Often a rotisserie chicken or two can make a fantastic supper.  I had two cooked chickens on hand for this dinner, but only used 1 cup of cooked, diced chicken from the second chicken.  This is a particularly easy and quick recipe when time and energy is a factor, as happens to many of us from time to time.  Add a veggie or even add cooked mushrooms or asparagus or green beans to the casserole and you have a full meal deal, so to speak.  Could not be easier!

5 cups diced cooked chicken (1.25 L)
4 oz thinly sliced deli ham (125 g)
7 oz thinly sliced Swiss cheese (210 g) (use a mild cheese)
Creamy Sauce:
8 oz regular cream cheese (250 g)
1 cup almond milk, OR low-carb milk, OR cream, OR coconut milk  (250 mL)
2 tbsp water (30 mL)
2 tbsp olive oil (30 mL)
1/2 tsp cornstarch, OR arrowroot powder, optional (2 mL)
1/4 tsp salt (1 mL)
1/tsp black pepper (1 mL)

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). 

In 9 x 13-inch (2 L) casserole dish, layer chicken and deli ham. 

Creamy Sauce:  In food processor, process cream cheese, almond milk, water, olive oil, cornstarch, OR arrowroot powder, onion salt and black pepper.

Pour the sauce over chicken and ham layer and stir to combine.  Layer Swiss cheese over the top.  Bake until heated through about 20 to 30 minutes.
