Can I use Chicken Thighs?
An important step in this chicken casserole recipe is to cut the chicken into bite sized pieces. Cooking the chicken breasts whole we found gave us a dry chicken, no one wants dry chicken.
You can also use chicken thighs in this easy chicken casserole recipe. I prefer it with chicken breasts but I have switched out the chicken breasts for chicken thighs when that is what I had on hand.
Fresh or Frozen Spinach?
For ease of what I had on hand, I used frozen spinach (still frozen) in this spinach chicken recipe, however, you can use fresh spinach instead if that is what you have on hand. Don’t cook it or anything, just toss it in like you would the frozen spinach, it will cook just fine in the oven. If you have full leaves, then I would suggest cutting them up before tossing them in the casserole.
What to Serve with this Chicken Casserole Recipe
One thing I like about this recipe is that there is meat and veggies already together. I like to serve it with a salad and then fresh bread. They love dipping the bread into the sauce that is leftover on their plates after eating.

Comments & Reviews
This may sound silly but I just want to double check. You cook the chicken breast first and then cut them up and mix in, right?
No you add the chicken raw
katherine hunter says
Four whole chicken breasts?
I used 4 whole chicken breast but you just have to look at the packages and pick on that has 3 pounds of chicken breast
Mary Hansen says
I would never add raw chicken to this. Dangerous!
Yes you do raw chicken because you are cooking it in the oven.
Dana Ryan Casey says
WOW! You gave a very polite response to that person. Casserole=cooked!
Jeremy Mayo says
You can’t fix stupid! Some people? SMH!!!
If I want to try and make this with out mayo, would it work? Would I up the amount of the cream cheese and sour cream maybe? Or is it not a good idea at all to take the mayo out. Thank you. I’ve made this many times for myself following the ingredients to the T, but want to make it for someone who wont eat it if it has mayo (even though you cant even tell, in my opinion)
Im sorry im not sure i have never tried
Yes!! This was awesome!! We loved the combination of flavors and will definitely make it again. Thanks!
I have used the roasted chicken meat that you can buy packaged at Costco for $12.99. It’s almost 3lbs. It has come out perfect and I have made this many times.
The parmesan cheese is that fresh grated
I have used both fresh and the one in the pantry section just depending on what i have on hand and both work well.
Has anyone tried this in a crockpot?
no but shoulds like a great idea
Just made this and it turned out runny. Any thoughts? I used frozen spinach. Maybe I should have thawed it and squeezed out the excess water?
Yes if you use frozen you need to squeeze out any extra moister.
I’m not big with mayo, But I will use it if I have to I know they’re sour cream in the recipe and usually that’s what people substitute mail for is there anyway to either add more sour cream or omit the mayo
Hello! I made this and it tastes absolutely amazing. I did ring out the spinach but it came out with lots of extra liquid. Is this normal to come out this way? Thank you for the amazing recipe!
I haven’t had this happen, has anyone else had this?
I used raw spinach and there was a lot of liquid with final product. I believe the liquid is coming from the chicken.

Four whole chicken breasts? Or halves?
Guys, Thanks For sharing this Great Recipe. My Family Loved it. I am definitely sharing this recipe and this website with my friend. Hope they also love it. Thank you again for sharing such a great recipe.
This was great! I did try to make it healthier. I used Greek cream cheese, Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and light mayo. Thank you for this wonderful recipe! 🙂
Based on the recipe it doesn’t suggest having the artichoke dominate in flavor.I guess it’s a personal preference to add more if you like. Thanks!
