    This looks so delish yet so easy! In your written recipe, you don’t indicate that the chicken should be grilled before adding, nor do you indicate when it should be added. I know that you included that information in the body of the post, but for pinners, etc, you may wish to edit your recipe card. Anywho, thanks for a winner of a casserole!
