I do love using a rotisserie chicken when I’m making this casserole

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl stir together 1 cup of the cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, melted butter, water, ranch dressing mix and about ⅔ of the bacon, combine well. Stir in the cooked chicken and the hash browns.  Spoon evenly into the prepared baking dish.

Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven, evenly sprinkle with the remaining cheese and bacon. Bake for an additional 20 to 25 minutes. Garnish with sliced green onions and enjoy!

Tips for Making This Easy Casserole

As I noted, I really love using rotisserie chicken when I’m making this loaded chicken hashbrown casserole. It’s easy to pick up and has a great flavor. You can use any chicken you have on hand.

Make sure you’ve let your frozen hashbrowns thaw. This will ensure that everything bakes well and has time to come up to heat.

Feel free to use any cheese blend you prefer!

For a Mexican twist, replace the ranch seasoning with a packet of taco seasoning.

  1. Looks really yummy!

  2. Such a great dish for a delicious quick meal! I bet you could even use leftover turkey if you wanted!

  3. Delicious and easy to make. I used italian sausage instead of chicken, used what I had. But it was really good, and warmed up well for lunch the day after.
