Chicken Casserole

Victoria Ross


Got this recipe from a Penzey's spice catalog which is where I get all my spices. They have excellent spice blends, good prices and fabulous recipes on their site contributed by people like us! This casserole is very simple to make and the flavor will have you wanting more! I added the ritz topping myself but can be made without it to reduce the fat and calories but it tastes fabulous with it!
