Use Rotisserie Chicken in Casseroles

To cut down on the prep time of this 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.

Can I Freeze this Chicken Casserole?

Absolutely! I love to have easy casseroles in the freezer for a quick meal later and this 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.

  1. We absolutely loved this casserole! I did add cooked rice and frozen spinach to make a one and done meal! Thanks for the delicious add to our dinners!

  2. Made this 2 nights ago and it was wonderful. My husband and I had it for dinner, our son had it the next day and claimed the rest of the dish…which he just finished off. He asked if I could make more and said he thought it was so weird that it could be so good even cold! I added green peas to mine but that’s the only change. So good. I’ve printed the recipe for the 4Ever Favorite Collection.

  3. I just made this and haven’t tasted it yet but it smells so good! I cut the recipe in half since I only had 2 cups of my chicken left over, also it’s just me so this is plenty!!

  4. Made this and brought it to work, everyone loved it!! I did however throw some raw broccoli into the casserole before adding the chicken mixture and then baking. It was delicious!

  5. Delicious!! If you like “Funeral Potatoes” IE: Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole, you will love this. Not the healthiest recipe, but oh so yummy. I didn’t have Ritz Crackers, so substituted crushed corn flakes. We bought a Rotisserie chicken for this recipe, which made it even easier to make.

  6. Made it for the first time today. Easy to follow recipe. Delicious and will definitely make again. With covid 19 virus I’m starting to enjoy making more recipes posted on Pinterest! Great app for all recipes

  7. Made this tonight for my picky eaters. They really enjoyed it….i liked the crunch the crackers gave it. However, very salty! Wow. I think next time i will use low sodium ritz & mayb half a pkg of the ranch, in hopes to cut down the salt. Other than that, very good. Just paired it with a salad, plenty enough!
    Thanks!
