Having a large family of seven to nourish, I’m frequently shopping around for brand new chicken casserole recipes and quite often I think up a handful of my very own. Casserole dishes tend to be quite simple: rice or pastas + meats + sauce = scrumptious meal.
I put this together on one rather busy weeknight. I'd another chicken casserole planned, however I discovered I didn't have all of the recipes ingredients. And So I altered it a little and came out with a success. This particular Crispy Cheesy Bacon and Chicken Casserole is among our absolute favorites!
