Notes

How do you make rotisserie chicken at home?
I make the best "rotisserie" chicken at home - either in my air fryer or my crock pot! It makes the juiciest chicken - I shred it up and keep it in the fridge for salads, pastas and this recipe!
 
Can you reheat Chicken Casserole
I like to reheat this in the oven or air fryer – mainly because of the cracker topping. You can definitely reheat in the microwave – but you might just want to add some fresh crackers after you take it out so it has that crunch factor!
Can you add vegetables?
Of course! I have added frozen peas and carrots many times (before you add the cracker topping) and it bakes just fine. You could also add broccoli, cauliflower or even green beans!
How can I make this healthier?
You could use reduced calorie cream of mushroom soup, lowfat sour cream or nonfat Greek yogurt and even lower fat Ritz!
Can I use cream of chicken instead of cream of mushroom?
Yup – I just LOVE mushrooms!
Can I use leftover turkey?
Yup – leftover turkey or ham would be great too!
