I made this great casserole meal today.  This was a simple and quick recipe. It is a great budget stretcher and would be great for pot lucks and other gatherings or those nights when you need to throw something together.

The recipe called for 2 cups of already cooked chicken so I used chicken that I had made the night before.

I put the whole thing back in the deep covered baker and baked it. Using the deep covered baker would  you to pop this in the microwave for about 20 minutes.  I also used reduced fat cream of chicken soup and reduced fat sour cream to cut down on some of the calories and served it over cooked rice.
