The other day, as we were sitting in front of the TV (don't judge, it was cold outside!), I got a craving. Good ol' Chicken Casserole. You know, the one with noodles, cheese and broccoli. I had some chicken breasts thawing anyway. I looked through my freezer and pantry, and thanked myself, once again, for being a food hoarder. Because I had everything I needed on hand to satisfy my craving. Love it when a last minute plan comes together!
I thought I'd share this. It's a potluck favorite, and super easy!
