Chicken Normandy Casserole

Do you need something to do with your leftover cooked chicken? Here is a great way to put that chicken to good use. This recipe will feed 8-10 people or is fantastic as leftovers. What a great combination of stuffing, chicken, celery, carrots and more. I love this recipe because it is made up ahead of time and refrigerated. You can even leave it overnight in the refrigerator and bake it the next day. Or you can freeze it, thaw it out and bake it. Just make sure you let it sit at room temperature for about an hour if refrigerated and an hour after it’s thawed, if frozen.
