Easy Cheesy Chicken Casserole

This is a great quick and easy recipe for any night of the week (or weekend)! And it tastes super yum! I like to serve it with sautéed green beans tossed in olive oil and garlic salt.

One of my favorite seasonings is McCormick’s Perfect Pinch Original Chicken. It’s just some basic spices all mixed together for convenience. I love the taste it gives to chicken. Guud stuff. (Check out all the brands I like to use as well as best prices here!) So after spraying my dish with olive oil, I then chop off all the yucky parts of the chicken, then cut into bite size pieces. Then sprinkle the magic seasoning all over.

**Update on McCormick’s Perfect Pinch Seasoning…they no longer make the Original Chicken, however I think they just disguised it in their new Rotisserie Chicken Seasoning! 🙂 It’s basically the same seasoning, I checked. Yay!

Next I pour in the chicken broth and cheeses.

Time for the crust. Took a few tries but finally found the perfect combo. Crust is the important part, obviously. 😉

Chicken Bake 3

It doesn’t have to be perfect, just spread it over the cheese. Then bake!

Chicken Bake 4

Comfort food. 🙂

    As of January 1, 2014, they have discontinued the original chicken Perfect Pinch seasoning…
    Figured I’d sprinkle a little paprika, garlic salt and onion powder…

    Hey! Is this an S meal for THM?? Looking at the ingredients, I think it is. But I am really new to THM meals, so I had to ask first! It looks really yummy, too! 🙂

    Hello. I was thinking of making this for a friend whose father just passed away. Does it refrigerate and reheat well?

    I made this Saturday night for two preteens, two teens, and me. I doubled the recipe. They devoured it – even my picky 15 year old with sensory issues! This is definitely a keeper.

    Hi, what could I sub for the flax meal please, or should I just use more almond flour? I also have the thm baking blend? Thank-you

      Hi Erin, I apologize for the delay in my response! Yes, you could use more almond flour! I haven’t tried this but I’m sure it will taste fine!
