Easy “Cheat” Chicken Casserole

Easy Chicken Casseroleeasy-chicken-casseroleThrow this easy, "cheat" chicken casserole together in minutes.  Perfect for those busy weeknights, when there's just not enough time.

Even though I am a stay-at-home housewife, I find myself more often than not, in some sort of time crunch.  Hey, I'm not knockin' us housewives – We know damn well it's hard work…But when I think of other people hearing the word "housewife" I tend to believe they are picturing Peg Bundy and her bon-bons :))  So like, here I am trying to justify myself, even though I know I don't have to haha.

 Okay, so the reason I dubbed this recipe "cheat" chicken casserole, is because we're using basic ingredients that many pantry's already have on hand.  So no, I won't be asking you to slow roast a 24 hour marinated chicken or pick the finest organic tomatoes you can find.  This is real life, buddy and sometimes real life involves just having to whip something up in a jif!

Alright, onto the recipe.   Feel free to tweak it however you like!
