Crack Chicken Casserole

Crack Chicken Casserole

Crack chicken is very addictive, hence the name.. it’s so good, you can’t stop eating it. To complement this dish, I often serve it with a side of green beans or a caesar salad.

  • 12 slices bacon
  • 2 pounds chicken breast (cubed)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 green bell pepper (diced)
  • 1 medium onion (diced)

  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 package cream cheese
  • 3 cups cheddar cheese (grated)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Bring a large pot of water to boil and cook the macaroni for approximately ten minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, cook the bacon, flipping occasionally until crispy. Remove bacon from skillet and set on paper towels to absorb the grease. Crumble once cool.
  • Drain the grease from the skillet, leaving two tablespoons to cook the chicken and vegetables.
  • Add two pounds of cubed chicken to the skillet and season with one-quarter teaspoon of salt, one-half teaspoon of pepper, and one-half tablespoon of paprika. Cook until golden and no longer pink in the center.
  • Remove chicken from the skillet and place in a large bowl.
  • Add one medium diced onion, one green diced bell pepper, and two tablespoons of minced garlic to the skillet and cook for 3-5 minutes or until the vegetables have softened. 
  • Remove from the skillet and add to the bowl with chicken.
  • In the same skillet, on low heat, melt three tablespoons of butter. Add one-quarter cup of Bisquick and stir until a paste forms.
  • Gradually stir in three cups of milk until fully combined.
  • Stir in one can of cream of chicken soup and one package of cream cheese. Stir until well incorporated.
  • Add three cups of cheddar cheese and stir until fully melted. Remove from heat.
  • To the bowl with meat and veggies, add the cooked pasta and cheese mixture. Stir well and transfer to a baking dish.
  • Top with one cup of shredded cheese, and the cooked crumbled bacon.
  • Bake for thirty minutes or until the cheese is fully melted.
  • Serve and enjoy!
