Chicken Macaroni Casserole

Chicken Macaroni Casserole is quick and easy recipe to make. A yummy, cheesy casserole the kids will love that is perfect for those busy weekday dinners.

In this Chicken Macaroni Casserole I like the flavour of Cream of Celery soup, but you can also try it with Cream of Chicken or mushroom soup. For the cheddar cheese I use a sharp cheddar but any kind will work great.  Sneak in some healthy veggies! Great additions would be peas, carrots or even green beans.

This is a great recipe for using leftover chicken or even rotisserie chicken you buy at the supermarket.

The pimientos add some color and depth of flavor to the sauce mixture, and a buttery crumb crust finishes this casserole perfectly. The shredded cheese is optional but adds a creamy texture and a nice taste. You can also add other vegetables to this casserole—try mushrooms, bell peppers, broccoli, and even corn.
