We love easy chicken casserole recipes like Chicken Tetrazzini and One-Pot Chicken and Rice. This Chicken and Mushroom Casserole does not disappoint!

Why we love this Chicken Bake

Crowd-Pleaser! Galina (my sister’s mama-in-law) is an amazing cook and this is her chicken and mushroom casserole. It is always a hit at parties and church potlucks. We make this often.

The chicken is incredibly tender – you will savor every morsel. I’ve seen sorta-somewhat similar recipes online referred to as Chicken Gloria, but I love that this one is made from scratch. It uses simple, non-canned ingredients (no cream of chicken soup needed).

Reheats Well – This chicken and mushroom casserole also re-heats really well (if you are lucky enough to have leftovers). You will likely add this recipe to your list of favorites.

Ingredients for Chicken Casserole

The ingredients for this recipe are surprisingly simple but they just work (see full printable ingredient list below):

  • Chicken breast (or chicken tenders)
  • Chicken broth
  • Half and half*
  • All-purpose flour (or use a GF substitute)
  • Mushrooms
  • Onion – it disappears into the sauce
  • Garlic – don’t skip it
  • Lemon juice – fresh is best

*What is half and half? Half and half is basically light cream. If you aren’t able to find “half and half” at your grocery store, you can substitute with equal parts of milk and heavy cream.

Can I Substitute the Mushrooms?

You can replace white mushrooms with portabello mushrooms. If you don’t like mushrooms, you can substitute with different vegetables, just pick sturdy veggies (avoid zucchini which turns mushy). Here are some great options to replace mushrooms:

  • Frozen peas
  • Asparagus
  • Caramelized onions
  • Artichoke hearts (well-drained)

How to Make Chicken Casserole

1. Sautee Chicken: Season chicken with salt and pepper and dredge in flour. Heat 3 Tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium/high heat. Once the oil is hot, add chicken and saute until golden, and transfer to a 13×9 casserole baking dish.

How to Make Chicken Casserole step by step with dredging and sautéing chicken

Pro Tip: Work in batches if needed so you don’t crowd your pan. Don’t worry about cooking the chicken through; it still needs to go in the oven

2. Sautee Mushrooms: Add 3 Tbsp oil along and saute mushrooms and onions until soft and golden. Add garlic and saute another 1-2 min. Spread mixture over the chicken.

3. Make the Sauce: In a medium saucepan (or in the same pan you’ve been using), melt 3 Tbsp butter. Whisk in 3 Tbsp flour until lightly golden (1-2 min). Add 1 1/2 cups chicken broth, 1 Tbsp lemon juice, 1/4 tsp pepper, and whisk until smooth. Add 1 cup half & half and bring to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

4. Combine and Bake: Pour sauce over the chicken casserole. Cover with foil and bake chicken and mushroom casserole at 350˚F for 45 minutes. Garnish with parsley if desired.

Common Questions

Can I substitute the chicken breast?

You can use trimmed chicken thighs or chicken tenders instead. If using chicken tenders, you don’t need to slice them.

Can I Make this ahead?

Make and combine the chicken and mushrooms and refrigerate. The next day, make the sauce, assemble, and bake as directed.

Does chicken casserole reheat well?

Yes, you can reheat a pre-baked and chilled chicken casserole in the oven: cover with foil and bake at 325˚f for about 20 minutes or just until hot, or reheat on the stovetop over low heat just until hot, stirring occasionally.

Can I freeze chicken casserole?

Yes! You can freeze leftover chicken casserole. One of my readers shared her method: “It works! I took the pan out of the freezer, left it in the fridge most of the day, and reheated it in a 350* oven for about 40 minutes.”

Cooking in a crock pot or slow cooker?

One of our readers reported great results using a multi-cooker/ slow cooker: brown the chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker using the sautee function and remove. Sautée onions and mushrooms then return chicken to the pan. Combine sauce ingredients in a pan on the stove, pour it over the chicken, and slow-cook on low for five hours.

    I followed the directions to a ‘T’ and it came out great! Awesome flavor, perfect consistency.
    As I was cleaning up, I couldn’t help thinking, it was missing something. Then it hit me, next time I make it I’m going to add a tablespoon, or so, of Dijon mustard to the sauce!?! I think it might take this dish to another level.

    Loved this recipe! I Used just under 2 lbs of boneless skinless chicken thighs because that’s what I had on hand and added fresh raw broccoli to the bottom of the casserole before putting it in the oven with the chicken to take up some space because I skimped a little on the chicken and to add some green 🙂 other then that I followed the rest of the recipe to a T, threw that all in the oven and it turned out SO DELICIOUS. I served it with rice and my husband ate HALF the casserole in one sitting 😂 the gravy that manifests by the time this dish is ready is absolutely heavenly on some rice. I’ll definitely be making this again!

    The flavor was very good. However, after baking for 45 minutes at 350 degrees, my sauce “broke”. I assumed this was due to the sauce getting too hot. Any thoughts as to why this happened? Since the cut up chicken is already partially cooked, can one reduce the cooking time or oven temperature and achieve the results you did?

      Hi Cheryl, make sure you are not using a convection oven setting that would require a modification. Also, I recommend using an in-oven thermometer to check the temperature and see if the oven is heating correctly. Lastly, make sure not to swap out any ingredients which can cause the sauce to separate.

          Then I sprinkled some dill on top before putting it in the oven.

    We liked this, but I’ll skip the dip in flour next time. Got a little goopy in some places, and just added mess to an otherwise simple process.

    I am planning to make this recipe next weekend for an after theatre dinner for a party of nine. If I prepare it ahead of time, should I cook it fully and reheat just before we eat, or is it better to prep it and leave it unbaked in the fridge until we are ready to eat. I have made it several times but have never needed it to wait. Such a favourite and a sure fire winner.

      Hi Shirley, the way I make this ahead of time is to make and combine the chicken and mushrooms and refrigerate. The next day I make the sauce and bake. If you assembled the full recipe, yes that would work well to make it ahead, refrigerate and then reheat. This casserole reheats really well.

    I didn’t have fresh mushrooms so I used canned mushrooms and some rehydrated shiitake mushrooms for richer mushroom flavor (canned mushrooms are pretty flavorless) This dish was incredibly delicious. The proportions of the ingredients were perfect, I wouldn’t change a thing. I agree with a previous commenter, it is better than a restaurant

    Easy steps to a superb dish, thanks, I added some green olives to enhance the Mediterranean feel, roasted sprouts are one of my favorite vegie dishes and do very well cold with olive oil and lemon juice.

    Made this delicious chicken and mushroom casserole tonight, and the family loved it! When it came time for making the sauce, I melted the butter first then into it 1/4 tsp pepper and salt and 3/4 tsp garlic powder since I didn’t have fresh garlic. Continued sauce with 1/2 heavy cream and 1/2 whole milk. Also used 1 Tbl of chardonnay since I didn’t have lemon juice. Casserole was divine over homemade mashed potatoes and green beans!! Better than a restaurant!! Thank you, Natasha!! 😊

    I made this for Christmas Eve dinner and it was fantastic! I only put it in the oven for 30 minutes instead of 45. Served it over Yukon Gold mashed potatoes and Green Beans served al dente with olive oil and sliced almonds. It was the perfect meal.

      Hi Sharon, you may use half whipping cream and half whole milk as a substitute for half and half. I haven’t tried using double cream but you can try as an experiment.

    Utterly delectable!

    We are a family of coeliacs and so I subbed the flour for an equal blend of tapioca flour and ground almonds.

    At the dredging stage there was too much flour for this substitute as it will become gummy and unpleasant. Instead, I added the chicken strips to a large bowl and seasoned 3-4 tbsp of the flour blend with salt and pepper, covered the bowl in cling film, and shook the bowl to coat the chicken. It gave excellent light coverage, and when fried in butter rather than olive oil it came out beautifully golden.

    The flour blend worked fabulously with the sauce. I use the same method to make gravy. I used 3 heaped tbsp with a generous 3 tbsp of butter.

    For the vegetables I used mushrooms, asparagus, and carrots. It was a very enjoyable combination, and my family very much enjoyed it.

      Hi Gillian, in general, you should store cooked chicken for 3-4 days in the refrigerator and I would follow that same guideline for this chicken casserole.

      Hi Alexis, Buttermilk wouldn’t work for this recipe. You can replace the half and half with 1/2 cup milk + 1/2 cup heavy cream but I wouldn’t use buttermilk.

    I made this a few nights ago. I had to halve the recipe since there is just the 2 of us, and we still ate it for several days……we didn’t mind since it was DELICIOUS!!! It took a little longer to make that I thought it would but it was certainly worth it. The only mistake I made was not covering it before putting in the oven. It was still great but the sauce got really thick. I’ll not forget that step the next time I make it though.

      HI Ruth, I haven’t tested anything else. The closest thing might be canned coconut milk (full fat), although I haven’t tested that so I can’t say how it will affect the creamy consistency. One of my readers reported great results. here is what they wrote: “instead of the milk: 1/3 of each, cream, coconut milk and rice milk. (I don’t like either of those flavors on it’s own so I tried to mix them which worked a treat!”
