VERY tasty! I didn’t have olives so didn’t add them. Was looking for a recipe that would use most of the items I had on hand and I found this. I doubled it because I like a few leftovers. I added a little bit more milk (2 T) just to use up what I had in it was I will certainly make this again.

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.
