Turn Leftover Chicken Into A Great Casserole
Casseroles are always a great choice when you have proteins left over or a couple extra vegetables you want to use up. Adding a tangy BBQ sauce makes this casserole a kid favorite as well.
Casseroles are those wonderful dinners that you can either make and eat the same evening or prepare and stick in the freezer for later in the week when you only have enough time to stick something in the oven. But casseroles can sometimes lean toward the heavy side with all the sauces and canned soups used to make them. Ladies' Home Journal thought of a way to lighten up the delicious chilly night dinner though. They suggested using a barbecue sauce instead of a heavy cream-based soup. The tangy sauce not only made for a nice change of pace, but it got my toddler excited about dinner as well. And anything that can turn my son onto chicken (besides deep-frying it) gets a big fat plus in my book.
