I love this Creamy Chicken Casserole for a busy weeknight dinner because it takes only 10 minutes of my attention. Plus, frozen chicken CAN be used. You’ll need to add 10-15 minutes to the cooking time. Be sure to temp the chicken before removing from the oven. Cooked chicken should have an internal temperature of 165F.
The other cool hack for this Creamy Chicken Casserole recipe is that it can be a freezer meal! Simply follow the recipe - using fresh, not frozen chicken - and cook up the casserole. Then cut up the chicken into one-inch pieces and stir it back into the rice and vegetables. Scoop all that creamy goodness into a freezer-safe container and freeze. Just heat and serve any night of the week as Chicken and Rice Bowls! Top with a few fried onions when serving to add a bit of crunch.
