Cheesy Mexican Rotisserie Chicken Casserole
Author: Adventures of a Traveling Foodie
I developed this recipe based off of one that an old friend used to make. I added my own twists to fit my tastes, and created a tasty Cheesy Mexican Rotisserie Chicken Casserole! Not only is this a family favorite, it is a crowd-pleaser for any potluck. My husband takes it every year to his job’s Christmas party, and it is what I take to any event where I need to bring a main dish. I always get rave reviews, and never have leftovers! I hope that you enjoy it too!
  • The breast meat from a large rotisserie chicken, shredded (note: I get mine at Costco)
  • 10 ounce bag of frozen broccoli florets, thawed (note: I use Cascadian Farm)
  • 16 ounce package Mexican Velveeta, melted
  • 2 – 10¾ ounce cans of Campbell’s cream of chicken soup
  • 4.5 ounce can of Old El Paso chopped green chilies
  • 3 cups of Minute Rice
  • 3 cups of water (for cooking the rice)
  • Pepper to taste
  • You will also need a greased 13×9 baking dish
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cook the Minute Rice following the directions on the box. Keep covered and set aside.
  3. After you have gotten every bit of breast meat that you could possibly find on your rotisserie and shredded it, toss it in a large bowl with the thawed broccoli florets.
  4. Next, add the 2 cans of cream of chicken soup, chilies, and pepper to taste. Mix will.
  5. Now comes the best part!! It is time to add the delicious Velveeta goodness. Simply pour the melted cheese over your mixture and mix it until it is one with your other ingredients.
  6. I like to add the hot Minute Rice last, just to make sure the Velveeta stays nice and creamy. So, once you have mixed the cheese, pour the hot rice over your mixture, and mix well.
  7. Finally, pour all of the deliciousness into your greased 13×9 baking dish. Note: butter is always the best form of greasing, however, I also use olive oil. So, whatever you have on hand is fine.
  8. Bake for 30-45 minutes at 375 degrees, or until beautiful and golden! Serve with your favorite garlic bread and salad!
Note: While it is not required to use the same brands that I do, after testing and tweaking, these are the ones that make the very best version of this dish.

Bon Appétit
