This easy cheesy hash brown chicken casserole hits the spot on a cold fall night.
Can you say comfort food?
What's easier than tossing together tender bits of roasted chicken breast, hash brown potatoes, shredded cheddar cheese and your favorite mixed vegetables.
This recipe comes together so easily and is perfect for a midweek meal and there is always plenty left over for tomorrow.
It's crispy on top and cheesy delicious inside packed with protein. The great thing about this recipe is that it is no-fail! You can let it sit in a warm oven until you are ready to eat it.
You may also enjoy my Buffalo Hash Brown Chicken Casserole if you like this recipe. It's very similar but with the addition of Buffalo wing sauce to give it spicy flair.
My husband, Brewster, is always asking for this dish. I usually pick up a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store and usually have the frozen vegetables stored in the freezer. It's also just as easy to cook up the chicken breasts ahead of time.
Sometimes I will prep this in the morning so it's ready to go in the oven at the end of the day.
This casserole is also great for football season. We plan a lot of get-togethers for Ohio State football. That's my team! I am a Buckeye fan and have had the privilege to see the team play every year.

Sometimes I will make this casserole and also throw together a few other items like my Spinach Artichoke Dip and my Chorizo & Manchego Stuffed Mushrooms. Add it to your party planning and you can have a great spread to feed a crowd.
This dish is a hit with our neighbor too.
Trish and her daughter, Norah, stopped down to borrow Brewster's notary skills and while visiting had a taste of this cheesy chicken delight. They loved it.
Luckily there is always plenty to share. We invited them to stay for dinner and they happily accepted. The recipe makes more than enough.
When the weather turns colder this dinner is a great way to warm up. I've even found ways to lighten it up if you are looking for healthier options. Just check out those suggestions in the comments below.
Serve up this casserole with a side salad for a perfect family meal. I've also taken this dish to new moms home from the hospital because it freezes well. Just pop it in the oven for an hour and it's done.
