Cooking Tips & Tricks 

Easy dinner

Can I Make My Own Shredded Chicken? Yes. Use boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs for the casserole. Season the chicken with salt, pepper, and any other desired spices before cooking. Let it rest then shred it with a fork. Cook the chicken thoroughly before adding it to the casserole. You can bake, grill, or pan-fry the chicken for a nice sear and flavor.

I Want A More Flavorful Sauce! Ok. Warm the Velveeta cheese for easier melting. You can also mix in other cheeses like cheddar or Monterey Jack for added flavor complexity.

Vegetable Additions: Consider adding vegetables like broccoli, bell peppers, or spinach to the casserole for added nutrients and color.

Layering: Layer the cooked chicken and any vegetables in the casserole dish before pouring the cheese sauce over them. This helps distribute the flavors evenly.

Toppings: Adding a crunchy topping like crushed crackers, breadcrumbs, or even French fried onions can provide a nice contrast in texture.

Storage Tips & Hacks

If you have leftovers, allow the casserole to cool before refrigerating it in an airtight container. It can usually be kept in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. 

If you want to store the casserole for a longer period, consider freezing it. Portion the casserole into individual servings or family-sized portions, wrap tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil, and place in a freezer-safe container or resealable plastic bag. Frozen casseroles can typically be stored for around 2-3 months.

When you’re ready to enjoy the frozen casserole, transfer it to the refrigerator to thaw overnight. This helps maintain the texture and flavor. Reheating from frozen may result in uneven cooking.

Reheating: To reheat, place the casserole in a preheated oven at around 350°F (175°C) for about 20-25 minutes until it’s heated through. You can also use a microwave, but be cautious to heat it in intervals, stirring in between, to ensure even heating.
