They say a picture's worth a thousand words, but this one is worth a million bucks...or at least the name would suggest that! This creamy, crunchy casserole relies on store-bought shortcuts like rotisserie chicken and cream of chicken soup to whip this dinner up in record time.

Recipe author Amanda Stanfield shares a few pointers: firstly, you can make this ahead of time and freeze it up to 4 months in advance for an even easier weeknight winner. She adds a few ways to customize this casserole, "To change up the flavor on this dish you can easily substitute in different types of rotisserie chicken like mojo or lemon-pepper, or garlic. You can also use just about any butter crisp cracker; Ritz has an assortment of flavored crackers that could be any easy way to switch up the flavor profile."
