Chicken Tetrazzini Loaded With Cheddar, Bacon, & Ranch

Chicken Tetrazzini is one of my all-time favorite meals. My Grandmother's recipe is my favorite recipe. I can eat WAY too much of it. I didn't think I could improve upon her recipe, but I think it did with this Crack Chicken Tetrazzini. Chicken, cheddar, bacon, ranch, and pasta - YES, please! We ate this for lunch and leftover for dinner on the same day. It was that good! I even ate it again the next day for lunch. I just couldn't get enough of this yummy chicken casserole!

How to Make Chicken Tetrazzini

This Crack Chicken Tetrazzini is a snap to make. I start with a rotisserie chicken. Rotisserie chickens are my secret weapon in the kitchen. They make casseroles like this super easy. Another tip for super easy prep on this casserole is to use precooked bacon. I buy bags of it at Costco and Sam's Club. It is a HUGE time saver!

To make the casserole, cook the pasta according to the package directions. Whisk together chicken broth, cream of chicken soup, cream of mushroom soup, and dry ranch dressing mix. Place half the pasta in a casserole dish. Top with half of the chicken, bacon, and cheese. Pour half of the soup mixture on top. Repeat the layers and pop in the oven.

Can Chicken Tetrazzini be Made in Advance & Frozen?

This Crack Chicken Tetrazzini can be made ahead of time and refrigerate or frozen for later. If refrigerating the casserole overnight, you may need to add a few minutes to the cooking time if baking straight from the refrigerator.

To bake this Crack Chicken Tetrazzini after freezing, thaw completely and bake as directed below. If you are freezing the casserole after baking, thaw completely and reheat in the microwave or covered in the oven.
