The BEST Chicken Casserole EVER

You are going to want to add this Crack Chicken Casserole to your menu ASAP! A creamy chicken casserole that is loaded with cheddar, bacon and ranch. YUM! I made this for lunch last week and we both absolutely LOVED it! I'm wishing I had the leftovers right now. It was seriously delicious.

Use Rotisserie Chicken in Casseroles

To cut down on the prep time of this Crack Chicken Casserole, I used a rotisserie chicken for the cooked chicken. Rotisserie chicken is my go-to for cooked chicken in recipes. We always buy a couple of rotisserie chickens on our Costco trips and keep the meat in the freezer. It makes casseroles like this a breeze to make! I had this ready to bake before the oven had fully preheated.

What to Serve with Crack Chicken Casserole

As I said, we LOVED this Crack Chicken Casserole. We served it with some Roasted Green Beans and Mushrooms and a batch of 7Up Biscuits. OMG! Best meal ever!!! Thankfully we had enough for leftovers. It was all just as good reheated. Add this Crack Chicken Casserole to your menu. I promise it will be a hit!

Can I Freeze this Crack Chicken Casserole?

Absolutely! I love to have easy casseroles in the freezer for a quick meal later. I have frozen this Crack Chicken Casserole and it works great. I usually thaw the casserole in the refrigerator overnight and bake as directed below. If you are short on time, cover the casserole with foil and bake for about 20 minutes to thaw in the oven and then uncover and bake as directed. Just make sure the casserole is bubbly before removing it from the oven to serve.

  3. Seems like a lot to put in a 9 X 9 pan?

    1. not really - fit just fine in my 9x9 pan. You can certainly bake it whatever pan you wish. A larger pan will alter the cooking time, so make adjustments.

  4. Thanks for verifying! Seems like most of your recipes I make are for 13 x 9 x 2 pan, which I put into two 8 x 8 pans so I can put one in the freezer. I made your Monterey Chicken Spaghetti last week - so good!

  6. I also love cooking with rotisserie chicken and who can beat those $5 Costco chickens? But, here's a question for you. When you freeze it, do you put it right into the casserole frozen and cook from there, or do you have to thaw it ahead of time? Thanks!

    1. I thaw the pulled chicken before adding it to the casserole. I put it in the fridge the night before I make the casserole.
