Hawaiian Chicken Casserole

0 from 0 votes

A crunchy and sweet entree!

Casseroles are easy meals, but they can get boring. This Hawaiian chicken casserole is a new take on an old favorite. It’s just as simple and quick as your typical casserole recipes, but it’s way more exciting. Its tangy sauce is made with honey, soy sauce, pineapple sauce, onion, and bell peppers. It’s sweet and savory, and bursting with flavor. We also love this casserole for its health benefits. Chicken breasts are an excellent source of lean protein, and whole-wheat breadcrumbs are packed with fiber and B vitamins. Healthiness and tastiness: it’s a win-win!
