I had an entire post written for tonight but this recipe was so good I put that one on hold and decided to write this one up quickly. Especially since school has just started for many and will start soon for others. I found a recipe and then changed it up figuring out that the person who prepared the original recipe must have some skinny rotisserie chickens where they live because it made WAY more than they wrote out in the recipe with me needing to add in more ingredients. Lucky mom – I called her and said she needn’t fix herself any supper tonight as Mr. Picky Eater would bring over a full 9×9 casserole for her to eat.
While I always give proper credit to the originator of the recipe, I won’t this time since the measurements were all wrong and I changed it a great deal.
Rotisserie Chicken Casserole
Meat from 1 Rotisserie Chicken, shredded
3 cans of cream of chicken soup – you could use any “cream of” soup but CofC is about all Mr. Picky Eater will consume.
3 Cups shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
3 Green Onions, Cleaned and Chopped up
Salt and Pepper
½ envelop of Hidden Valley Ranch powdered dressing mix (dry)
1 lb. of pre-cooked Bacon Crumbles or fry some up yourself – the pre-cooked just saves time.
1 lb. Fusilli pasta – squiggly kind
Preheat the oven to 400F and set up two 9×9 pans or one 15×9 sprayed with non-stick spray.
Put shredded chicken into a big bowl or lay out on baking sheet and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and the HVR dry dressing mix then mix it up good and let it set.
Prepare pasta as directed then put pasta, cans of soup, 2 cups of cheese, onion, most all bacon, and the chicken.
Mix well – you will need a big pasta pot to do this in because that’s a lot of food!
Using a ladle, dip the mixture into pan then sprinkle with bacon and finally the cheese.
Put into the oven and bake for 25 minutes or until the cheese has melted and started to turn brown.
Let it sit for about 10 minutes after you take it out and then serve with a salad! It was so delicious there was none left and we will be making it again soon!
