Chicken Enchilada Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by CandyTX

Candy got this recipe from one of those little paper recipe books you can buy at the check-out... it quickly became a family favorite. Note: I have this aversion to canned chicken so I always boiled and shredded my own, but I'm told the canned chicken was fine.

This got mixed reviews at my house. I thought it was okay. Some of the family liked it, some didn't, so probably won't make again. If you already have the chicken pre-cooked this takes no time to throw together so it would be an easy week night meal.
