I got this reciope from a friend at church. Our kids were little at the time and they dubbed it "worm casserole." The name stuck and everybody who asks us to make this always referes to it as "Worms." It is very good and you can use either real chicken or do a vegetarian version using a can of diced Loma Linda Brand Fri-chick.
