My family was rather skeptical the first time I served this, but I knew it was a hit when they quickly asked for seconds! I especially like serving this to company, since I can visit with my guests while it bakes.
The flavors of the asparagus, chicken, ham and cheese all blend together so well in this unique main dish. This recipe also provides a creative use for leftover holiday turkey! I like to serve it with garlic bread and a salad.
This recipe came from our County Extension Agent's wife, who was a wonderful cook. Everyone always asks for the recipe when I make it because the ingredients are a little different than those in most chicken pies.
I don't know where this casserole originated, but the recipe was given to me some 40 years ago. It's my family's all-time favorite. Not only is it a great "company" meal, it's also well-received at potluck dinners.
