Family Favorite Crunchy Chicken Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Parrot Head Mama

This is our standard holiday dish that everyone requests for dinner. An old family favorite that's even BETTER leftover and/or cold. Prep time is less than stated if you use a food processor to chop chicken & vegetables.

This is an easy yet very tasty and fullfilling meal. Loved the crunch of the slivered almonds. A great comfort dish yet impressive enought for company. Thanks for sharing, Parrot Head Mama.
