Chicken & veggies is the classic healthy dinner, but it doesn’t have to be boring. Add some parmesan and some breadcrumbs, and you’ve got a parmesan chicken & veggie bake that’s loaded with flavor. It’s so crunchy and cheesy that you won’t even remember it’s also healthy. We used protein-packed chicken breasts and fiber-rich veggies, so you can feel good about eating a dish that tastes so indulgent. It’s a win-win.

    Hi, using this for our Bake sale at Church. Have never tried Freezing and reheating. Is that a good idea for this casserole and if so suggestions.

    Thanks DJ

      DJ, That should be fine. The important thing to keep in mind, be sure to defrost in the fride before reheating.
