I love a good casserole, but I love the leftovers even more. This is a perfect dinner to make if you need some lunches for the week!

Chicken Parmesan Casserole

The Point
Chicken Parm is one of our favorite meals. It just tastes so comforting and fancy in a way. Well, if you needed something a little easier to take as leftovers, like I did on my first week in office, try whipping it up in a casserole. You can easily divide and conquer the leftovers and look forward to your lunch break all week!
