Cheesy Chicken Casserole Recipe – Chicken, noodles, chicken soup, sour cream, cheddar, mozzarella topped with butter crackers and poppy seeds – makes a ton. Great for a potluck. Easy to half or make a whole batch and freeze half for later!
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!
