The best thing about this Chicken Casserole recipe is how easy you can customize it to your liking. You can add vegetables to it, bacon, anything that you’d prefer. You can use rotisserie chicken, leftovers chicken meat or even poached chicken. I used store-bought Alfredo sauce for this recipe, but feel free to make your own sauce if preferred. You can use any kind of pasta you want. I used penne but there’s ziti and rigatoni.
