    Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. In large bowl, stir sauce mix pouches (from potato mix boxes), boiling water, milk, cream cheese, sour cream, Dijon mustard, salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder with whisk. Stir in potatoes (from potato mix boxes), chicken and onions; pour into baking dish. Bake 30 minutes.

Expert Tips

  • The herbal oniony flavor of tender chives can't be beat. But when they're not available (or don't look so good), green onions make an excellent substitute.
  • Chive & onion cream cheese is available in regular and reduced-fat versions. This recipe was tested using regular, so we recommend avoiding the reduced-fat version for best results.
  • Stirring the potato mixture ensures even cooking and prevents the top of your casserole from browning too much. Just remember to use caution, as your potatoes will be quite hot after 30 minutes of baking.
  • Though optional, we highly recommend serving this casserole with the Chive Sour Cream, as it really takes this dish to the next level. And since it's made from the same ingredients used to make the casserole, it's really just a matter of measuring and stirring.
