Best Ever Chicken Casserole

March 4, 2017

This unforgettable Chicken Casserole will make you the queen of your book club, Bunco night or potluck dinner. Right out of the pages of the 2004 Southern Living Recipes Annual, this is a totally delicious recipe that is guaranteed to please. It’s great served hot or at room temperature . . . I like it over rice, too. Plus, if you’re a retiree or baby boomer who forgets how to cook but knows how to use OpenTable, this is super easy and two-nights’ worth of dinner for you and your honey! Bon appétit!
