Creamy Chicken Bake

I am always looking for quick weeknight meals that I can throw together with minimal effort. I have no problem cooking a multi step recipe on the weekend, in fact I really enjoy it. That being said, during the week I do not have the time or energy to cook a multi step recipe. I usually cook a roast or a chicken on Sundays or Wednesdays so that I have left overs. I created this recipe while trying to use up my chicken leftovers in a more creative way. Always trying to change it up over here!

So if you have some left over chicken to use up and you want to switch up the flavor, then this is the recipe for you. You just throw everything into a casserole dish and bake it for an hour. Minimal effort with a whole new flavor.

Happy cooking!

      Hi Jessica,

      Nutritional yeast is deactivated yeast that is full of minerals and vitamins. It is often used as a cheese flavor replacement!
