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. This was sooooo good! I even ate it cold the next day. I will be putting this on weekly rotation. It was salty, so I’ll use unsalted butter and a little less of the ranch packet next time. But bravo for this one!
