We love a good casserole recipe – especially when it features chicken! Chicken is one of those ingredients that can be dressed up a million different ways and still be delicious. These casseroles are all so different and SO good!

I’ll be honest… it was a bit of a challenge to compile this list. It feels so definitive and I find a new chicken casserole recipe to obsess over all the time!

With that being said, the recipes all mentioned here were selected because (in my humble opinion) they truly are the very best.

So the next time you have some chicken sitting in your fridge and you’re not sure what to do with it, circle back to this page and let me give you some delicious ideas!

Using Leftover Chicken

Do you have some leftover chicken breast in the fridge you’re just not sure what to do with? Toss it in a casserole! Chicken casseroles are perfect for using leftover baked chicken breast, store-bought rotisserie chicken or shredded chicken.

Freezing Chicken Casseroles

Be sure to check and see if any of the recipes listed have more specific rules when it comes to freezing them! Here’s a quick rundown of tips to keep in mind when freezing chicken casseroles:

  • In most cases, pasta casseroles and casseroles with cooked potatoes and veggies will freeze perfectly.
  • Some veggies will soften a lot after freezing and reheating, so you have to keep that in mind if you’re prepping your casserole for the freezer! Peppers aren’t my favorite out of the freezer. If they’re featured in a soup or chili, it’s fine, but recipes with large chunks really highlight the change in texture.
  • Potatoes and pasta will change in texture after freezing, so whether or not you want to freeze these are up to you. When cooking pasta to freeze, always be sure to undercook it slightly and thaw before reheating.
  • Let your frozen casserole slowly thaw in the fridge prior to reheating. I usually will remove the casserole from the freezer and pop it in the fridge in the morning, that way it’s ready to bake by dinner time. That way it won’t require as much time in the oven and will reheat more evenly.

Making Chicken Casseroles Ahead of Time

It’s always nice to have a chicken casserole waiting for you in your fridge! While all of these recipes have slightly different storage and reheating instructions, here are a few rules of thumb:

  • If you’re refrigerating a cooked casserole, allow it fully cool to room temperature prior to storing.
  • Most chicken casseroles can be assembled up to the point of baking. Instead of placing the casserole in the oven, store it in the fridge and pop it in the oven when you’re ready. They’ll stay good in the fridge for a day or two.
