Colorful, creamy and simply delicious. This super simple perfect weeknight dinner chicken casserole, is the perfect dinner for people who want a flavor but still simple dinner.

I really love this oven bake. It is so colorful, it tastes bomb and everyone love it. The kids can’t get enough of this, so safe to say this is kids friendly. It's super simple because you are basically tossing everything in a pan for a few minutes and then in an oven baking sheet, the oven does the rest.

Why is this the perfect weeknight dinner?

  1. You can prepare everything in the morning and when you come home, just turn on the oven.
  2. It is the perfect leftover meal.
  3. You can freeze it and easily put it in the oven. It will taste incredible. The mushrooms won’t have a different consistency. It will taste the same.
  4. Thanks to the bell pepper you are getting enough vitamin c for the rest of the week.
