How to make chicken casserole:

1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Arrange diced chicken in a baking dish and season with salt and pepper.

2. In a bowl, combine chicken stock, ranch seasoning, cheddar, heavy whipping cream, and cream cheese – mix well to get a smooth texture.

3. Pour the ranch mixture over the diced chicken breasts and toss to combine. Pour any excess ranch mixture on top. Sprinkle the crispy French onion on top of the chicken casserole.

4. Bake the chicken casserole uncovered for 30 to 40 minutes – until cooked through. Sprinkle with red chili pepper flakes if you like. Serve the chicken casserole warm with a side of cauliflower rice or grilled veggies. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the baked ranch casserole recipe

  • If you’re short on time, you can make the chicken casserole ahead of time and refrigerate it until ready to bake. Add a few extra minutes to the cooking time if the dish is still chilled.
  • For an even quicker option, you can use pre-cooked diced chicken or rotisserie chicken for this chicken casserole recipe. Shorten the cooking time accordingly.
  • To make the casserole 100% gluten-free, use gluten-free crispy onion instead of regular.

Can this chicken casserole be frozen?

The Baked Ranch Chicken Casserole can be frozen before or after baking:

  • To freeze before baking, assemble the casserole in a freezer-safe dish and cover tightly with foil or plastic wrap. It can be kept in the freezer for up to 3 months. To bake, thaw the casserole overnight in the refrigerator before baking according to the instructions.
  • To freeze after baking, allow the casserole to cool, then cover and freeze in an airtight container or freezer-safe dish. Reheated covered with foil in the oven at 350ºF (180ºC) for 30 minutes.

What to serve with the chicken casserole?

This chicken casserole pairs well with various side dishes, such as a tossed green salad, steamed vegetables, or cauliflower rice, for a low-carb option.

    I made it according to directions, but when I took it out of the oven, it was VERY soupy. I let it cool a bit to see if it would thicken up. It was flavorful and my husband and children really enjoyed it, but it was still soupy. I am going to make it again as the flavor was wonderful, but this next time, I'm going to add more chicken and reduce the amount of liquids to try to get a thicker result.

    Made according to directions excepted added more chicken and it still turned out like a sauce. Very tasty but soupy.

    I tried it and the favor is on point, but I made my own heavy cream so I think my consistency was off. Mine was more like a sauce, but it tasted good. Thank you.
