Easy Chicken Casserole Recipes
When it comes to easy dinner ideas, casseroles are always a good choice. They typically require minimal prep, which not only means less time in the kitchen but also fewer dishes to clean. Plus, the bake time is generally an hour or less.
While you can make casseroles from nearly any ingredient, chicken is always one of my go-to’s. It’s just so versatile and works with so many different flavors. You can even use a rotisserie chicken to cut the prep time down!
Below I’ve rounded up some of my all-time favorite chicken casserole recipes. They’re made from scratch with real ingredients, no canned cream of chicken soup or cream of mushroom soup in any of these recipes!

Each of these chicken casserole recipes will have individual storage instructions so be sure to check that specific recipe post. But, in general, chicken casserole leftovers will last for 3 to 4 days in the fridge.
I recommend keeping the casseroles tightly covered with foil or transferring the leftovers to an airtight container.
You can typically reheat the entire casserole dish, covered, in the oven at 350F but reheating individual servings in the microwave works too.
How to Make Ahead and Freeze
Casseroles can be assembled ahead and kept in the freezer for make-ahead meals. Simply cover the casserole dish with plastic wrap and foil, and use a sharpie to write the name of the recipe and date and a note reminding you to remove the plastic!
To bake, transfer the baking dish to the refrigerator the day before so it thaws overnight. Then bake in the oven as instructed on the recipe.
