Can You Use Fresh Vegetables And Is It Worth It?

Fresh vegetables do have a little bit more intensity and base flavor, as well as a bit more color than their frozen counterparts.

If you aren’t sure, though, going frozen is probably best – there is a difference between fresh and frozen, but it probably isn’t enough to really justify the extra cost.

Milk vs Chicken Broth

Since chicken broth is the usual choice for any kind of savory recipe, using milk might seem a bit strange; however, milk is really good at adding a ton of creaminess and richness to your casserole.

Not only that, but once cooked with all of the other ingredients, the milk thickens and turns almost savory, providing a really pleasant contrast to the meat and vegetables, as well as flavoring the biscuits.

So, though it might seem a bit weird, milk is a great option for those looking for a thicker, creamier casserole.

What Are The Best Parts Of The Chicken To Use In A Casserole?

There are lots of different types of chicken meat you could use for this recipe, all depending on what kind of final texture you want in your casserole.

  • Chicken Breast Cubes

Probably the easiest and lowest in fat, some simple cubed chicken breasts make for a simple, if potentially a little bit chewy when cooked altogether into a casserole.

  • Shredded Chicken Breasts

If you are sourcing your chicken from a rotisserie chicken, then you should be able to quite easily tear the chicken breasts apart into shreds.

Keep in mind, though, that this will produce little strings of chicken throughout the casserole – this could be a good or bad thing, all depending on what your personal preferences are.

  • Shredded Chicken Thighs

By far the best option for this kind of casserole is to use some chicken thighs that have been shredded apart using two forks.

Chicken thighs have a ton more flavor and fat, and are perfect for using them in casseroles.
