Easy Chicken Casserole

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! This French Onion Chicken Casserole is a great weeknight meal. SO creamy and delicious. AND those fried onions on top – YUM! We ate this for dinner last week and finished off the leftovers for lunch. SO good. I’m wishing I still had some leftovers right now. I guess I need to make this again soon!

How to Make French Onion Chicken Casserole

This casserole is SUPER easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. I had this casserole assembled and ready to bake before the oven had preheated. The hardest part of the whole recipe is having the self-control not to eat all the yummy fried onions before putting them on the casserole. LOL!

To make the casserole combine cooked chicken, cream of chicken soup, cheddar cheese, and french onion dip. Spread the chicken mixture in a baking dish, top with some fried onions and bake.

  • I used a rotisserie chicken in this recipe. Rotisserie chicken is a great time saver. I use it in all of my chicken casseroles.
  • For the french onion dip, it is important to use a container for a refrigerated sour cream dip in this recipe. Look for Kraft, Barber’s, Dean’s, or Heluva Good Dip.
  • If you can’t find the sour cream dip, you can substitute sour cream and some onion soup mix.
  • Can chicken casserole be made in advance? Yes! You can assemble the casserole ahead of time and refrigerate it overnight. You may need to add a few minutes to the cooking time if baking straight from the refrigerator.
  • Can chicken casserole be frozen? Yes! You can assemble the casserole ahead of time and freeze the casserole unbaked for later. To bake after freezing, thaw completely and bake as directed below.
  • You can also freeze the baked casserole. To reheat after freezing, thaw the casserole. Cover casserole with aluminum foil. Bake at 350ºF for 30 to 45 minutes, until warm.

  1. I have made this recipe and my family loves it! Was wondering if this could be made in a crock pot and how you would do it? Without AC, I am loathe to turn on my oven and am looking for something to please everyone. Thanks!
