Happy Friday guys! Today’s recipe is Pumpkin & Chicken Casserole – seriously delicious and comforting one pot meal, just add some freshly baked (lots of it!) bread to it and serve it hot for a tasty heart-warming meal! πŸ™‚

Pumpkin & Chicken Casserole

Honestly, I had about half of a bread loaf with this casserole and if I didn’t stop myself I would probably have had the other half too. πŸ™‚ This Pumpkin & Chicken Casserole is just screaming for a delicious bread to soak the tasty juices with. I don’t have such meals very often but now the weather has changed, I’m sure this will change too. I seriously need to improve my self-control skills and be able to stop after having a generous amount though. πŸ™‚ But try to look through my point of view – you get home after a long and exhausting day, haven’t had any food all day, froze yourself off at the park and finallyΒ  put the kids to bed and…see a pot with hot Pumpkin & Chicken Casserole and freshly baked bread! πŸ™‚ How could you not eat half a loaf of bread with it. πŸ™‚
