I absolutely love the combination of peanut and chicken. One of my all-time favorite dishes is Chicken Pad Thai. I haven’t gotten around to make Pad Thai yet so this Thai Peanut Chicken Casserole is the next best thing.

This recipe is obviously not an authentic Thai dish since it uses Buttermilk Biscuits and Mozzarella cheese. I don’t know about you but I’ve never seen an authentic Thai dish with Mozzarella cheese.

I prefer the buttermilk biscuits in my recipes but feel free to substitute with a different kind if you happen to have it hand. No need to spend money if you don’t have to!

In my experience, a rotisserie will yield 4 to 5 cups depending on the size of the bird. This means that you will have leftover chicken for a sandwich or a chicken quesadilla.

Frequent visitors to this blog know that we don’t care for mushrooms very much so I left them out this time around. As you can see in the pictures, no mushrooms.

I felt that it wasn’t a key ingredient in this chicken casserole. The star of the show, in my opinion, is that delicious peanut sauce and chicken.
