Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt a little extra-virgin olive oil and butter in a flameproof casserole dish or Dutch oven.
Add 4 cups fresh or frozen chopped vegetables and saute until al dente.
Turn off heat and stir in
- 2 cups cooked chicken
- 1 cup shredded cheese
- 1 can condensed cream soup
- 1/2 cup sour cream, creme fresche or yogurt (I like to mix 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 yogurt)
Bake, uncovered for 20 minutes until hot and bubbling. Sprinkle 1 cup shredded cheese over top of casserole and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes until cheese is melted.
