Leftover Cheesy Bacon Chicken Casserole

Do you ever wonder what to do with your leftovers to make them NOT leftovers anymore?...I do!
After making the "Crock Pot Cheesy Bacon Chicken" (recipe that was posted Wednesday), 
I had about 3 pieces of chicken left over...not enough to serve the entire family but 
enough I could do something with! So I mixed up this casserole and it was a huge hit...AND the best
part was, no one knew it was "left overs", so it was gobbled right down without one complaint!

Leftover Cheesy Bacon Chicken Casserole
Left over chicken and sauce from "Crock Pot Cheesy Bacon Chicken" (March 20, 2013 recipe post)
2-3 c. cooked rice
1-2 c. grated cheddar cheese
cooked bacon crumbles 

Shred leftover chicken with a fork. Mix cooked rice with chicken and sauce. Place in a casserole dish sprayed with cooking spray. Top with grated cheese and bacon. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until the inside of the middle of the casserole is hot. Serve with dollop of sour cream if desired. 

*NOTE: if you don't have much sauce left over...add another can of cheddar cheese soup and 1/2 can milk (my left overs still had plenty)
