The entire family loves Cheesy chicken potato casserole recipe!

It is comfort food at its best! There is just something about this casserole that is so delicious. Curl up after a long day with a plate of this tasty cheesey chicken potato casserole. It is just so cheesy and delicious. It just makes you feel better!

Another one of our favorite comfort food recipes is Crock Pot Chicken Noodle Soup. I made this one night for dinner and took a container to a friend that had been feeling under the weather. You just never know what someone might be going through. Being organized and having a menu plan has allowed me to not only to get dinner on the table for my family but to bless others.

Variation Ideas:

This recipe truly is just so easy! You can even use rotisserie chicken to make this recipe even quicker! I like to buy a rotisserie chicken and have it for dinner one night with Grilled Green Beans and Foil Pack Grilled Potatoes!

My family loves the cornflakes topping but you can substitute crushed Ritz crackers instead. It is just as good! Just use what you have on hand! I have even mixed both because I didn’t have enough for the recipe. You can also top this casserole with bacon, jalapeño’s, the options are endless! Sometimes we even add in some chopped onions.

  1. Looking forward to make these recipes. I know my family would love them.


  3. This was really good and is going to become one of my favorites. That being said, I had several substitutions. First, I’m not a big fan of sour cream and 2 cups of it sounded overwhelming so I substituted a partial can of cream of mushroom soup for the second cup of sour cream. Second, I added a teaspoon of Better than Bouillion. Third, I’m not supposed to eat salt so I substituted 1/4 cup of diced jalapeños to add flavor. Fourth, I don’t keep cornflakes in the house, so I substituted an equal amount of crushed potato chips in the butter. Word of advice, had to cover with foil about half way through because it was getting too brown.

  4. I don’t want to use corn flakes nor potato chips for topping. Any other suggestive substitutes?? I was wondering about bread crumbs for topping! Any thoughts??

  5. This recipe was really good but I made a few changes. I was rushed & didn’t have time to cook a chicken. So on my way home i bought a Deli rotisserie chicken. I skinned, de-boned & shredded it. After I blended all of the ingredients, I added a little more pepper, salt, a small chopped onion, a Tbles of garlic powder & a Tbles of onion powder. I Blended it all really good. & poured it in my pan, greased with butter. I let it bake for 30 minutes then I added the topping and baked another 30 minutes. The casserole didn’t look done so I loosely put some foil on top & baked it another 10 min. It was perfect and so delicious
    I served it with seasoned lima beans and corn bread. ?

    I’ve made this several times. It’s really excellent I don’t thaw the hash browns. I really like it. Next time I’m going to add red pepper flakes, and cook some bacon, and use the bacon drippings to sauté celery and onions and, of course, add the bacon in the end. Also, I never have corn flakes so I use crushed potato chips on top and add a little Parmesan on top of the chips.Should be even better.

  7. 5 stars
    This is my family’s new favorite, I can’t count how many times I’ve made this already!

  8. 5 stars
    Someone asked if the hash browns should be thawed first. Definitely yes. If they are frozen, the other ingredients won’t mix in well. Ask me how I know this, LOL.

  9. Anyone ever use cream of celery instead?? If so, did it still turn out okay? I really don’t like cream of chicken or cream of mushroom? Thanks in advance ?

  10. Sheila – I haven’t used cream of celery before but I think that it would still taste good!

  11. Y’all.. how many bags of the hasbrowns are you supposed to use? I definitely just used one. It’s in the oven now. I’m scared that I was supposed to use two. The recipe says 1 20 oz bags of hash browns. Help.

  12. Do you freeze it uncooked or after it’s cooked and if you plant freeze one do you double the recipe or just split it in half and freeze half?

  13. If you are going to freeze one do you freeze it before it’s cooked or afterwards? Also do you double the recipe to freeze one or just split it in half to freeze one?

  14. 5 stars
    Very good. The corn flake burn easily. The second time I cooked it, I put it in for 40 minutes then put the corn flakes on for 10 minutes. Even 10 minutes was too much time. Next time I will only go 5 minutes. Maybe add green chilies too.

  15. I am making several meals for a friend. (Cancer) I want to make the hash brown casserole. Can this be frozen for later use?

  16. Please help if you dont get hashbrowns what can you then use for this recipe? Please want to make it but dont want to make it if i dont have a proper guideline please

  17. 5 stars
    Made this tonight. Only thing I did different was use crushed up bacon cheddar it’s as the topping, and I highly recommend. This dinner is fantastic!

  18. How would you cook from frozen? Longer than an hour I would imagine. Or do you thaw first, then cook like regular?

  19. Can I freeze the leftovers as there is just the two of us? It looks delicious! Thank you

  20. Tammy – Generally, when I make this casserole, I make 2, 1 for dinner and 1 to freeze for a future dinner. I have a large family so we can generally eat the entire casserole for 1 meal. Thank you.

  21. I freeze it before it’s cooked and I make 2 casseroles. I cook 1 for dinner and freeze the other. Thank you.

  22. Nalize – You can make this recipe with shredded or sliced potatoes if you don’t have access to frozen hashbrowns. Thank you.

  23. When I freeze this recipe, I let the casserole defrost in the refrigerator overnight before cooking it to make sure that it defrosts. Thank you.

  24. Phyllis – Yes, you can freeze the leftovers and heat them up in the oven when you’re ready to enjoy them again. Thank you.

  25. I think it’s so funny how people see a recipe and then change everything about it. I made this just like it said and we loved it! Will def make again!

  26. 5 stars
    This is great! 1st time I made it I didn’t have frozen hashbrowns so used 1 little milk carton type box of Costco’s dried hashbrowns, followed the directions of filling the box with hot water for 12 minutes, then added them instead of frozen. Next week having company and making it for the 4th time the same way. Used mixture of crushed Ritz crackers and crispy onion topping. YUM!

  27. This was GREAT. I’ve shared this with multiple family members. Thank you for this great dinner.

  28. 5 stars
    I have made this recipe multiple times with corn flakes or gluten free bread crumbs and it is a huge family favorite. I have to double the recipe to make sure we have left overs since my family cant get enough of it.

  29. 5 stars
    This is a casserole I get a craving for, because it is so good!! Great flavor, and every time I’ve made this, it always hits the spot!

  30. 5 stars
    What a delicious dish. My family loved it. I used the garlic butter ritz crackers on the top and I didn’t have milk so I omitted it.

  31. You can use frozen Ore-Ida Potatoes O’Brien instead of the hash browns!!! So delicious!!! ?

  32. Awesome Dinner!! Only 2 of us so now we have extra yummy dinners in the freezer!!
    Thanks for sharing!!

  33. 5 stars
    I didn’t have cream of chicken so I used cream of mushroom and added a small amount of Chicken Better Than Bouillon for the chicken flavor. Next time I will not add salt or not use the bouillon as it was a little salty with the soup and bouillon. I added a package of frozen mixed veggies and it made it a one dish meal, which is a plus for me. Everyone loved it! Great recipe!

  34. 5 stars
    This is one of my husband and my favorite casserole recipes. It’s full of flavor and I’ll make this when it’s snowing outside. Will serve it with dinner rolls or a loaf of Italian bread.

  35. I love this recipe! I add an onion to it and only use about 1 cup of fat free sour cream (not a big fan of sour cream and between the soup and sour cream, one cup is plenty). I use 2% cheddar and rotisserie chicken breast meat in an effort to cut fat and calories where I can. I did take another commenter’s advice and only put the cornflakes/butter on for the last fifteen minutes of the baking time. So easy and delicious. I have made it with fresh potatoes before when I had some to use up. It wasn’t bad but I prefer the frozen hash browns – the consistency is a little better.
