If you like meals you can make in advance then that’s just one more thing to love about this casserole. It can be prepared up until the baking point. Instead of baking, cover it tightly with saran wrap or tinfoil. Place in the fridge up to 24 hours before baking. When you’re ready for it, just pop it in the oven, uncovered, for about 30 minutes or until warmed through. 🙂  

Get ready for everyone to love this dish. It is definitely a favorite at my house!

WHAT TO SERVE ON THE SIDE?

Parmesan Roasted Broccoli broccoli florets tossed in garlic and freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

Oven-Roasted Asparagus- asparagus that is lightly seasoned and baked in the oven to get a slight crispiness.

Baked Parmesan Zucchini- sliced zucchini covered in Parmesan cheese and filled with Italian flavor. 

Fabulous French Bread homemade bread that is soft and fluffy on the inside with a crispy golden crust.

ALTERNATIVES

Condensed soup- not a fan of canned cream soups? Try my Homemade Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup! It is delicious. Keep in mind you will only need twenty ounces of it.

More greens– instead of serving a side of veggies, why not toss it right in the casserole? Green beans, peas or broccoli are all great options.

Creamier- you can add in sour cream, Greek yogurt or milk to give this an even creamier consistency. 

Vegetarian- this casserole can easily be made meatless. Substitute the chicken for mushrooms and you will be in heaven!

 

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

This stays good covered in the fridge for up to 4 days.
