  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook fusilli in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 10 to 12 minutes.

  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chicken; season with minced onion, basil, parsley, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear. Stir in fusilli pasta, cream of chicken soup, cream of mushroom soup, and mixed vegetables. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.

  • Mix bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and butter together in a small bowl; sprinkle evenly over the casserole.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly and lightly browned, 30 minutes.

Tips

I had a loaf of 2-day-old beer bread on hand, which is great for the bread crumbs in this recipe because it's crumbly anyway, and its sweet flavor is even better when it's buttery and crispy!
