Yummie Casserole!

 The weather is starting to get cooler, and I was thinking a nice baked casserole was in order!
 I had purchased two cooked chickens from the grocer a day ago, and we had not eaten much of it. I thought I could put the rest of the chicken to good use. I cut up the rest of the chicken and started my hunt for a good recipe.
I found one that I thought I would like. The only ingredient I did not have was the cream of chicken soup..so I ran up to the store for that.
I wasn't quite sure how this recipe would turn out. It seemed like quite a bit of work, and boy, what a mess I made in the kitchen. But from my past experiences, whenever I have made a mess in the past, the food is usually very good!
I thought perhaps I would make some nice cornbread too. I just love cornbread. Mmmm!
I couldn't wait for dinner to be ready :)
My husband passed by the meal before I popped it in the oven...he made one comment, it was so funny, I am STILL laughing over it.. his comment was "what is that thing" LOL!
He is such a funny man! I love him!
I am still laughing over thinking of just the way he said it. I was so hoping this meal would come out good, or should I say "this thing" would come out good. :)
Indeed it did!
This was one of the most DELICIOUS casseroles I have ever had ! It was so good! I am so glad I made this meal..even my husband thought it was good, and he usually doesn't care for chicken too much :)
The cornbread went so well with it also.
Sooo...I thought I would share the recipe I found on the internet with you. It really came out delicious, and being that I tried it, and it worked out so well, I just have to pass it along!
Hope you will try it too, it is really worth it..and makes so much!
I am hoping I can possibly freeze some of it? Not sure, but I might try, there is so much leftover.
Enjoy!
