I asked you all on Facebook what kind of recipe you’d like me to post next, and the consensus seemed to be “casserole”. When I was a child, I didn’t like casseroles much, but I remember this simple chicken casserole being one that I enjoyed, so I knew it was the perfect one to share with you this week.  After I made it, I knew it was the right choice.  It’s more delicious than I remembered.

Nanny's Almond Chicken Casserole

The first time I ever ate almonds was probably in this casserole, and now they are my favorite nuts. They give this dish a pleasant and surprising crunch that I just love! I also love that this is so simple, just stir it all together and cover it with crackers. It’s a great dinner in a hurry, make ahead meal, or freezer meal too. Just make it up ahead of time but wait to add the crackers before baking.
