Creamy delicious with layers of chicken, sauce and Gouda cheese slices.  We loved this easy , quick supper.  Sometimes time is a factor, and it is good to have a few easy casseroles to turn to when that is the case.  Even although normally I love to cook and bake most of the time; sometimes it can be a chore.  I'm sure it is the same for most people.  I have lots of casseroles that I've created and prepared over the last few years.  I guess I feel that way more often than I care to admit. :P

P.S.  Gouda cheese is loaded with vitamin K, essential for strong bones!
