Chicken Casserole with Lattice Breadstick Top
- 1 (14.5) ounce can white beans
- 1 tube Pillsbury pizza crust
- 1 1/2 cups rotisserie chicken, shredded
- 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese
- 2 tablespoons butter
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 can Progresso Recipe Starters, Creamy Garlic
- 1/4 cup bacon bits
- fresh chopped parsley for garnish (optional)
- 1 cup frozen carrots
In a large bowl, stir together Progresso, chicken, white beans, bacon bits, and carrots. Add 1 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste. Pour into a 9x9" baking dish.
Sprinkle 1/4 cup of cheddar on a wooden cutting board. Unroll the pizza crust on top of the cheddar, sprinkle the top with the remaining cheddar. Cut into 10 thin slices.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. To make the lattice breadstick crust, place five of the breadsticks across the top of the baking dish. Thread one breadstick through the center, then work outward, all ten breadsticks are woven together.
Melt butter and drizzle over breadsticks. Tuck edges of the breadsticks inside the sides of the baking dish.
Bake in oven for 15-21 minutes, or until the breadsticks are golden brown. Remove from oven and cool slightly before serving. Top with parsley for garnish, if desired.
