Alfredo sauce, chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, green peas, and a crunchy Panko topping make this Chicken Alfredo Rice Casserole so delicious! And the best part is it’s a dump-and-go meal perfect for a busy weeknight. Your family is going to be begging you to make this.
I absolutely love casseroles. I love how easy they are to make, and I especially love that you can store them in the dish you bake them in, (less dishwashing is always a win) and that they keep super well as leftovers. I’m a super fan of this recipe because it is: 1) so delicious, 2) so easy to throw together, and 3) a complete and balanced meal!
Ingredients for Chicken Alfredo and Rice Casserole
This recipe is full of pantry and freezer staples that I almost always have on hand. For this recipe, you’ll need:
- cooked white rice
- cooked shredded chicken: you could use rotisserie chicken, or cook chicken breast in the instant pot, oven, or stove
- jarred Alfredo sauce: use your favorite brand
- frozen peas
- chopped sun-dried tomatoes (optional)
- Italian seasoning
- onion powder
- garlic powder
- Panko breadcrumbs: Panko is a different texture than normal bread crumbs, so try to find Panko!
- melted butter
How to Make Chicken Alfredo Rice Casserole
As I said before, this recipe is so easy to throw together. First, combine all of the ingredients except the breadcrumbs and butter in a large bowl (I love this set of bowls because it has one in every size).
Stir that together and add it to a greased 9 x 13 baking dish. Spread the mixture in the dish evenly.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for about 20 minutes, then remove the foil and sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the top and drizzle the butter over the top of the breadcrumbs. Bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes, or until the Panko top is golden and crunchy. Serve and enjoy!
What to Serve with Chicken Alfredo Rice Casserole
This casserole is definitely a full and complete meal, but if you wanted to serve something alongside it, you could serve it with a side salad, fruit, homemade dinner rolls, or steamed veggies.
