EAST TEXAS (KLTV) -

Here's a delicious recipe for a Chicken-taco casserole requiring only a few ingredients. You can have dinner on the table in about 40 minutes, and that's including 30 minutes bake time. Just make sure to prep a few things on a day off (like pre-cooking pasta and storing in a Ziploc bag in the fridge...make sure to coat in a bit of olive oil to keep the pasta from sticking together.)
