Million Dollar Chicken Casserole #SundayFunday

If you are of a certain age, you might remember this dish from your childhood.  It was popular in the 50's and 60's.  It is easy, delicious, and quick to make.

The Sunday Funday Bloggers are sharing recipes that start with Rotisserie Chicken......

I am hosting this week and asked the others to join me in sharing recipes that start with rotisserie chicken.  

Some of these recipes can be made with leftover chicken, but I find that starting with a store-bought rotisserie chicken can save a lot of time on busy days.  Some of our members are non-meat eaters and have shared some great ideas for side dishes to serve with rotisserie chicken.

Let's take a look at what the others have brought to the table.....

Million Dollar Chicken Casserole

I served this casserole over pasta.  It is not a light food, it is rich and gooey with cheese so a little goes a long way.  This casserole will generously serve 6 with leftovers for lunch the next day.

I'm not sure where this recipe first originated, but it contains both Campbell's soup and Ritz Crackers so I'm sure it was on the back of a box or can.  I substituted Panko for the Crackers as that was what I had on hand.
