Cheesy Chicken Casserole

This is the ultimate comfort food.  It’s crunchy, cheesy, chicken-y, buttery…just overall delicious.  This is another recipe that has been handed down from my mom.  She used to make it for me all the time when I was little.

Zack really likes it, too, so it has become a staple in our household.

This is my first post in a few days.  I’ve been really busy getting everything ready for Thanksgiving.  I made desserts to take to my granny’s dinner on Thanksgiving day.  Now I am preparing for my first ever hosting of a Thanksgiving Dinner.  My parents, stepdad, Zack’s parents, brothers, and grandma are all coming.  I am really excited and really nervous at the same time.  (Yep, I’m cooking the entire traditional spread myself).  The dinner is Sunday, so be expecting a post about it soon after that.

Enjoy this recipe, it’s one of my favorites! 🙂
