CFCC (Corn Flake Chicken Casserole) or CF Chicken

I am a mother of a 15-year-old girl named Meg with cystic fibrosis, as well as 12-year-old female triplets. This recipe comes from Grandma and is a favorite in our house. I love to cook and I adapted this recipe from the original recipe in order to add calories for a CF diet. Meg's sisters are also very small because they are triplets, so this helps them gain weight as well. We hope you like this as much as we do.
