Dinnertime is a busy event in my house…most of the time it happens, other times 6:00 rolls around and we look at each other and basically shrug our shoulders.

So obviously, Hash Brown Casserole is a favorite in my house.

This easy casserole recipe combines two of my favorite easy recipes, Crack Chicken and Hash Browns! I love this easy and fun spin on a classic casserole dish.

OR Leave Out the Chicken…

Just tried this tonight and it was REALLY good! We cooked it for 40 minutes due to my antique stove.

This casserole was amazing! My husband loved it and said it is definitely a keeper!

I love both hash browns & casseroles. The problem is raw hash browns don’t lend much flavor, so I cooked them in a skillet first & folded in both cups of cheese at the end. Throw in some bacon crumbles & you have a winner!

Great base recipe. I see why the great reviews. I sautéed chopped onions, green onions, banana and ancho peppers, garlic sprouts and added to hash browns in a skillet cooking with butter till browned. No sour cream. Added the cheese andspread evenly into casserole dish, topped with remaining cheese and panko crumbs. Sprinkled grated Parmesan, paprika and parsley over the top. Sprinkled fresh chives over the top before serving. My guy is having his 4th serving. Thank you for the awesome idea.

I will try this one, but I am definitley adding crumbled bacon to mine =)

I’ll will be using this recipe for sure .

Thanks. This was good. The sauce was a bit too thick and I let it cook for over an hour and the potatoes still seemed raw. I would suggest halving the sauce and then pre-cooking the potatoes. The flavor is awesome. Not trying to ruin the post, as we would have it again with these modifications. Thanks for the idea.

Do you have to cook the chicken first?

May 18, 2016 11:47 pm

Found your blog as I was Googling chicken and hashbrowns! Wow– this is a great recipe, and very versatile as others have noted. I made it tonight for hubby and me. I only had a little sour cream so combined it with fat free Greek yogurt to make the 1 cup. Sauteed some chopped broccoli, bell pepper, onion, and minced garlic and added to the mix. I also cooked the hash browns in a skillet beforehand to brown them up a bit. I forgot to add a little hot sauce or cayenne as I think that would really add to… Read more »

This looks delicious! I would like to try it (specially since I loooove not having to wash a ton of dishes), but I’m not really familiar with what “Cream of chicken soup” is. Is it another way to call consommé? Or is this something you buy?
Than you!

You can buy cream of chicken soup in most food stores.

This has become a favorite in our house. I’ve made it with cream of mushroom and ground beef, rotisserie chicken tossed in homemade BBQ sauce, tuna, and with ground beef, black beans and taco seasoning. Each version has been a big hit with my family. This recipe is so versatile, the options are endless. Thank you for posting!

Made it and I would probably suggest for hashbrowns to be cooked with butter first. They thawed out but casserole just lacked my best guess is I should have cooked the potatoes first.

January 17, 2015 1:58 pm

Looks delicious. I want to do some freezer meals, I bet this would work! Thanks for the recipe!

Made this today we loved it but I added one thing baked some really lean bacon and crumbled just a little on top instead of the crackers once I had baked it & the cheese had melted. Then I started thinking next time going to try with taco seasoning instead of ranch for my husband & could be made with chicken or lean ground beef. Saute an onion and green pepper to add to the hash browns then once baked top with pico de gallo, sour cream or greek yogurt & scallions. And maybe use pepper jack cheese which he… Read more »

Do you think shredded hashbrowns could be used instead? That’s all I have 🙁
