Winter is Casserole Time

Hi! I hope you are having a great week so far. We have been having some crazy cold weather here. I don't know about you but once winter hits I hear the call of the casserole and stew. I just love cozy, stick to your rib meals. Don't they just warm you from inside out?

I have this great recipe for you, Chicken Alfredo Casserole. It is so easy, utilizing rotisserie chicken and most items you have in your pantry. Better yet, you can also make this ahead of time and then finish it when you are ready to bake. It is a great weekday dinner.

  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 Cup chopped onion
  • 1 Jar Alfredo pasta sauce (16 oz)
  • 1/4 Cup milk
  • 2 Cups chopped cooked chicken (rotisserie)
  • 2 Cups frozen broccoli florets, thawed
  • 1 Can sliced carrots (you can also add peas, diced potatoes – make it your own)
  • 2 Cups frozen broccoli florets, thawed
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil leaves
  • 1 Can Pillsbury refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (7.5 oz)
  • 1 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 8-inch square (2-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Cook mushrooms and onion in butter, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in Alfredo sauce, milk, chicken, broccoli (other veggies you my like) and basil. Cook until mixture is thoroughly heated and bubbly, stirring constantly. Spoon into baking dish.
  3. Separate dough into 10 biscuits. Cut each biscuit in half crosswise. Arrange around edge of baking dish, overlapping slightly. Drizzle biscuits with melted butter; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  4. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.
    Make ahead version
  1. Mix all casserole ingredients the night before (set 2). Place in refrigerator.
  2. When you are ready to eat, cook casserole for 40 minutes or until bubbly. 
  3. Remove from oven, then follow from step 3 above.

 What meals do you make when the weather gets cold?
