Easy Weeknight Casserole

This Million Dollar Chicken Pierogi Casserole is comfort food at its best! Chicken and tender pierogis baked in a creamy sauce – YUM! Super simple to make and tons of great flavor from the Alfredo sauce and cheeses. We both couldn’t get enough of this for dinner! Whip up some hot biscuits and green beans and dinner is done!!

What are Pierogies?

Pierogies are similar to ravioli. It is a pasta dough filled with a variety of sweet or savory fillings. I find them in the freezer section at the grocery store. For this pierogi casserole, I used two boxes of frozen garlic & parmesan pierogies.

Helpful Tips & Frequently Asked Questions
