See The Recipe!

Not only are casserole recipes easy to make, but they’re also a symbol of comfort food in many kitchens. Usually made with some sort of cream-of-something soup or cream cheese, their creamy texture is something I often crave.

And while you can make a casserole out of just about anything, chicken is a staple that most every kitchen’s freezer or refrigerator is stocked with. And my favorite hack to making any chicken casserole even easier? Use a rotisserie chicken!

While all recipes will vary of course, there are some ingredients that are good to keep on hand to be able to throw together a quick casserole when the craving strikes.

  • Rotisserie chicken
  • Sour cream
  • Cream of mushroom soup
  • Garlic powder
  • Chicken broth
  • Carrots
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • Fresh veggies
  • Ham or bacon
  • Shredded cheddar cheese

What to Serve with Chicken Casserole Recipes

Most easy chicken casserole recipes are pretty hearty. They generally have a creamy texture, are carb heavy and are best paired with something a little lighter.

Each casserole might be different, but serving with a nice green side salad is always a good option. Depending on which veggies are in your casserole, you can also serve with a side of veggies like asparagus or broccoli.

Storage and Freezing

While every casserole recipe might have slightly different instructions, this is a guideline for most.

How to Store Casseroles

You can store any leftover casseroles in an airtight container in the fridge. They should last up to three days. I would avoid just covering the baking dish or pan with foil. Airtight containers keep food fresher for longer.

How to Freeze a Casserole

Casseroles actually do freeze really well. Check out my guide for how to freeze a casserole for more specific instructions.
