Creamy Chicken Casserole

Chicken Casseroles are always a good idea! This Creamy Chicken Casserole Recipe with mushrooms, bacon, and cheese is a really, really great idea!

OVEN BAKED CREAMY CHICKEN CASSEROLE:

I love easy casserole recipes. Having five kids, how can I not love casseroles? This is a favorite of mine because you can prepare everything the night before and then just bake the chicken casserole in the oven the following day.

This is especially a great recipe if you go to church Sunday mornings. I prepare everything per instructions the night before and keep refrigerated (covered). Then, I just place it in the oven to bake at 320°F when we leave for church. As soon as I get home I remove the foil, turn up the heat and it finishes cooking by turning a golden color on top and starts to bubble. By the time we change, set the table and are ready to have lunch, the chicken casserole is done cooking (we’re gone about 2.5 hours).

Per instructions, letting the chicken marinade in the milk mixture for a few hours is preferable (or overnight). However, if you don’t have the time for that, skip that part. The chicken just won’t be as tender, they’ll still be wonderful.

What can I serve with the CHICKEN BREAST CASSEROLE with?

Our favorite side for this easy casserole would have to be mashed potatoes. The casserole has the cream of chicken sauce that I use as gravy over the mashed potatoes. It’s amazing!

If you don’t like mashed potatoes, rice or pasta of choice may also be used. Pour the sauce from the chicken over the pasta or rice as gravy – so good!

If you have picky eaters, you can skip the mushrooms or leave it on half of the casserole. My kids are not fans of mushrooms (no idea how they aren’t). So, I just load one side of the casserole with extra mushrooms for the Mr. and I. (No complaints here).

Can I substitute the toppings?

The bacon and mushrooms and NOT a must for this recipe. If we make this on a weekday, I rarely add the bacon. We usually do bacon and mushrooms for special occasions. Just add extra cheese if you’re a cheese lover.

CHICKEN CASSEROLE FOR PARTIES:

This easy creamy chicken casserole dish is always a huge hit at our large family gatherings. We have this casserole at most of our family gatherings and parties. It’s so nice that you can prepare everything the night before and just bake it the day of the party.

So, if you are planning a party and will be busy the day of the party, you’ve found yourself the perfect recipe to serve. It’s a KEEPER! You’re welcome. <3

(P.S. This is an OLDER recipe that really needed some new photographs and bumped up to a newer post. :). ENJOY!..)

CAN I FREEZE CHICKEN CASSEROLE?

Yes, this is a perfect casserole dish to freeze. Prepare per instructions. Cover dish well and freeze.

Remove casserole dish from freezer and thaw before baking.

Can I make a smaller portion?

If this portion is too large for your family, just make 2 smaller casserole dishes instead of one large. Freeze one and bake the other. You’ll have a second casserole dish for a lazy evening when you don’t feel like cooking. You’re welcome;).

Easy Creamy Chicken Casserole Recipe with mushrooms, bacon, and cheese in a cream of chicken soup sauce. 

Course: Dinner
Cuisine: American
Servings: 8 servings
Calories: 419 kcal
Author: Valentina's Corner
Ingredients
  • chicken & marinade-
  • 3 chicken breasts (about 2 1/2 pounds)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • flour mixture-
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 Tbsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • cream mixture-
  • 26 oz cream of chicken soup can, family size
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • toppings-
  • 8 oz bacon, 1/2 pack, cooked
  • 6 oz mushrooms, sliced and sauteed
  • 6 oz shredded cheese, four cheese or mozzarella
  • oil for frying
Instructions
  1. Cut chicken breast into medium pieces (About 6-7 pieces per chicken). 

  2. Prepare the marinade. Combine the milk, eggs and salt. Place the chicken pieces into the mixture and let marinade 4 hours (or overnight).The longer it marinades, the softer the chicken will become.
  3. Combine the ingredients for the flour mixture; the flour, paprika, pepper and salt.

  4. Take the chicken from the marinade and coat generously in the flour mixture. (Discard of the marinade.)

  5. Add enough oil to the skillet to completely cover the bottom of the skillet, turn on med/high heat. Once the oil is hot, fry 6-8 minutes, until chicken is crispy, turning as needed. Don't crowd the skillet. (Using two skillets works quicker.)

  6. While chicken is frying prepare the cream mixture; combine cream of chicken soup, sour cream, water, salt, paprika and pepper.

  7. Once chicken cooks, transfer onto a plate lined with paper towel. 

  8. Cover the bottom of a 9"x13" dish with some of the cream.

  9. Add the chicken pieces to the casserole dish. 

  10. Completely cover with the remaining cream. (If preparing the night before and will be cooking it the following day, wait for the chicken to cool before covering with the cream.)

  11. Add half of the cheese. Add the cooked bacon and sauteed mushrooms. Sprinkle remaining cheese. 

  12. Bake 350° for 30 minutes, covered with foil. Remove foil and continue baking another 15-20 minutes until cheese melts and cream bubbles everywhere.

    Instead of mushrooms and bacon use cream of mushroom soup it makes delicious gravy on chicken and pork . Brown meat and. Add mushroom soup ( Campbell’s) Enjoy !
    Anne

    • Valentina's Corner 10/02/2018, 1:32 pm

      Thanks, Anne!

  • Sherri 09/25/2018, 3:13 am

    This looks delicious!! I am trying to cut down on carbs as much as I can. I think when I make this I will put it over zoodles or spaghetti squash.
    I think it’s great you answer each post. Really shows you care.

    • Valentina's Corner 09/25/2018, 2:26 pm

      Oh I love the idea of putting this chicken over zucchini zoodles. That sounds wonderful! Thanks for visiting our online home, Sherri.

  • Sandy 09/18/2018, 3:37 pm

    Is the Cream of Chicken soup condensed soup or re-constituted?

    • Valentina's Corner 09/18/2018, 7:47 pm

      Hello, Sandy. We use condensed canned soup for this recipe. Thank you and enjoy. 🙂

  • Pat 09/18/2018, 6:21 am

    Made this last Sunday for family dinner. Everyone loved it! I served over egg noodles with a side of broccoli. Most people put the broccoli on top and mixed in the casserole which was excellent. Next time I will just add broccoli right in when I bake it.

    • Valentina's Corner 09/18/2018, 11:39 am

      Egg noodles and broccoli sound wonderful, Pat! Thanks for sharing and the wonderful feedback.

  • Dee 09/18/2018, 2:44 am

    Hi, I’m new to cooking and have a question, could I use whole chicken breasts instead of cutting them up, skip the frying and just add the whole chicken breasts and bake it that way?

    • Valentina's Corner 09/18/2018, 11:41 am

      Dee, I don’t see why not, you make need to season the sauce more since you won’t be breading the breasts. You could even add the mushrooms whole and add some green beans. If you make it, please let me know how it turned out.

  • Pat 09/16/2018, 10:55 am

    So what happens to the marinade? It doesn’t say to discard. It doesn’t say to add stuff to it for the sauce. What happens to it?

    • Valentina's Corner 09/17/2018, 9:59 am

      The marinade is discarded. I updated the recipe card, thank you.

  • Janet Wilkinson 09/03/2018, 5:50 am

    That was just delicious, thank you! I made it exactly as printed except for cutting the paprika in half as I only had smoked paprika on hand and the casserole was a huge hit with my husband. I will definitely make this again.

    • Valentina's Corner 09/03/2018, 2:18 pm

      Janet,
      Thank you for giving the recipe a try. So glad you enjoyed it. Double the point when the hubby approves, right? 🙂 🙂

  • Carol 08/22/2018, 7:31 pm

    Why does everyone take the easy way out and use soup??? So easy to make sause from scratch!
    Soup is full of chemicals and preservatives.

    • Valentina's Corner 08/22/2018, 10:02 pm

      Hi, Carol. You are right, a homemade soup would be a wonderful substitute in this recipe. 🙂 Thanks for visiting.

  • Brenda 08/13/2018, 6:33 pm

    I have company coming tomorrow for lunch/ “dinner” and I’m going to use this recipe. I was looking for something I could make in advance tonight and this seems to be a perfect solution that will be delicious for my guests. I may even add buttered spinach as an additional side – (hoping for left overs! HA)

    • Valentina's Corner 08/13/2018, 10:15 pm

      I hope you and your company will love the recipe as much as we do! 🙂 Have a wonderful time together.

      • Brenda 08/15/2018, 5:00 pm

        It was a big hit! No leftovers! LOL! Two adult guests requested recipe!

      • Valentina's Corner 08/16/2018, 8:35 am

        That’s wonderful, Brenda. 🙂 That makes me so happy. Have a blessed day.

  • Alicia B. 08/09/2018, 10:12 pm

    This looks so delish I almost licked my phone! Can’t wait to try.

    • Valentina's Corner 08/10/2018, 7:37 pm

      Thanks, Alicia. I love it! I often wish I had that gift of just reaching through the phone and indulging in what looked oh so amazing;).
      I hope you try the dish and love it as much as we do! 🙂

  • Sherrie 07/27/2018, 2:04 pm

    Can’t wait to try! You mention making ahead. I’d like to make the night before or day of and refrigerate. Guess bake time will be the same. Also if you add pasta, guessing it would be uncooked? About how much? Thanks!!

    • admin 07/28/2018, 10:06 am

      Hi, Sherrie. Bake temperature will remain the same. You’ll need to add about 10 more minutes to the bake time since it will be cold and will take longer to heat up. I’ve never added pasta so cannot be sure and don’t want to steer you in the wrong direction. Enjoy!

  • Lisa 07/18/2018, 7:49 pm

    I was ok. I thought I was easy to make but messy. I didn’t find it worth the time and messy.

    • admin 07/19/2018, 10:32 am

      Thanks so much for the feedback, Lisa, have a lovely day. 🙂 🙂

  • Alex Brotze 07/15/2018, 7:50 pm

    Very good but I did tweak it a little. I used peanut oil instead and I cooked the mushrooms with the bacon in an iron skillet and I used the oil from the bacon added peanut oil to cook the chicken and it worked like a charm.

    • admin 07/17/2018, 3:25 pm

      Mmmm. I love the idea of peanut oil and cast iron skillets make everything better 🙂

  • Donna King 07/11/2018, 1:26 am

    This looks amazing and i will definitely be making it for our family. It reminds me of the Alice Springs Chicken dish at Outback restaurant.

    • admin 07/11/2018, 11:25 pm

      It kind of does, Donna, good eye. 🙂
      P.S. I actually have Alice Springs Chicken Copykat on my blog. It’s phenomenal. Recipe HERE.

  • Phyllis Tomchuk 07/01/2018, 1:02 am

    I never thought that eggs milk and salt could be a marinate for Chicken. And where does all the sodium come from? In the canned chicken soup. Guess you could use the reduced sodium type, right. The recipe sounds delish. I will try it out on company that is coming this summer. For those cutting down on salt intake would be a good idea to reduce it in this recipe. I dont cook with salt, Drs. orders. Thanks for sharing………

    • admin 07/03/2018, 7:40 pm

      Thanks so much for visiting, Phyllis. Must be tough to cook without salt, I need to learn your ways :).

      • Brenda 08/13/2018, 6:27 pm

        However, for those of us who are in need of salt intake, this recipe would not be enough. So we have to get it other ways as to not compromise the outcome. We all adjust our intakes in accordance to our individual needs. My girlfriend makes her own recipe ingredients to accommodate her needs. I wonder if Campbell’s would consider a no salt addition to their creamed soups? Perhaps send them an email with inquiry.

    • Brenda 08/13/2018, 11:35 pm

      I just remembered that using curry powder in your recipes takes away the taste/desire for salt. Perhaps try.

  • Erica 06/30/2018, 10:35 pm

    Oh no I forgot the sour cream! Is it necessary or should I go get some? 😩

    • admin 06/30/2018, 11:13 pm

      You can just leave it out, it won’t be that huge of a difference. If you have heavy whipping cream, milk or half and half, you can add 3 tablespoons of one of them. Enjoy, Erica! 🙂

  • Jen 06/28/2018, 1:09 am

    Hi,
    This looks amazing! Do you think I could marinate the chicken the same way, coat it with the flour mixture, and then bake it instead of frying it? I really don’t like the hassle of frying things…

    • admin 06/28/2018, 10:51 am

      You could definitely just bake it. No need to coat it with the flour at all since the flour coating is for frying. The baking time will just be a little longer since the chicken is completely raw, however, without testing I’m not sure how much longer. Let me know if you try it. 🙂 Please let me know how you liked it.

  • Frances Wilson 06/24/2018, 6:30 pm

    I forgot to do it but I had thought about adding a small can of Chili green peppers.Next time. I also love onions too. All in all it was yummy.

    • admin 06/25/2018, 6:05 pm

      I love where you’re going with the chili green peppers, Frances. That sounds wonderful. 🙂 Thanks for visiting.

  • Natasha 06/20/2018, 10:27 am

    This recipe is absolutely amazing! We make this chicken casserole almost weekly! We love to use the creamy sauce as a gravy for our mashed potatoes. The chicken is so soft and the bacon and mushroom bring so much flavor! Thanks so much! 🙂 LOVE THIS BLOG.

    • admin 06/20/2018, 11:05 am

      Thanks so much, Natasha. I love this recipe too. It’s one of our favorites. Ha, we use the extra sauce as gravy as well. It’s like the cherry on top:). Thanks so much for visiting our online home.

      Sharon, thanks so awesome to hear. Makes me smile REAL big!!! 🙂 Thank you for visiting our online home..

  • Rebecca 05/16/2018, 5:40 pm

    Dumb question here. Does the chicken need to be cooked through in the pan or just browned?

    • admin 05/16/2018, 10:33 pm

      Just browned, it will finish baking in the oven. And, there is no such thing as dumb question :).

  • Jody 05/08/2018, 8:25 pm

      Thanks just so wonderful, Jody! Seriously made my day, smiling ear to ear. Stop by and visit our online home again. 🙂

      • Jody 06/25/2018, 3:38 pm

        My husband has been asking for this dish so I am making this again tonight. For a twist I’m adding some rotini pasta! Maybe I will keep my wife of the year recognition going.

      • admin 06/26/2018, 10:11 am

        Jody, wife of the year away for sure! 🙂 I love the adding rotini, that would be wonderful and so creamy.

  • Brenda 05/07/2018, 8:50 am

    Is it spicy bcs the paprika?

      Not at all, Brenda:)!

    This looks delicious. Definitely will make it but will add penne pasta to it.

    • admin 05/07/2018, 12:10 am

      I love where this is going, Linda;). I hope you love the recipe, stop back and visit our online home. 🙂

  • Amanda Welch 04/28/2018, 11:11 pm

    Made this tonight. It was pretty good. The only thing I’d do differently is add broccoli and potatoes next time. New family favorite.

    • admin 04/30/2018, 2:12 pm

      Oh I love the idea of potatoes and broccoli, Amanda! I am so going to have to give that a try and perhaps a new recipe will be born. Thanks for the inspiration and visiting our online home. 🙂

  • Sharon 04/24/2018, 4:55 pm

    Hello. I made this tonight. It is delicious! The coating on the chicken was great!I only made one tweak. Instead of using reg milk I marinated the chicken in buttermilk. Only because I’ve used it before for marinating. It turned out wonderfully. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thank you.

    • admin 04/25/2018, 8:03 pm

      Thanks for the wonderful feedback, Sharon. So glad to hear that <3. You are right, buttermilk is wonderful as a marinade, I'll add that to the post (Thank you.)! The chicken becomes so tender! Stop back and visit our online home again. 🙂

  • Erika 04/18/2018, 2:06 am

    Does this dish freeze well?? Has anyone tried it? Im looking for good casseroles to freeze for thise busy nights.

      Hi Erika, I have a section that talks about freezing the dish, scroll through the post and you’ll find it. 🙂 Enjoy.

  • Kim 04/16/2018, 6:01 am

    Tried this for dinner. It was very tasty! We try to eat a lot of poultry vs red meat and this will definitely be added into a regularly scheduled meal.Thanks!

    • admin 04/16/2018, 7:11 pm

      Thanks for the wonderful feedback, Kim! I so appreciate it and am so glad to hear this recipe will be a part of your regular schedule. Makes me smile, REAL big! 🙂 Have a lovely week.

  • Lexi 04/15/2018, 10:57 pm

    Hello! I’m really excited to try this recipe out, however, on hand I only have boneless skinless chicken thighs. Do you think these would subsitute ok?

    • admin 04/15/2018, 11:13 pm

      Hi, Lexi. They will work great. I’ve done that many times. I’ll add that to the notes as well. Thank you. Hope you love the recipe:)!

  • Elizabeth Collins 04/13/2018, 6:51 pm

    I made this just now… haven’t tasted it yet but my chicken looked much more ‘Paprika-ey’ than your photos? I followed the recipe to a tee should it really be 2 tablespoons?

    • admin 04/14/2018, 10:15 pm

      Elizabeth, it could just be the camera setting. That is the correct amount. 🙂 I hope you enjoyed the recipe and thank you for visiting our online home.

  • Deb 04/07/2018, 11:31 am

    Do you have to use egg?
    It looks amazing.

    • admin 04/07/2018, 12:18 pm

      No, the eggs may be omitted completely. The marinade may be skipped altogether, if in a hurry.
      You are in for a treat, Deb. This is soo delicious. 🙂

  • Lily 03/28/2018, 5:29 pm

    I made the recipe today and it’s soooo delicious
    I was worried my husband won’t like it but he ended up loving it
    Especially the mushrooms

    • admin 03/28/2018, 11:47 pm

      Thanks so much for sharing, Lily. I loved hearing your feedback. Makes me so happy. 🙂

  • Inna 09/18/2016, 1:45 pm

    Hi Valentina, ? just came across this recipe. Looks amazing!! Chicken, bacon and cheese. …Yuuuuum!! Gotta give it a try one of these days since I have all the ingredients on hand. I was also wondering, can this be a freezer friendly meal?

    • admin 09/19/2016, 2:31 pm

      HI Inna. Sure is freezer friendly. ☺ If your children don’t like some of the ingredients on top, you can just leave them off. Enjoy.. ☺

  • Irina 01/16/2016, 1:25 am

    I was wondering if you mistakenly wrote for the marinade to combine flour, eggs,salt? I think you meant milk instead of flour 🙂 I might be wrong. I’ll be making it tomorrow ????

    • admin 01/16/2016, 1:46 am

      Hehe, you’re right Irina!. 🙂 Thanks for catching that. Good thing for step-by-step pics:). You’re in for a treat. Love this casserole..

  • julia 06/19/2015, 9:06 pm

    Made this casserol but my family did not care for it, i think because cream of chicken soup has specific taste and smell to it they did not like it. It’s not something i use in my cooking or feeding my family on regular basis, wonder if it can be replaced by something else… maybe?

    • admin 06/19/2015, 11:03 pm

      Hi Julia!. I’m so sorry you didn’t exactly like. No idea what u could do differently. :/ We don’t use the cr. of chicken soup often either but this dish is a must at so many family gatherings and we have it all the time too:/. Prob. nothing u could really substitute, just a recipe u shouldn’t add to ur recipe book, hehe. Gatta keep that family happy=)..=)..=)..

      • Kim 03/24/2018, 12:11 pm

        Try cream of mushroom soup. Its what I use to substitite the chicken. Making your own is even better than canned.
