A cheesy, steaming hot casserole, just out of the oven, is the most reassuring thing ever. On weeknights, when you’re looking for a tasty, fuss-free dinner, my Cheesy Mozzarella Chicken Bake is a godsend. It’s a combination of my hectic lifestyle and my Midwest upbringing’s fondness for substantial casseroles. When you’re in the mood for something comforting and filling, this recipe is ideal.
To balance the richness of the cheesy mozzarella chicken bake, try serving it with a steamed green bean salad or a crisp green salad dressed with vinaigrette. To make it more decadent, try it with roasted veggies or garlic bread. Finish off the dinner with a warm apple crumble or any other comforting dessert!
