Cracked Out Chicken Noodle Casserole


This recipe came about much like my Crack Potatoes recipe - leftover Crack Dip. I hardly ever make a regular chicken casserole. I think the old-school sour cream and cream of chicken soup recipe is too mushy and lacks flavor. I thought if I substituted Crack Dip for the sour cream and added noodles it might be good. I was wrong, it was great! Seriously delicious! Chicken Legs especially loved it. This makes a ton, so I froze half of it for later. This is definitely going in the regular dinner rotation! 




Cracked Out Chicken Noodle Casserole
serves 8-10
(Printable Recipe)


  • 4 cups cooked chopped chicken
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 16 oz sour cream
  • 1 (1oz) packet Ranch dressing mix
  • 3 oz bacon pieces
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 12 oz egg noodles
  • 1 cup crushed Fritos


Cook egg noodles according to package directions, drain.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray.

Combine chicken, soup, sour cream, dressing mix, bacon and cheese. Stir in cooked egg noodles.

Pour mixture into prepared pan. Top with crushed Fritos.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, until heated through.

  2. I LOVE your Crack Potatoes- I almost always have a couple of pans in the freezer ready to go! Would you freeze this one before cooking, like the Crack Potatoes, or after? I haven't frozen anything with noodles, so not sure how to do it. Thanks for all of the great recipes!

  5. Is the bacon cooked before adding to the casserole?

    1. Yes - the bacon is cooked before adding it to the casserole. I use either Oscar Mayer or Hormel bacon pieces found in the salad dressing section.

  8. I don't enjoy cooking meals - I only like to bake. As a result, I don't have a lot of confidence when cooking for others so we don't have friends over very often. I always ask my husband to rate the dishes I try so that I know if I should try something again. Tonight, I made Cracked Out Chicken Noodle Casserole and while eating, my husband said, "You could make this for company!" So, that's a good thing!

  10. Assuming the chicken is precooked as well???
    Also, do you cut the chicken into chunks or shred?? Wanting to make right now but not sure as theres no specifics.

    1. This uses 4 cups of cooked, chopped chicken. I chop it up with a knife.

  11. One of our new favorite family recipes! I've also started making it when bringing over a meal to friends/neighbors -- good flavor from the ranch, but not so "intense" that it's going to be disliked by a pickier eater or by a new nursing mama. Any leftovers reheat nicely in the microwave the next day for my lunch at work! Thanks!
