A very tasty chicken casserole.

This is a great casserole and I like that it used chicken thighs (we prefer). I used all red peppers (prefer over green) and only 1/2 the amount of red pepper flakes. Made for a family dinner night we attend weekly with friend and everyone loved it. Made recipes as is; did not double or triple since others were bringing dishes and it went fast! Made for I Recommend Tag.
