How to Make Chicken & Gravy Casserole

This casserole is SUPER easy to make. Start with spreading some cooked chicken in the bottom of a baking dish. Next whisk together a packet of chicken gravy, chicken broth, and cream of chicken soup. Pour that over the chicken. Finally, combine melted butter, flour, pepper, and buttermilk. Spread the batter over the top of the chicken mixture and bake.

  • I used a rotisserie chicken for the cooked chicken in this recipe. It worked great.
  • This would also be good with some leftover holiday turkey.
  • I used McCormick Chicken Gravy Mix.
  • I suggest using low-sodium or salt-free chicken broth.
  • Sometimes I like to add a cup or so of frozen mixed vegetables to the chicken mixture. This is a great recipe to sneak in some veggies into!
  • To make homemade self-rising flour: combine 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1½ tsp baking powder, and 1/4 tsp salt
  • If you need a gluten-free casserole, you can substitute McCormick gluten-free Turkey Gravy mix, gluten-free baking mix for the flour, and gluten-free cream of chicken soup. You can find gluten-free cream of chicken soup at Walmart.

  1. I made this tonight. Cut the recipe in half and used an 8×8 pan since I’m only cooking for 2. It was so good! Put it over garlic mashed potatoes and my husband said it tasted like Thanksgiving in everything bite. Thanks for such a great recipe!

  2. Stephanie,
    I wondered if adding some shredded cheese to the batter would be good in this. It really looks good as it is, but I was just wondering. LOL!

      1. Just a question, in your opinion, how much chicken broth do you think I should use if I use a can of Campbell’s Turkey Gravy instead of the dry packet?
        I almost always have that on hand, it’s the best pre-made gravy that we’ve EVER tasted! This entire family (Mom, Gramma, kids, hubby, sister, brother, you get the picture lol) LOVES gravy, but we’re all incredibly picky about it and no one wants anything but homemade, this is the ONE gravy that everyone will eat and actually enjoy. Sometimes it’s difficult to find but it’s well worth it to give it a try if you can! Maybe not necessarily in this recipe, but in general. 😊
        I personally would like to use it though, soooo, if you have any thoughts I’d love to hear what you think. My only thought was to measure the amount of canned gravy and add enough broth to make 2 cups, the canned gravy might be a little thicker than the packaged type normally is, but I don’t think it’s enough that it would cause an issue with the dish.
        Thank you in advance for any ideas or experience that you or anyone else may have. ☺️

        1. What a great idea! But unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.
