We have here the ultimate Midwestern, mid-century recipe! It combines evaporated milk, chow mien noodles, and canned soup (two kinds!) with . . . oh, drat. Never mind; the cheese is missing. Still, it’s pretty classic.
1-2 heaping cups of boned, chopped chicken or turkey
1 small can (5 oz) evaporated milk
1 can chow mien noodles
1 can chicken rice soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
Small can mushrooms, drained
Optional: peas and peanuts, buttered crumbs
Preheat oven to 350F
Mix everything (except crumbs, if using). Bake 1 hour.
