Tammy's Review: 

I created this casserole as a quick and easy use for leftover chicken and/or egg noodles. The carrots and corn, along with the cheese, add bright colors to this dish and make it feel like a little "sunshine" in your meal. ;) The simple seasonings of garlic, onion, salt, and pepper give a great flavor and make this one of our favorite casseroles. My rating: 10/10.

Easy and Tasty

We really liked this easy to fix casserole. I added spices as another review said it was bland. I add more garlic powder, thyme, celery salt. It tasted wonderful ,like a cross between chicken pot pie and chicken and dummplings.YUM! I also used frozen mixed vegetables(veg-all type). Super easy and a great way to use up leftover chicken. I will be making this again.
