For this chicken recipe, you need to use cooked chicken instead of raw chicken.
This delicious casserole recipe is best when covered with aluminum foil while baking. That way it won't dry out.
We like to serve this dish with a simple side salad and some dinner rolls.
Most casseroles are best served immediately after baking. However, this chicken casserole can be made ahead of time and reheated when ready to serve.
This chicken casserole recipe bakes at 350 degrees. I always like to bake chicken at 350 degrees so that it doesn't become tough.
Things to know
- Cover loosely with foil. Otherwise, the cheese will stick to the foil. (Of course, if you're like me, you can stand in the kitchen and pick the stuffing off the foil 😋).
- You can use your own homemade stuffing instead of Stove Top Stuffing Mix if you prefer, but I like to use the store-bought because it makes this such an easy recipe!
- Serving with cranberry sauce would give this meal a Thanksgiving-style flavor.
- Adding a medley of vegetables is a perfect way to sneak in extra veggies!
- Spray your casserole dish well with nonstick cooking spray so that cleaning up is a breeze.
- If you don't have leftover chicken, you can use poached, rotisserie or baked chicken for this recipe.
- Instead of cheddar cheese soup, you can use concentrated cream of broccoli soup, cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup or cream of celery soup for the soup mixture.
- Add frozen broccoli, drained corn, greens beans or mixed vegetables, that works too! You may need to bake it just a little longer. Love this because it makes it a complete meal!
- Instead of stuffing on top of the chicken, you could switch it out and use crushed Ritz crackers mixed with melted butter.
- Add a dash of garlic powder and onion powder to the soup mixture next time you make this dish for more flavor.
Refrigerate - Cover with plastic wrap or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
Freezer - Freeze in an airtight freezer safe container for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating. Perfect for a busy day when you don't feel like cooking.
Reheat - Reheat in the oven at 350 degrees until heated through. Or in the microwave for one to two minutes. If you find that this casserole recipe is dry, when reheating add a little chicken broth or water.
