    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, you know the ones you got in the cafeteria. I was also anti-cafeteria food, by the way.

    With age I have started to try new things… so as I approach 40, I’m trying to mix my food. Let me tell you, mixing isn’t that bad! Especially when it comes to my Cheesy Chicken Casserole!

    While casseroles have me thinking about unidentifiable food or “cream of something” soup, I like to think of my Cheesy Chicken Casserole as macaroni and cheese, elevated.

    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.

    Cheesy Chicken Casserole can be made ahead and tastes even better by day #2 in the fridge. I even make a large batch as meal prep and bring it for lunch every day!

    Tools you will need for making Cheesy Chicken Casserole:

    Large Casserole Dish– This is good for so much more than just casseroles! Use it for marinating, lasagnas, storage and even for transit.

    Wood cutting board – wood won’t dull your knives like plastic and if treated properly, has natural antimicrobial properties.

    Good knife – Global is my favorite! They are worth the price, I promise. I am kind of obsessed with them and store them tucked away so no one else can use them. Including hubby. Hands off my good stuff!
