, water, and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and gently mix. Bake in the oven for about 45 to 50 minutes or until the potatoes are soft and the sauce has thickened. To cook on the stove top, use a wide heavy pan and cook the casserole covered, at medium to low heat. You can start with medium heat until it starts bubbling and turn to heat to low. I would imagine 40 to 45 minutes should be enough.
Recipe Notes

The beef will cost about 100 Baht/500 grams. For 4 servings, this is about 74 cents per serving.

  3. Place about 3/4 of the crushed corn chips into the bottom of the casserole dish. Spoon on half the beef mixture, then half the soup mixture. Then add half of the shredded cheese. Repeat the layers, ending with shredded cheese.
  4. Sprinkle the top of the dish with the remaining crushed corn chips. Bake 30-35 minutes until bubbling and top is lightly browned. Remove from oven, let rest for 5 minutes, serve.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 150 Baht for the beef and about 180 Baht for the cheese, think a 250 gram block. For 8 servings, this is about $1.21 per serving.

For the Garlic Parmesan Cream Sauce
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 200 C. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish with butter.
  2. Season chicken with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, to taste. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken, skin-side down, and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side, set aside.
  3. Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in the skillet. Stir in spinach and cook, stirring occasionally, until it begins to wilt, about 2 minutes; set aside. If using frozen, just thaw and squeeze out the water.
  4. To make the garlic Parmesan cream sauce, melt butter in the skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute.
  5. Gradually whisk in chicken broth, thyme and basil. Cook, whisking constantly, until incorporated, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in cream and Parmesan until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. If the mixture is too thick, add more milk as needed; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  6. Place chicken in a single layer into the prepared baking dish. Ass potatoes to the sides and top, then add spinach, and the cream sauce.
  7. Bake until completely cooked through, juices run clear, about 25-30 minutes. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley, serve.
Recipe Notes

Six chicken thighs might be near a kilo, about 70 Baht. For the cheese, go with about 150 Baht. For 6 servings, this is about $1.08 per serving.
