My notes: The topping adds so much to this casserole. I really like regular (non fat-free) Parmesan & recipes don't call for much of it, so I use regular. You won't believe the wonderful aroma of this casserole. It will be difficult to let it set for 2-3 minutes before digging in!!
Also: I use Tyson frozen chicken breast from Sam's club them,
NOTES : From Grandma's Comfort Food Made Healthy (This is one of my family's favorites - even my teenager loves it!! . . . I made a quadruple recipe - took half to church, froze one whole recipe and we ate the other one. There's never leftovers of this one.)
(I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine. It is one of our favorites that I make over and over again. . . .

(Very generous serving and "very" good. I am cooking a lot of HE recipes and hubby likes most of them. He liked this one. . . . I had 3 cooked chicken breast in the fridge. Would you believe I will get 3 recipes from those? Now that is economical!!)
(Yes, a little meat goes a long way. Healthier AND saves money. JoAnna's recipes strike me that way, I'm satisfied so I don't keep rooting around for other stuff to eat.)
(I "absolutely" love this. Have made it twice this I usually mae a double recipe and freeze the leftovers. They are so good even frozen for weeks!
