This is a wonderful recipe that can be prepared in not too much time, most of the time is the long cooking time to get the yummy crusty top on this casserole. I make this with whole BBQ chicken that you can get from your supermarket, but the other night when I had planned to do this, they had sold out, so I had to buy chicken breasts instead. It was a real pain as I was late coming home from work anyway and then I had to cook the chicken. I also could not get a can of cream of chicken soup so I had to buy a knorr sachet and make the chicken soup as well so you can imagine the time this added to an already late dinner. Oh well it was really good and tasty in the end and we all enjoyed it even if it was late. I usually have left overs when I make this as there are only 3 of us. I just store the leftover in the fridge and then I reheat in the oven so you still have the crusty top.
