"We used leftover roasted chicken as well and left out the olives. It was very good."

"I made this casserole & it was very good. The next time I made it, I also added 1 stalk of diced celery, 4 tbls of half and half, and used the left over rotisserie chicken for added flavor. Some made like to add abit more milk to make it creamier. This was a hit in our family."
