Meet one of my favorite week night meals, Cheesy Chicken Casserole! Make ahead and have enough leftovers for lunch!
My husband makes fun of me because I don’t like to mix my foods. As a child I was scolded for eating one food at a time in its entirety, counterclockwise. It is safe to say I am type A and have a “system” that should not be messed with for just about… well everything. I would have been well served to have a sectioned plate with every meal.
With age I have started to try new things… like mixing my foods and done fairly well at it. While casseroles have me thinking about unidentifiable food as a child, I like to think of my Cheesy Chicken Casserole as macaroni and cheese, elevated.
A one-dish meal cooked in a casserole dish that you will want over and over again. Below are the veggies that I used and love, but you can omit or add anything you choose. Please mind cooking times and veggies that need to be cooked longer as they won’t get enough time when they are packed in between cheese and pasta. I like to serve mine with a leafy green salad and Garlic Balsamic Dressing. This can be made ahead and tastes even better by day #2 in the fridge.
