I went scouring the big binder last week to find a recipe that would use our chicken leftovers that we froze about 2 weeks ago. I had made a delicious roast chicken and what was left over would be great in a casserole. This was a recipe that we have had but hadn’t made in quite sometime. So, we dropped our son off at his basketball practice on Wednesday we went to the store and picked up the small list of ingredients that we did not have on hand. Everything was ready to throw this together after work the following night. And it worked out well having the ingredients handy and the chicken already cooked.
It is casserole season, cold winter evenings where you want something hot and hearty. Hubby and I had tickets to see Matilda, so a nice hot casserole was perfect to head back out in the cold after dinner. This chicken casserole fits the plan with the corn tortillas and the cheese. It can be made with fat free soups and a reduced fat cheese for a light version. Either why it is a great dish.
