Recipe by BeachGirl

Perfect for potluck suppers. It can be made ahead,frozen, thawed and then baked. A favorite with children, too. My best friend gave me this recipe, and my family has been eating it forever. Very yummy!

Made mine spicy by adding jalapeno cheddar cheese in place of the sharp cheddar cheese and added 1/2 shredded mozzarella cheese. And cheated by using store bought already cooked chicken. I used penne. And instead of layering I mixed it all together. Very quick and easy and delish!
