Green Chile Chicken Casserole

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by SharleneW

Easy to make with chicken or leftover turkey. Can also be made ahead and frozen, but increase baking time (cook covered for 1 hour, remove foil and then bake until bubbly and slightly browned on top).

Very tasty, easy to make. I added black olives and since I had no soup, made my own cream gravy with the broth from the chicked I boiled.
