"Sometimes you just crave down-home comfort food, and this Dump-and-Bake Southern Chicken Casserole does not disappoint! It's an easy dinner that comes together with about 5 minutes of prep, for a simple and satisfying one pot meal that the whole family can enjoy. I like to think of this chicken casserole as a simplified version of Chicken Pot Pie -- without the crust. It's full of your Southern grandmother's favorite ingredients -- including diced pimientos, sliced almonds, peas, and chicken -- all swimming in a creamy Swiss-cheesy sauce. Best of all, this is a chicken casserole that only requires a few minutes of hands-on time, since you're just stirring everything together in one dish. It's a dump-and-bake meal that makes life EASY, and nobody at your table will ever guess how quickly it came together! While you can certainly just enjoy the Southern Chicken Casserole on its own, I like to serve it piled high on top of warm biscuits (remember...it's like a chicken pot pie filling?!), with rice, or with dinner rolls."

NotesCooking Just for Two? Cut the ingredients in half and bake the casserole in a 1-quart dish. The cooking instructions remain the same; however, you can probably decrease the overall cooking time to about 35 minutes (the smaller dish will heat through a bit faster).
