Last weekend, we had some of our family over for a BBQ. It always happens, we make way too much food! We had everything on the grill - hot dogs, burgers, ribs, pork chops and grilled chicken. Tons and tons of food! Which meant, tons and tons of leftovers!

I don't mind leftovers ... the first day or two. After that, it needs to be made into something different. You know?! The kiddos pretty much finished off the burgers, ribs, pork chops and hot dogs for lunch - but I still had a bunch of grilled chicken breasts to use. For me, I love using leftover grilled chicken in casseroles! It makes dinnertime easy peasy!

I have been majorly stressed out with so many things going on. Most days, I don't know if I'm coming or going! Sometimes, a bit of comfort food just sounds good and it hits the spot. Ya know?!

Remembering those chicken breasts that I needed to use, I made my Cheesy Chicken Noodle Casserole! It's a spin-off of a casserole I ate as a child and it uses ingredients I keep on hand. It is easy, delicious and loved by kids! As a matter of fact, my kiddos love to snack on Horizon Cheddar Snack Crackers ... aren't the cow shapes the cutest?! If you have followed me for any length of time you know that we have visited a few local dairy farms here in the Phoenix area and since our visits, Abby is obsessed with all things cows! Anytime we go anywhere, she wants to know if we're going to see the cows! I had some Horizon Cheddar Snack Crackers on hand, and this is a cheesy casserole, after all, so I used some of the kiddos crackers on top of the casserole for a bit of extra "Mmmmmm factor!"
