  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup crushed cornflakes or breadcrumbs (optional topping)


Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Preheat Oven

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

  1. Prepare the Ingredients

If you haven't already, cook and shred your chicken. Thaw the hashbrowns if they are still frozen.

  1. Mix the Ingredients

In a large bowl, combine the cooked chicken, hashbrowns, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, melted butter, chopped onion, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir until well mixed.

  1. Transfer to Baking Dish

Pour the mixture into a greased 9x13-inch baking dish and spread it out evenly.

  1. Add Topping (Optional)

If you want a crunchy topping, sprinkle the crushed cornflakes or breadcrumbs over the top of the casserole.

  1. Bake

Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the casserole is bubbling.

Tips for Extra Deliciousness

  • Use sharp cheddar cheese for a more pronounced cheese flavor.
  • Add cooked bacon bits for an extra smoky taste.
  • Mix in some frozen peas or bell peppers for added color and nutrition.


  • Vegetarian Option

Substitute the chicken with sautéed mushrooms or a plant-based chicken alternative. Replace the cream of chicken soup with cream of mushroom soup.

  • Spicy Kick

Add a can of diced green chilies or some jalapeños to the mixture for a spicy twist.

  • Low-Carb

Substitute hashbrowns with shredded cauliflower for a low-carb version.

You can also freeze the casserole for up to 3 months. Just make sure to wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and then with aluminum foil.
