~ Savory Chicken & Spinach Casserole ~

Cassie *


My family loved this casserole, even the ones who don't like mushrooms, she just picked them out...LOL! It's quite savory and delicious!

If you don't like mushrooms, add a different veggie instead..I used mushrooms, because they needed to get used and were quite tasty with the spinach.
