Easy Chicken Casserole Recipe

It’s creamy, cheesy and wonderfully satisfying and really only takes 10 to 15 minutes to prep this casserole. Then place it in the oven for 40 minutes and you have a warm, rich supper ready to hit the table.

Spring Recipe

There are two vegetables that start with the letter “A” that I can’t get enough of each spring- Asparagus and Artichokes. But while fresh asparagus couldn’t be easier to cook, I can’t say the same for artichokes. In fact, I’m not sure I’ve ever cooked fresh artichokes. Except baby artichokes in a crawfish boil.

I always use frozen or canned artichoke hearts so there’s really no reason for me to limit most of my artichoke eating to spring, but it just seems fitting to.

I like to cook casseroles at least once a week. They tend to be easy to make, satisfying, and leftovers almost always heat up well. And this is such a delicious chicken casserole!

More Recipes With Artichokes


  • Make it spicy by adding 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes.
  • Use lightly steamed asparagus or broccoli in place of artichokes.
  • Make it cheesier. Add half a cup of shredded cheddar cheese or swiss cheese.
  • Add spinach. Either lightly saute some fresh spinach or use frozen spinach that you have thawed. Be sure to squeeze the water out of it.

Recipe Tips

  • If your chicken breasts are really large, either cut each one into 2 thinner pieces or pound them out. I find the easiest way to pound them out is to place a piece of plastic wrap over them and pound them with a heavy rolling pin. I have a marble rolling pin that I love for this.

How To Store Leftovers

Leftovers will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4 days and can be reheated in a microwave.
