This crunchy potato casserole is a very easy side-dish to prepare for the holidays. All of the ingredients are placed into a casserole dish and then baked in the oven. No additional cooking is required as the oven does nearly all of the work for you. This casserole combines cubed hash browns with sour cream, cream of chicken soup and cheddar cheese. What is really great about this dish is the corn flakes as the topping. The topped of the casserole is loaded with crunchy crushed cornflakes. Enjoy.
