The Large Family Freezer-Friendly Chicken Tetrazzini is the kind of dish you can serve by itself because it contains chicken, pasta, and vegetables. However, you may want to add some simple sides or an easy dessert to expand the meal, I’ve got you covered.

Serve the Freezer-Friendly Chicken Tetrazzini with a spring salad and homemade bread with garlic. You can purchase frozen garlic bread or prepare your own bread at home using this French bread recipe, butter, minced garlic, and parsley flakes.

You can also add a side of vegetables like Sheet Pan Roasted Broccoli, Collard Greens with Ham, or Garlicky Green Beans and Tomatoes.

Finally, you can add a delicious dessert to your dinner. Try adding one of my many make-ahead cookie recipes, Instant Pot Cheesecake, Baked Apples, Banana Cranberry Coffee Cake, Strawberry Trifle, or Banana Heath Pudding.

How to Freeze the Chicken Tetrazzini Casserole

To make this meal ahead and freeze it, assemble the freezer-friendly casserole as directed, but leave off the bread crumbs. Cover it with a sheet of aluminum foil, then again with plastic wrap and once more with foil. Place your casserole dish in the freezer and leave it there for up to six months. When you are ready to have this meal, you can thaw it in the fridge the day before, add the breadcrumbs on top of it, and then bake it as directed.
