Chicken and pasta combinations are easy to whip up and can often be one-pot meals. In casserole form, many can be made ahead of time and baked later on or the next day. 


  • If you don't have leftover cooked chicken, consider using a fully cooked rotisserie chicken or the convenient packages of pre-cooked chicken breast strips that can be found in the refrigerated section of the supermarket. A 9-ounce package will yield about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of diced chicken, the perfect amount for many casseroles.
