Everybody loves chicken, and everybody loves chicken casseroles. These one dish meals are quick, easy, delicious, and nutritious. When you make a casserole for dinner, all you need is a nice green or fruit salad and some crusty bread for texture and temperature contrast and you've got yourself a meal. These recipes are inexpensive too. They're a great way to stretch a pound of chicken to feed more than four people. Enjoy these easy recipes and use your creativity to create your own variations. Then be sure to write down your creation so it isn't lost in the mists of time.

This rich and creamy dish is hearty and delicious. A cheesy streusel top adds crunchy texture and really finishes the dish to perfection. A blend of frozen vegetables makes preparing the casserole easy and adds lots of nutrition.

2. Chicken Potato Bake

This is another 'controversial' recipe. Apparently, you either love it or you hate it! I myself love it. It's rich, mild, and creamy with a comforting flavor and texture. You could certainly jazz it up if you'd like by adding more seasonings, but I like it just like it is.

3. Crockpot Chicken and Sweet Potatoes

Hey, you can make a casserole in a crockpot! It's still a one dish meal. This super nutritious recipe has a lot of wonderful flavor. I love the combination of sweet potatoes with preserves. Serve it over cooked brown rice or orzo pasta for a delicious meal.

Can you tell my family loves chicken, potatoes, and creamy sauces? Well gee, who doesn't? This recipe was created when company was coming over unexpectedly and I didn't have time to get to the store. I always have these ingredients on hand, and for good reason.

5. Chicken Risotto

Yes, risotto is technically a casserole! I love this simple recipe, mainly because it doesn't demand arborio rice, which is hard to find and expensive. I've tried this recipe with regular rice and with arborio rice, and I like the regular rice version better. You could try both and have a taste test yourself!

6. Chicken Divan Casserole

This huge casserole serves a crowd, with just a couple of cubes of cooked, cubed chicken. The combination of pasta and chicken is really wonderful. Serve with some garlic toast and a big green salad for a great dinner.

8. Santa Fe Chicken

This popular recipe is easy to make and everybody loves it. It has all the flavors and textures of chicken fajitas but it's much simpler. You can make it ahead of time too. Just assemble and refrigerate up to 24 hours. When you're ready to eat, pop it in the oven, add an extra 10 minutes or so of baking time, and eat!

9. Chicken Pesto Casserole

Potatoes, peas, mushrooms, and onions add flavor and nutrition to this simple casserole. Purchased Alfredo sauce and pesto make it easy and delicious.

10. Crockpot Jambalaya

Orzo pasta cooks right in the crockpot in this easy and flavorful recipe. As with all recipes, taste it before you serve it and season it to your liking. If you like it spicy, use the larger amounts of Tabasco sauce, add some jalapenos, or more cayenne pepper.
