Chicken Casserole

Chicken, Kale and Pasta Bake - Diana Rattray

Casseroles make mealtime easy and perfect for a busy family because they are often a whole meal in one baked dish. Most casseroles can be wrapped and refrigerated overnight and many can be frozen for 2 to 3 months. When making a family favorite, consider making two of them, one for now and one to freeze for later.
Most of these chicken casserole recipes use cooked chicken. Roast, bake, or boil a chicken a day in advance or use a rotisserie chicken or convenient packaged cooked chicken breast strips.
Here are 20 of the most popular chicken casserole recipes on this site, including super easy casseroles made with condensed soups and others made with homemade sauces. Most of these dishes are a snap to prepare, making them excellent everyday family meals.
1. Chicken and Spinach Bake
In this easy chicken and spinach bake, chicken breasts are simply baked on a bed of spinach with a tomato and green onion topping.
Add Cajun or Creole seasonings to the chicken breasts, or use your own favorite seasoning blend.
2. Savory Chicken Noodle Bake
This tasty chicken noodle bake is easy to prepare and makes a great weeknight meal for the family.

3. Chicken and Macaroni Bake
The Gouda cheese in this flavorful casserole can be replaced with a sharp Cheddar cheese. I have used packaged roasted chicken cubes or pre-cooked rotisserie chicken in this when pressed for time.
4. Libby's Chicken and Rice Casserole
This flavorful casserole is easy to prepare and bake with rice, boneless chicken breasts, and onion soup mix.
5. Chicken, Kale, and Pasta Bake With Cheese
This is a great tasting, hearty dish made with pasta, diced cooked chicken, and frozen kale or spinach.
