This is an easy casserole that I like to serve with pasta. It is just as good with less fat, using boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooking spray instead of oil, and thickening with arrowroot or cornstarch rather than the butter and flour. Either way, my family loves this! (It's good with the marinated artichoke hearts, too!)

I made this last night for the Bargain Basement Tag 2009. This recipe is outstanding. I cut the recipe in half because there is just DH and I but made the full amount of sauce (added a little roasted garlic) and served over rice. I used 4 boneless chicken thighs and served it along with Recipe#173875#173875. This made an easy and delicious recipe which I will definately make again for us for a wonderful meal and will serve to company! Thank you Chef PotPie for a wonderful dish!
