Chicken Florentine Artichoke Bake Recipe

3 Oct

Who doesn’t need a wonderful, delicious chicken casserole recipe right about now?  I know I do!  As the weather here in Madison gets colder (and wetter!) – nothing seems to warm you up like a good old-fashioned casserole.  Am I right or am I right? 

Don’t let a big casserole intimidate you.  Is it only the 2 of you?  Cut this recipe in half and make in little ramekins.  

This recipe is my sister-in-law, Susan’s recipe and it’s adapted from Better Home & Gardens.
