Hash Brown Chicken Casserole Recipe

Hash Brown Chicken Casserole
This hash brown chicken casserole makes an easy and delicious dinner to serve any night of the week. This amazing casserole is loaded with shredded hash browns, chicken, peas, carrots, corn and a cream of chicken soup mixture. The casserole is topped with crushed corn flakes for a nice crunch. For the chicken, you can roast the chicken, use leftover cooked chicken or the meat from a cooked rotisserie chicken if you want to save time. I roasted boneless skinless chicken breasts and sliced them for this recipe. If you are looking for a tasty casserole dish to prepare, give this one a try. Enjoy.

    Do you cover this when baking?

    Hi Pam,

    I did not cover it. I think it will turn out fine if you don’t.

    What size is a serving? You state it makes 6 servings – but it literally fills up the 9×13 dish! lol
    That’s a HUGE portion 🙂

    Mine is in the oven now and can hardly wait the 60 minutes to cook it!

    If u cook the Chicken breast first…will it still take an hour to cook in the oven?

  5. Bobby — May 7, 2016 @ 6:42 pm

    This recipe uses cooked shredded chicken. Raw chicken should not be used for this recipe. Yes, it will take one hour to cook. I hope this helps.

    Do you thaw the hash browns first or use frozen?

  7. Bobby — June 9, 2016 @ 7:49 pm

    Use frozen.

  8. Kelly — July 7, 2016 @ 6:22 am

    Can this be made ahead of time or can it be froze?

    I so wanted to make this according to the recipe but I had no shredded hash browns or corn flakes. I used the hash brown patties and put them on the bottom and all the other ingredients over them and topped it with french fried onions. This was to die for!! Thank you for the recipe, definitely a keeper!!

    So stoked to try this but after getting everything ready I realized I had no corn flakes or cheese. I substituted cheese with cheese soup and poured Seasoned bread crumbs on top with melted butter. I used grown broccoli florets. It smells and looks so amazing! I can’t wait till it cooks so we can dive in! Thank you so much for the great recipe

    When do you add the chicken into the casserole?

  12. Martha Castro — October 7, 2016 @ 1:43 pm

    I have a picky grown son checked all the ingredients and decided he would like this. Years ago I had a chicken and hash brown casserole we loved but moving cross.country I lost it. This sounds absolutely fabulous it’s in the oven cooking now!!!

  13. Julie — January 14, 2017 @ 5:23 pm

    This is in the overn now! I can’t wait to taste it. I was just curious how 2 lbs of hash browns was to fit into a 9×13. I had to use another casserole dish because it wa over flowing. Anyone else?

  14. FireFghtrsGirl — February 26, 2017 @ 5:38 pm

  15. Tamm — August 22, 2017 @ 2:17 pm

  16. Mary — August 23, 2017 @ 2:12 pm

    Is this recipe big enough for two 9×13 pans? One to eat now and I to freeze?

  17. Mary — November 27, 2017 @ 9:08 am

    All the comments, but no results. Wonder if anyone liked the turn out? Is it actually good.

  18. Amanda — December 1, 2017 @ 6:12 pm

    This is one of our new favorites. I am making it for the 4th time! It’s delicious!

  19. Kim — January 1, 2018 @ 3:35 pm

    Just made this. Loved the taste of the chicken mixture but the hash browns were soggy, which I didn’t like. I am going to try the chicken mixture over biscuits next time.

  20. deb — February 20, 2018 @ 2:52 pm

    I think next time I will add more milk. Didn’t melt into hashbrowns like I would have liked.maybe even mix hash browns with rest of ingredients.tasted good but chiken got a little lost so o will season more next time.

  21. Julie 9 — March 16, 2018 @ 10:32 pm

    Made this thinking grandkids would like this. Even too bland for them. Nothing to rave about here. Will not make again.

  22. Sallyjojo — October 4, 2018 @ 7:00 pm

    Thanks so much for posting, it was simple, easy and tasty!

  23. Karen — December 19, 2018 @ 8:17 pm

    I’m not sure why people bother posting that something looks delicious and that you can’t wait to try it. All anyone cares about is how good it actually is.
    Having just finished this dinner, I felt a review was in need. This was the most flavorless dish that I have made in recent memory. Perhaps some onion or other spices could save it, but it’s doubtful! The whole family ate it, but everyone said it was not good and totally bland. If you are brave enough to try it, keep in mind this is a lifetime supply. I cut the recipe in half and still had too much for a family of 4. The crushed corn flakes will burn if you put them on at the beginning. I put them on and within 10 minutes had to cover with foil to keep from burning. I really wish there was something positive here, but my husband actually grabbed the box of corn flakes and dumped some on top of his just to try and give it some more crunch and flavor!
