Chicken Verde Casserole

I got this recipe from Girls in Aprons, and it sounded delicious.  Then I found out that it won the LDS Living Casserole Contest, and I knew I HAD to try it.  The flavors were perfect, and just like they said, even the kids liked it.  We are going to be putting this one into the regular rotation for dinner from now on.  Thanks Girls in Aprons for sharing!
