This is a hearty and satisfying meal! Even my picky children love this! The lime flavored chips add such a nice taste and contribute to a crunchy topping! I always keep the ingredients for this on hand curing the winter. This is a quick-casserole because the chicken is already cooked, you just need to heat through. And, because your actual 'cooking' time is just assembling and into the oven, it can be done on a weeknight. This re-heats nicely!
