Recipe Notes

Crispy Topping- We love the Rice Krispies Cereal on top of this, but feel free to try some other toppings. Panko Bread Crumbs, Regular Bread Crumbs, Potato Chips, Corn Flakes or Crushed Crackers would all be yummy!
Add Veggies- Try adding some frozen vegetables. Frozen peas, carrots or broccoli would be fun!

Add Some Spice- Add some Buffalo Sauce to this recipe to give it some kick.

Bake Uncovered- We bake this dish uncovered to get that top nice and crispy and bubbly. If your to looks like it's burning a bit, you can cover with aluminum foil at the end of cooking if needed. 

Cut The Calories- Make this a little lighter with some substitutions. Use Greek Non-Fat Yogurt instead of Sour Cream. Use only White Meat Chicken Breasts. Opt for Low-Fat Shredded Cheese. Sub the Cream of Chicken Soup for Low Fat Cream Cheese and 2 tsp of Chicken Bouillon Paste.
