Chunky Blue Cheese Chicken Casserole Recipe

This chunky blue cheese chicken casserole recipe is just what the doctor ordered for combining blue cheese and chicken! Who doesn’t enjoy the tangy taste of fresh blue cheese? It’s not just for salads, you can also incorporate it into rices, sauces, and casseroles like this one.

If you are not a fan of blue cheese, you can also use shredded cheddar cheese. To make this recipe even quicker and easier, you can prepare the rice and chicken ahead of time (or use leftovers), and then just add a few more ingredients to the casserole dish before you put it in the oven. For an extra crispy crunch on the top of the casserole, top with toasted bread crumbs or croutons.

If you like your chicken spicy, sautee the chicken or add 3 tablespoons of Red Hot Sauce to the casserole before baking- to kick it up a notch!

    Tried this the other day, and while tasty it came out VERY runny. I’m planning to try again, but before doing so — is the 4 cups milk a typo? Seems like an awful lot of liquid with the rice being pre-cooked.

    Thanks!

      Hi Tristessa,
      It should not be that runny, are you sure you mixed the milk with the flour before pouring it over the rest of the ingredients? If it is too liquidy you can decrease the milk.
