Chicken Casserole (Dairy and Gluten/Grain Free)

By Irene Shaver @hhwife
As a child my mom used to make a chicken casserole that I loved.  I have actually never made one on my own but have had a several cravings.  For this casserole, I decided to use coconut cream and broth as the sauce base.  The nutritional yeast added a nice "cheesy" flavour.  Depending on your size/amounts of vegetables you may want to place around with the amount of cream or broth.
Hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
