Recipe by Karen E.

This is a creamy, cheesy, yummy casserole that your whole family will enjoy! I always use more cheese than the recipe calls for, because I am a cheese lover.

Simple, easy to make casserole. Kids would love this, nothing hidden that they don't want! I only gave it 3 stars because it was sort of bland. For me it could use a little more spice. I'm thinking next time I might cook the chicken differently so it has more flavor. Also thinking of using a more flavorful cheese or a blend of the jack with cheddar. It's a good recipe. I'm going to use it as a starting point and start experimenting!
