Happy Monday! I hope you all enjoy your weekend!

We started with chicken that we roasted last week. We most always roast 2 at a time, this is our 3rd meal so far from the chickens, Buffalo Chicken Bites, Chicken Quesadillas and the Creamy Chicken Enchilada Casserole.

We all enjoyed this casserole and there were plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day.
