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. 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?

  2. 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!

    1. Joyce – you had me worried for a second. So glad your family love the casserole. Not eating your bread is a big deal here too!!

  3. This sounds delicious! I'm new here and love your blog! I'll be looking around now, esp. at those 7 up biscuits!

  4. Steph, we sure were thinking alike today! LOL. I love the sour cream and poppy seeds in there!! Awesome photo too 🙂

  5. I have made this before! It is easy and it tastes great. Next time try to use crumbled Doritos instead of the Club crackers.
