California Chicken Casserole

This was a popular potluck dish making the rounds in the late 70's/early 80's. My preteen daughters (now in their 40s) used to beg for this. If you are looking for a low fat recipe, this one is not it, but it is low in carbs. I'm calling this "California" chicken casserole because the frozen vegetable blend was called "California Blend". I searched about 40 screens of "chicken Casserole" and did not find this one so here we go...
