New favorite alert!!! This Overnight Chicken Tetrazzini is on repeat in our house. It is SO good! We can not get enough of this easy chicken casserole. We LOVED all the flavors in this casserole.

How to Make Chicken Tetrazzini

This Overnight Chicken Tetrazzini is very easy to make. Just mix the chicken, broth, milk, soups, seasonings and pasta together and pour in a lightly greased baking pan. Cover this dish and refrigerate overnight. It will be ready to bake the next day for lunch or dinner.

I used rotisserie chicken in this Overnight Chicken Tetrazzini. It is my #1 time saver. We always have some pulled rotisserie chicken in the freezer for quick meal prep. It makes preparing casseroles like this a breeze!!

As I said, there is no need to cook the noodles ahead of time. They will absorb some of the liquid in the casserole dish as it sits overnight. They will finish cooking in the oven along with the rest of the casserole.

Can I Freeze Leftover Chicken Tetrazzini?

Since there are only two of us, we had leftovers. The leftovers were equally delicious heated up. You can freeze the leftover casserole for a quick meal later. I freeze this casserole after I have baked it. When you are ready to eat the leftover casserole, just thaw and either cover and bake in the oven or microwave the dish to reheat the Chicken Tetrazzini.

We’ve made this several times over the past few months and just can’t seem to get enough of it. Add it to your menu ASAP! I promise it will be a hit!!

    1. I haven't tried freeze this casserole, but I think it would be just fine. I freeze leftover pasta casseroles all the time and they are great reheated. Just thaw and pop in the microwave. Easy!

  4. This sounds too tasty for words! I am wondering if it could be done in
    a slow cooker. Just put together, keep in the frig. or do it in the morning
    and cook on slow....say 3 hours?

    1. I haven't made this in the slow cooker, I would think you could do either. I would probably put it together in the slow cooker insert and refrigerate it overnight. That would mimic the original recipe. All the liquid in the dish softens the pasta overnight. I would think 3 hours would be a good start - it just need to be warmed through. Let us know how it turns out!

    1. This recipe is written to refrigerate the pasta casserole overnight. I have several other Chicken Tetrazzini recipes on the blog that use cooked pasta. Use the search box or look in the recipe index.

  6. I was wondering if there is something else I could use other than cream of mushroom soup, as my family refuse to eat mushrooms? Thank you.
