Short on time? Use a rotisserie chicken!
Most of the time we have shredded chicken on hand for easy meals throughout the week but on days when we don’t and are short on time, we love to take the easy route and use a rotisserie chicken. Just be sure to remove the skin before shredding.
Are you the type to meal prep at the beginning of the week? If so, these casseroles are perfect for you! You can assemble the casseroles 1-2 days ahead of time then finish baking on the day you’re going to serve it. Or, you can assemble and bake at the beginning of the week and portion out servings into meal-prep containers for an easy grab-and-go option.
What size skillet + Other pan options
We used a 10.25″ skillet, we also love this dual handle cast-iron casserole skillet. If you want to go the classic casserole dish route, just use a classic 9×13 baking dish.
