What to do with the Leftovers?

If you have any leftovers, you can store them in your fridge and make sure to use an airtight container. And when you are ready to serve just thoroughly reheat in your microwave and yes make sure to finish all the leftovers within 2 days.  If you ask me, about the leftovers then you know what I always love to have it because on my busy days it saves lots of time and effort.

To cook this easy chicken casserole, you only need 1hr and 15 mins of your life (haha!) but yes, it worth it! And if you are calorie conscious then my friend this recipe is for you because it has only 400 calories and easily you can have it on your lunch or dinner and shed those extra pounds.

What to serve with the Chicken Casserole?

I personally like to serve it with mashed potatoes and that cream of chicken sauce is what I use as a gravy over it.

If you are already bored with mashed potatoes, then try it with rice or pasta. And the rest is the same, use the sauce from the chicken over the pasta or rice as gravy.

To change the taste you can use all different cuts of chicken like someday try with chicken breast or someday with thighs or drumsticks. And yes you can also load your Chicken Casserole dish with some extra mushrooms.
