This casserole is very easy to make. Start with chopping some cooked chicken and placing it in a baking dish. Top the chicken with mozzarella cheese. Next, in the bowl of a food processor, combine eggs, cottage cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, garlic salt, onion powder, and white pepper until smooth.

  1. I made this recipe today, so good! I added a yellow onion and red bell peper uncooked to the top layer of chicken/cheese layer, it added such an amazing flavor! This recipe will be added to my file. Thank you for all the recipes you post, you are an amazing cook and full of ideas!

  2. I loved the texture of this casserole but for myself and my husband it was a bit bland as printed. Maybe next time i would add come stir fried carrots, onions and peppers.

  3. Made this a couple of nights ago – a success for me. I added finely diced onions, about 1/4 cup, half can of diced green chilies for little more zing. It took an extra 10 minutes to bake probably due to the added moisture. I’ll keep this recipe on hand and may add a few more spices next time. Was great with a green salad.

    1. Marlene,
      It’s much easier to blend using a food processor, but I think you CAN make it without one. The next best thing would be to use a “stand” mixer. If you don’t have one, then try a hand mixer. It may help to let the cream cheese, cottage cheese and sour cream sit in your mixing bowl for a bit, to help with the blending process.
