This recipe came about much like my Crack Potatoes recipe – leftover Crack Dip. I hardly ever make a regular chicken casserole. In my opinion, the old-school sour cream and cream of chicken soup recipe is too mushy and lacks flavor. I thought if I substituted Crack Dip for the sour cream and added noodles it might be good. I was wrong, it was great! Seriously delicious! Chicken Legs especially loved it. This makes a ton, so I froze half of it for later. This is definitely going in the regular dinner rotation!

    1. I would thaw it first and bake it for the time listed. If you want to bake it frozen, cover it with foil and bake for about 15 minutes and then uncover it and bake for an additional 30 minutes or until bubbly.

  1. silly question, but you say you froze half for later…does that mean you could split this amount into two 8×8 dishes or did half of it fit into a 9×13? Thanks!

  2. This was delicious! I used light sour cream and 99% fat free soup. Trying to figure out the calories – do you have the original calories per serving?

  3. I made this tonight and it was absolutely delish! I've been making recipes from your blog every day for the last two weeks and this is my favorite so far 🙂

  4. One of our new favorite family recipes! I've also started making it when bringing over a meal to friends/neighbors — good flavor from the ranch, but not so "intense" that it's going to be disliked by a pickier eater or by a new nursing mama. Any leftovers reheat nicely in the microwave the next day for my lunch at work! Thanks!

  5. Assuming the chicken is precooked as well???
    Also, do you cut the chicken into chunks or shred?? Wanting to make right now but not sure as theres no specifics.

    1. just an fyi….easiest way to shred your chicken…..place in a bowl (hot or cold chicken) and use your hand mixer….the best way to shred and easy, so easy!

  6. I don't enjoy cooking meals – I only like to bake. As a result, I don't have a lot of confidence when cooking for others so we don't have friends over very often. I always ask my husband to rate the dishes I try so that I know if I should try something again. Tonight, I made Cracked Out Chicken Noodle Casserole and while eating, my husband said, "You could make this for company!" So, that's a good thing!

    1. Yes – the bacon is cooked before adding it to the casserole. I use either Oscar Mayer or Hormel bacon pieces found in the salad dressing section.

  8. I LOVE your Crack Potatoes- I almost always have a couple of pans in the freezer ready to go! Would you freeze this one before cooking, like the Crack Potatoes, or after? I haven't frozen anything with noodles, so not sure how to do it. Thanks for all of the great recipes!
