One-pot meals take chill off, cause no fuss

ALISON LADMAN, Associated PressOctober 10, 2012 

Just as summer demands salads, fall calls for casseroles. The combination of a chill in the air and the chaos of kids heading back to school means many families are looking for easy, warming one-pot meals that come together quickly and with little mess or fuss.

So when we created this recipe, we kept things simple. In fact, to cut down on mess and time, it is mixed right in the dish it is baked in. We also turned to that ultimate workhorse of the weeknight kitchen -- the rotisserie chicken. Add a few vegetables and a creamy sauce made from pantry staples, and dinner's on the table in no time.

Some folks may turn up their noses at using cream-of-anything soup in a casserole. But busy families have been turning to it for decades for three simple reasons -- it works, it's delicious and it's effortless.
