My Delicious Cheesy-Chicken Microwave Casserole is a simple comfort food dish oozing with a velvety cheese sauce through macaroni, chicken, and olives accented with curry powder that does incredible things for the taste buds in such a combination.
I love this recipe for several reasons. It
tastes great, doesn't take long to make and uses cooked chicken or turkey. In fact, this is the perfect way to incorporate that leftover chicken into a casserole. You can just as easily substitute leftover ham or beef for the same
amount of cooked chicken and it still is scrumptious, only somewhat differently.
I do hope you will try this recipe. I think
that you are going to like--no--love it!
