Chicken and Ham Casserole

Recipe by AussieGal Tracey

I found this recipe in the nursing mothers association cookbook. I have been giving this to my family once a month and they look forward to it. While it might not be the most glamerous dish. Its really yummy and my kids love it

This recipe has such simple ingredients, yet it was a hit with my man. He took the leftovers for lunch the next day and continued to sing its praises when he got home. It will be back on our dinner table. Thank you.
