Comfort food never goes out of style, and this Cheesy Chicken & Potato Casserole is essential comfort food.  Since it's one of those dishes that you can throw together without a lot of prep, it's a great way to use up leftover chicken or turkey and other ingredients you have on hand.  Just layer frozen potatoes with chicken or turkey, top with a creamy, cheesy sauce made with cream of chicken soup, sour cream and Cheddar cheese and bake.  Cheesy Chicken & Potato Casserole is also a great make-ahead dish- see the tip below for how!


cost per recipe: $15.77

  • 1 package (28 ounces) frozen potatoes with onions & peppers, thawed
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup or 98% Fat Free Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese or Colby Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 cups shredded cooked chicken or turkey
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives or thinly sliced green onion


  • Tips

    • Make Ahead Freezer Meal: Omit or reserve bacon and chives as optional toppings.  Assemble as directed (including topping with the cheese), wrap tightly (add a layer of parchment on top under the foil so the cheese won’t stick) and freeze.  From frozen, cover and bake for 1 hour 30 minutes or until hot.  Or, thaw in the refrigerator, cover and bake for 1 hour or until hot.  Sprinkle with optional bacon and green onions before serving, if desired.
    • Make this recipe even better for you by reducing the bacon to 2 slices and substituting reduced fat sour cream and 2% fat Cheddar cheese for the regular.  Also, reduce the cheese to 1 cup, using half in the soup mixture and sprinkling the rest on top as shown above.
    • You can save on prep time by mixing the chicken, potatoes and soup mixture, then spooning it into the baking dish instead of layering.
  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 375°F.  Spray a 13x9x2-inch baking dish with vegetable cooking spray.  Season the potatoes with salt and pepper.

  • Step 2

    Stir the soup, sour cream, 1 cup cheese, milk and garlic powder in a medium bowl.

  • Step 3

    Spread the potatoes in the baking dish.  Top with the chicken.  Spread the soup mixture over the chicken.  Cover the baking dish.

  • Step 4

    Bake for 40 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and the mixture is hot.  Uncover the baking dish.  Sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup cheese.

  • Step 5

    Bake, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.  Sprinkle with the bacon and chives before serving.

    My husband I devoured this casserole last night. I made a couple of minor adjustments by adding some fresh mushrooms and celery and threw in a couple of pinches of soul food seasoning. Will definitely make this one again. Empty plates and very full tummies. I highly recommend this dish.

  • Easy to make...

    Recipe was easy to make and was a hit with the family. The only thing I did flavor to taste by adding more cheese than what the recipe called for.

    maybe a little less potato but it was so good and filling I want to make it again. I halved the recipe and when I split the bag of potato it was 2 cups. For two of us I think only 1 C potato if you can't find the potato hash with onions and pepper add 1/4 C mixed onion and red pepper to the potato 1 C chicken 1/2 C cheese 1/2 can of the soup and half cup sour cream season with pepper and garlic to taste sprinkle cheese at the finish then add bacon and green onions and serve. delish
