We love a warm, home-cooked dinner especially when it comes in a casserole dish. Every good Southern cook has a recipe box filled with casserole dishes ready to whip up at the drop of a hat for any occasion—whether it’s a weeknight family dinner or church potluck. They’re affordable and come together quickly, plus you can make them ahead of time and freeze. You can put just about anything into a casserole and chicken seems to find its way into many of them, so we’re not afraid to use a store-bought rotisserie chicken. We love the ease a rotisserie chicken provides, making even an easy recipe even easier. We have an arsenal of rotisserie chicken recipes that’ll fill your bellies, but it’s hard to beat the casseroles. From classics like Poppy Seed Chicken to new takes on traditional dishes like Chicken Fajita Casserole, we have something for everyone. So pick up a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store and try one of these delicious rotisserie chicken casseroles for your next weeknight dinner. We promise the whole family will be coming back for seconds.
