Do you have a favorite, quick and easy cooked chicken casserole recipe?

Asked by marinelife (57893 points ) July 19th, 2012

I have some cooked chicken. I can’t think what to do with it for dinner tonight.

I can go to the store to pick up anything I need.

Chicken salad with curry vinaigrette, walnuts, celery and chopped cukes.

Mix diced/shredded chicken up with 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 can cream of chicken soup, 1 can of button mushrooms, ½ cup of finely chopped onion. Toss it in a pyrex and bake it on 350 degrees for 30 minutes. While it’s baking, boil up some white rice. Plate the rice. Dump the chicken mixture over the rice. Devour.

EDIT: I forgot, salt and garlic to taste.

@gailcalled Surprisingly, in this weather, I was hoping for something hot.

I love the bag of fried rice from Trader Joe. I just put it in a pot in the microwave for a couple of minutes, stir in cooked chicken cubes, and cook another couple of minutes.

My grandsons cook the same thing in a skillet’; drizzle some olive oil in the pan, and stir fry.

OK, this isn’t a casserole, but I really like soup. And if you use a lot of ingredients other than broth, it’s almost a casserole. You can make this in 10 minutes.

Chicken soup
Sliced or diced chicken
Broth
Rice or pasta
Fresh or frozen vegetables (for quick & easy I like the frozen mix with corn & carrots & green beans)
Canned beans (red or white, rinse them first)
Basil gives it a great summer “green” taste
Salt to taste

Options I include when I feel like it:
Minced or crushed garlic
Bean sprouts
Sliced hard-boiled egg on top
Drop a raw egg in and scramble it
Green onions
Diced tomatoes

Simple: Chicken, blanched egg noodles, a can of cream of broccoli or cream of celery soup. Season as needed. Throw together, bake for 30 minutes.

@WillWorkForChocolate I like your recipe.I love stuff over rice.

marinelife's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe I think we may have a winner. I think I will try yours with the addition of some fresh broccoli florets.

@marinelife Nice touch. I love that idea. I’m adding it to my next one. You’re good. :)

I tried to find some recipes that were relatively easy to make, but may be a little different than your ordinary casseroles. Hopefully you or the rest of the collective will find something good on this list. Bon Apetite!

Chicken Enchiladas Recipe 1 Relatively easy, but a little more time consuming then the other 2 enchilada recipes below.

Chicken Enchiladas Recipe 2 Moderately easy.

Chicken Enchiladas Recipe 3 Easiest

Chicken Macaroni and Gouda Cheese Casserole

Savory Chicken Noodle Bake

Chicken Panzanella Casserole

Chicken Alfredo Casserole (Note, you can use pre-cooked chicken in this recipe)

Italian Chicken and Polenta Casserole

Southwest Chicken Casserole

Vegetable Frittata with Chicken (I still consider this in the realm of casseroles)

Chicken Artichoke Spinach Cheesy Bake

Easy Chicken Pot Pie

Mix with cooked pasta, salsa, black olives and corn. Top with your favorite cheddar and heat until bubbly.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@bewailknot That sounds so so good. A great idea.

Thanks. When the pantry is almost empty you have to get creative. It is pretty good with hamburger meat instead of chicken, or even without meat at all.

oil in a pot, throw in whatever veg you have in fridge, sort of stir fry, add salt pepper, garlic powder, chilli flakes, onion flakes (or the real thing if you’re ambitious) a cup of uncooked rice, let it all brown and stir fry until it smells good. I also add a hit of ketjap mantis, probably a bit of soy sauce. Add appropriate amount of chicken stock (2 cups if you added one cup of rice) let it all cook together, when it is almost finished throw in the chicken. I like to serve it in a bowl with chunks of fresh tomato, maybe a peanut or cashew on top, you know whatever you like. It is quick and easy and good! (sort of a variation of Zensky’s rice recipe)
