Can you believe Easter is this weekend?  If you are like us, you will have some leftover ham from your feast on Sunday.  This recipe is a great way to use up some of that Easter ham.  I found this recipe over at Tasty Kitchen and immediately decided to give it a try.  It was fantastic!!

Chicken Legs was the head chef on this dish.  He whisked up the sauce while the oven preheated and this was in the oven in no time.  We used a rotisserie chicken from Costco – it is one of our favorite time savers.  This casserole was creamy, cheesy and full of great flavors.  We both thought it was absolutely delicious.  This is definitely going into the dinner rotation.

  1. This is AWESOME! I divide it into three foil containers and make 3 freezer meals for my college kids. It doesn't take me 2-3 minutes for the roux to thicken, more like 15ish.

  2. Made this tonight – it was SOOO good! I divided it into 2 pans and froze one and we ate one. This is a keeper for sure. Thanks!

    1. This is absolutely AMAZING!!!!!! My one and only complaint/concern is, water pools at the bottom of it. I had to take a bunch of napkins and soak up all the water.
