You can definitely add extra ingredients to the Chicken Spectacular Casserole. You might want to toss in a few other veggies, such as peas, frozen diced carrots, or whole kernel corn. You might also want to add some French fried onions to the top of the casserole to give it more of a crunch.

Although chicken breast is good to use in this recipe, you can always use chicken thighs or whatever chicken you have leftover on hand. However, you should remove any skin and bones from the chicken before cooking it and adding it to the casserole. If you have rotisserie chicken at home, you might want to add it to a mixer and shred it into pieces before putting it in this casserole. It will contribute to the flavor of the dish!

To save time and money, you might consider making a chicken meal the night before and using the leftovers for this dish. Some meals to try are Whole Lemon Garlic Chicken, Engagement Chicken, Mediterranean Chicken, Maple Chicken and Sweet Potatoes, or Chicken Drumsticks and Veggies. Of course, I have a lot more chicken recipes that you can use, these are just a few.

How to Make-Ahead and Freeze the Casserole

If you want to prepare the casserole in advance, assemble the casserole completely, then before you bake it cover it with aluminum foil and then a layer of plastic wrap. You can also make it in a freezer-safe and oven-safe container. Place it in the freezer to store it for up to six months. When you need to reheat it, move it to the fridge the evening before you want to cook it. Then bake it in the oven as directed below.
