 Cheesy Chicken Sweet Potato Casserole

I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited about a casserole in my entire life!  I wouldn’t be able to pick out one thing in it that I loved more than another.

The ingredients came together so perfectly that each bite was perfection. The biggest surprise though, were the sweet potatoes. They were magnificent combined with the other ingredients.

I used grated Gruyere and Swiss cheese in the casserole. Gruyere cheese can be a little pricey, if your budget doesn’t have room for that, use all Swiss Cheese instead.

This casserole uses pre cooked chicken. Using a rotisserie chicken would save you the step of cooking chicken for the recipe. I had a very large chicken breast that I poached in water on top of the stove which yielded the two cups I needed for the recipe.

Using a rotisserie chicken and pre baking the sweet potatoes would save busy working mom’s and grandma’s prep time the day you make it. I’m trying really hard to make this as easy as possible for you because I want you to make it. I want you to taste how absolutely magnificent this casserole is.

I want you to have the pleasure of tasting the melting Gruyere Cheese with the flavor of the Swiss cheese , sweet potatoes, chicken and spinach. Oh and the ranch dressing packet that adds more flavor! There are no words to describe it, you need to taste it.  Cheesy Chicken Sweet Potato Casserole the best casserole EVER!
