Freezer to Oven Cheesy chicken Casserole

I am always on the lookout for  quick and easy meals that my family will love. When I found Tyson® Chicken Strips at Walmart, I knew I had to pick some up and keep them in the freezer for those nights when I forgot to take our original meal out to defrost. This happens quite often on busy days so I didn’t want just a back up plan, I wanted a delicious meal that my family would love!

I was excited about all of the quick meal options and I knew the first meal I wanted make was a Cheesy Chicken Casserole using Tyson® Chicken Strips.

I also picked up a couple of bags of Tyson® Chicken Nuggets, they are fully cooked so all I need to do is heat and serve, perfect for those really busy nights when I need an easy meal solution that is packed with protein!

They are also a great mid-day snack when you want to enjoy a great protein powered snacking option.

I was also excited about the sticker on the front of the packages! Buy ANY TWO (2) specially marked packages of Tyson® Chicken Products or State Fair® Corn Dogs and you can receive up to $9.00 toward one child admission to see The Peanuts Movie Only in Theaters.

  1. My husband just mentioned to me that I had nothing in the freezer for him, while I fly back home to Canada for three weeks. Maybe I should forward this casserole recipe over to him. I mean, he surprises me in the kitchen (When I’m gone…how convenient lol) and this seems like a fairly easy recipe to follow, right? Ugh, so yummy looking.

  2. What a delicious looking recipe. I love Tyson chicken! I usually buy the nuggets but I have never thought of combining them with anything to create a meal. Normally we are plain jane and have it with fries! lol Next time I cook these nuggets, I’m going to give this recipe a try!

  3. I love simple and easy dishes too. This would be great to prepare a head of time and just stick it in the freezer to serve. My mom loves chicken and casseroles so I will send her your idea in the next letter. I love crackers are used over the top as that sound give it great texture and taste.

  4. Wow this looks like something that would be really easy to put together kind of last minute. There are so many evenings when I just need quick and tasty and this scores on both fronts. Plus, it’s Tyson so I am sure it tastes great.

  5. I love quick and easy dinners like this. I never thought to use chicken strips like this but I know my husband would love this dinner! I am so excited to see the new peanuts movie.

  6. Looks tasty and easy to make. I think my family would love this recipe.

  7. My grandmother made a recipe similiar to this but with frozen mixed vegetables. YUM. I loved it so I know I’d love this recipe. I’m printing it to make for the family this weekend. Thanks!!

  8. Clay Cassin says:

    I have never thought of using precooked chicken strips in a casserole. They are pretty nasty on their own, but I can see where burying them in with a bunch of other ingredients could not only make them palatable, but could actually be quite tasty. Thanks for the idea!

    • Well thank you for your honesty. I also have found a lot of chicken strips to be really hard to chew and tuff. I must say that these were really good! Totally worth a try and I am one of those people who never read directions on anything but I followed them closely on here and that may be the key to delicious chicken!
