  • 3 to 4 chicken breasts , cooked and shredded (boil chicken breast in water, cool and shred)
  • 1 cup chicken broth from boiled chicken
  • 1/2 cup butter , dairy-free use Earth Balance butter
  • 2 cups Gluten Free Bisquick (If you don't have gluten-free Bisquick you can use this recipe above in the blog post to make your own.)
  • 2 cups  milk , or use dairy-free milk of choice
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free cream of chicken soup (my recipe)
  • 3 teaspoons chicken granules , You can also substitute 1 teaspoon of gluten-free poultry seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/2   teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or more to taste
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn

Dairy-Free Option:


  • Boil chicken breasts for 20-25 minutes or until done. (save water)
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • When chicken breasts are cooled, shred. (I use my hand mixer to easily shred the chicken.)
  • Layer 1 - In 9 x 13 casserole dish, melt 1/2 stick of butter. Spread shredded chicken over melted butter. Sprinkle salt, black pepper and dried sage over this layer. Sprinkle frozen peas and corn over chicken. Do not stir.
  • Layer 2 - In a small bowl, mix milk and gluten-free Bisquick. Slowly pour gluten-free Bisquick mixture all over chicken. Do not stir.
  • Layer 3 - In a medium bowl, whisk together 1 cup of chicken broth (from your boiled chicken), chicken granules, and gluten-free cream of chicken soup. Once blended, slowly pour over the gluten-free Bisquick layer. Do not stir. (Dairy-free use my recipe for Gluten-Free Cream of Chicken Soup with dairy-free butter and milk)
  • Bake casserole for 45-60 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Enjoy!
  • Store leftovers in an air-tight container. Re-heat in the microwave or oven.


  • For the dairy-free option, I used Smart Balance butter, almond, milk and my recipe for Gluten-Free Cream of Chicken Soup {Dairy-Free Option}.
  • Store leftovers in an air-tight container.
  • Re-heat in the microwave or oven.
  • Mama says "Check all of your labels!"
