Cheesy Bacon Chicken Pierogi Bake

Here is an old favorite that I had to share with you during this busy Christmas Holiday season.

Chicken Pierogi Bake

This recipe is a twist on one of my favorite casseroles that is taken to a whole new level with the irresistible flavor of bacon. Smoky bacon infuses a creamy cheese sauce and combines with herbs and spices to create an incredibly decadent cheese sauce that is perfect for this dish…

Helpful Tips

  • Pre-shredded cheeses have additives to help keep the cheese from sticking together, called anti-caking agents. They also change the way the cheese melts and will cause thickening of your recipes. Skip the pre-shredded cheese and grate your own. I store it in a zip-top bag in the fridge and it keeps for several weeks.

What you will need to make Cheesy Chicken Pierogi Bake:

  • Medium Sauce Pan – 
  • 9×13 Baking Dish – I have my favorites and this set is one of them. The 9×13 is perfect for casseroles and the smaller size is awesome for making 1/2 a casserole recipe.

Enjoy!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.
