Cheesy Chicken Casserole


This Cheesy Chicken Casserole makes a great weeknight meal.  I used a rotisserie chicken and it only took a few minutes to mix everything together.  This makes a ton.  I divided the mixture between two 8-inch pans and froze one (uncooked) for later.  If you freeze this, just cover the dish with foil and bake for about 20 minutes, and then uncover and finish baking for an additional 20-25 minutes.   We both really enjoyed this dish.  It was super cheesy and delicious.  It was even great reheated for lunch.  Give it a try!

1 rotisserie chicken
16-oz wide egg noodles, cooked
24-oz light sour cream

8-oz shredded Cheddar cheese
8-oz shredded mozzarella cheese
1 sleeve Club crackers, crushed
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 tablespoons poppy seed

Preheat oven to 350.

Remove the meat from the chicken and chop.  Mix together chicken, noodles, sour cream, soup and cheeses in a large bowl. Pour into a lightly greased 13"x9" baking dish. Mix together cracker crumbs and margarine; sprinkle over top. Sprinkle poppy seed over cracker crumbs.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until crackers are crispy and golden and cheese is melted.

  9. WARNING: Do not make this dish. Repeat. Do Not Make This Dish. You will not be able to stay out of it. You will not be able to stop at one serving. This happened to my entire family. We ate until we couldn't move, then sat in front of the TV all evening thinking of how to eat more of this stuff. Daughter didn't even finish her bread... and that's saying lots!

  13. Sounds delicious! I have made several of your recipes and they are all met with rave reviews:) For this, do I need to cook the chicken and the noodles before putting in the baking dish?

  14. Shanelle - yes, cook the chicken and noodles before assembling the casserole.

  15. Can you throw some veg in there? Like some green beans or broccoli? I have a friend whose mother passed away and I'm trying to make some easy, one dish meals for my friend, her hubby and their two kiddos.

  16. Jennifer - I think broccoli would be great. Hope they enjoy the casserole.

  17. If you freeze one, do you thaw first or are your baking instructions from frozen? How do the noodles hold up after being frozen? I've started doing a lot of freezer cooking, but so many websites say pasta doesn't freeze well. Would love to hear your thoughts. Love your recipes!

  18. Do you think this recipe would be ok if I substituted pulled pork shoulder for chicken?
