My family loves this and it's great for pot lucks. It freezes well and I frequently divide it into smaller casseroles for the 2 of us.

How to Make Make ahead Chicken Casserole

Step-by-Step

  • 1Boil chicken breasts until done (I like to add some poultry seasoning to the water). Cool then cut into pieces.
  • 2In a large bowl put rice, chicken, green peppers, celery, water chestnuts, and onions.
  • 3In a small bowl wisk together soup, chicken broth, mayonnaise, and almonds. Add to rice and chicken mixture.
  • 4Mix all together well. Cover and store in refrigerator overnight.
  • 5When ready to bake pour into sprayed 9x12 casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour uncovered. Remove and put crushed potatoe chips on top and bake another 15 minutes.
  • 6NOTE: This can be made early in the day, refrigerated, and baked at dinner time. I think the longer it sits the better it tastes.
