Choosing the Right Chicken

Types of Chicken Cuts

The type of chicken cut you choose can make a big difference in your casserole. Breast meat is lean and cooks quickly, perfect for a light, healthy option. Thighs, on the other hand, are richer in flavor and stay juicier, ideal for slow-cooked casseroles.

Organic vs. Regular Chicken

Organic chicken, raised without antibiotics or hormones, can offer a cleaner, more robust flavor. However, if budget constraints are a concern, regular chicken is still a great option. Regardless of your choice, always look for fresh, well-sourced poultry for the best results.

Pre-Cooked Chicken

If you want to save time you can often use pre-cooked chicken such as rotisserie chicken, shredded or cubed chicken that you prepared in advance, or store-bought chicken from the frozen section of the grocery store.
