Chicken and Dressing Casserole – The Perfect Weeknight Meal!

by 247tasty

Whenever we have this casserole it always feels like Thanksgiving. It’s super flavorful and my kids always love this for dinner. This recipe is so easy to make, you can even prepare this earlier in a day. Just cover and refrigerate until you’re ready to bake. Pop in the oven and serve with a big side of mashed potato or your favorite veggies. My favorite is the cheese topping because I love the crunch of it in every bite. Or you can leave it off, your choice. Either way, this casserole will still be as amazing as it ever will be!
