It sure doesn’t get much easier than this Club Chicken Casserole if you are looking for a quick recipe to feed your family on a busy weeknight. I mean how can you go wrong with chicken and rice?

This casserole is even easier to make if you use a rotisserie chicken as I do. For about $7 I usually get two or three good dishes out of it.

It might be a little more work taking the meat off the bones but I will find it easier than baking or frying up some chicken and then cutting it into bite-size pieces.

What I also love about this versatile recipe is that you can easily customize it for your audience. If you are feeding a bunch of picky eaters you can substitute the green chilies and/or pimentos for anything you want like mushrooms or corn. Whatever you have on hand.

The use of bread crumbs as a topping is completely optional as well. I personally like a little crunch with my casseroles so I used about half a cup of Italian seasoned bread crumbs.

If you don’t have any on hand, you can substitute for regular bread crumbs, panko bread crumbs or nothing at all!

An alternative to using chicken broth is Better Than Bouillon. I often use it when I don’t have broth on hand.

    I wanted to try something new for supper, but with limited lime, so decided to try this club chicken casserole. It did not take very long to make and it was very tasty. It took a little under an hour to bake. This recipe is a keeper.
