Chicken ‘Pot Pie’ Casserole

Looking to make a chicken pot pie, but don’t want to put in the effort to make the crust? Me too. Don’t get me wrong, there is something delicious about making it with a crust, but sometimes easiness overrules tastiness, especially when it’s winter and you come home from work when it’s already dark.
