Homemade Hearty and Warming Crack Chicken Casserole

1. Crack Chicken Casserole

We had crack chicken casserole so much when I was growing up. It’s delicious, uses only a few ingredients, and is insanely easy to make. 

It’s full of chopped chicken, ranch salad dressing mix, shredded cheddar, bacon, sour cream, cream of chicken soup, Ritz crackers, and butter.

Every bite is full of salty, cheesy, chicken goodness.

3. No-Peek Chicken

The first thing people always ask me is why we call this one no-peek chicken.

It’s because once you prepare it and stick it in the oven, you won’t even have to peek in and check on it! 

Plus, it only takes 10 minutes to prepare. The rice is creamy and fluffy, and the chicken is tender and juicy.

This casserole is basically chicken noodle soup, only in casserole form.

It still has soft, tender egg noodles, chunks of chicken, peas, carrots, seasonings, and more. 

Instead of a broth base, though, you’ll have a creamy cheese and cream of chicken soup base.

It makes it richer and more filling than traditional chicken noodle soup.

21. Keto Tuscan Chicken Casserole

Casseroles are excellent because they’re usually filling, well-balanced in nutritional value, and relatively easy to make.

But they usually aren’t low-carb or keto-friendly. This keto Tuscan chicken casserole is both, however. 

With only 3.1 carbs per serving, you can’t beat this cheesy chicken dish. It looks (and tastes) like it comes from a five-star restaurant.
