Chicken Casserole with Creamy Mash & Sautéed Red Cabbage!

I love my mom’s cooking. One of my favorite recipes by her is her Chicken Casserole.  Anytime there are family gatherings at her house, this is her go-to dish.  For folks that know me, know that I love plating more then cooking.  So why not pay tribute to her hearty dish by making this a work of art. #FOODART
