It doesn't thicken. Needs something to make the "sauce" thicken

Nice casserole, but needs more seasoning, cheese on top, and an egg to hold it together.  Nice way to use a rotisserie chicken.  I'll make it again.  Definitely comfort food.  I baked it in an 8" x 8" glass casserole dish, and used chopped fresh broccoli because my other half doesn't like peas.

I added a full teaspoon of nutmeg and salt and pepper to taste.  I also used Italian style breadcrumbs for the topping.  Delicious!!
