How to store the chicken casserole?
Store any leftover casserole in an airtight container in the fridge. The casserole will store for 2-3 days no problem.
Best way to reheat the casserole?
Warm your casserole in the microwave for a quick reheat. Or if you want to warm it up in the oven just cover the casserole in foil. Then heat it up until warmed through.
Can I add a crumble topping?
Mix ½ cup breadcrumbs or crackers with 2 tablespoons butter. Add the crumble on top of the casserole and it will bake up nice and golden in color and taste delicious for a crunchy component.
Why is my sauce thin?
If your sauce is thin just allow it to sit for about 10 minutes once you remove it from the oven. This will help it thicken up a bit. The sauce is meant to be slightly runny. It will thicken more once you refrigerate the leftovers.
