This is my hubby’s favorite chicken casserole ever, and it’s a great deal at Publix this week! I found it years ago in a ladies church cookbook, so you know it’s gotta be good. It’s one of those yummy warm meals to enjoy as it’s cooling down, and when I made it last night my kids begged for more (that doesn’t happen often around here!)
If you have cooked chicken that you’ve already shredded, this recipe is easy, and even if you don’t you’ll just have to cook your chicken and dump the ingredients in your casserole dish (well, there is an order to it, but it really is just dumping!) Here’s what you’ll need . . .
