How to make Chicken Little Casserole

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F. Using a non-stick spray, lightly grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

Step 2: Place 1-2 cans of soup (adjust depending on how creamy/saucy you want this to be), milk, garlic powder, onion powder, rosemary, and thyme. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well until combined.

Step 3: Into the prepared baking dish, spread the mashed potatoes in an even layer and top with the shredded chicken. Over the chicken, pour the gravy and sprinkle with cheddar cheese (optional).

Step 4: Into the prepared oven, place the baking dish, and bake the casserole for about 25 to 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

Step 5: When done, take the casserole out of the oven and allow it to cool for about 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
