Another good casserole recipe from the Taste of Home Magazine, "Simple and Delicious," however, it does require 8 hours of chilling time prior to baking. We had this tonight and it was a hit! The picture is my own. It might be kind of hard to pick it out, but there IS a piece of chicken laying across the noodles! LOL
