The best dinner recipe is the one that everyone in your household loves, and that only takes a little time and effort on your part. This is exactly why we love this recipe! We use rotisserie chicken if we need to cut corners, then mix up all the ingredients right in the baking dish, which saves us tons of time on cleanup time. This casserole is ideal as a warm, welcoming main course, but you can also skip the chicken if you want to serve it as a side dish – we've made it both ways and can attest to their tastiness!
