Chicken Vegetable Casserole

I think I have probably mentioned before how much I love casserole dishes and this Chicken Vegetable Casserole is no different. First of all this dish is so good and has so much flavor! You also get lots of veggies packed right into one dish.

This is one of those recipes I don’t mind cooking during the summer. This casserole only cooks in the oven for twenty minutes. Even on those hot summer days, you can throw this in the oven and not have to worry about warming up the house too much.
 
This is one of those dishes where you need a side dish. Sometimes I just serve the casserole alone and other times I pair it with an Avocado Salad. This salad is a light salad that goes good with just about anything and is perfect for summer nights.
