Britney Spears' Cheetos Chicken Casserole

By Vicki McClure Davidson


Frugal Celebrities Recipes

Reportedly, this is a 2008 recipe that originated from pop singer Britney Spears, not long after her troubling public meltdowns. Picturing her in the kitchen cooking is a bit of a stretch. But, the casserole seems cheap, easy to make, and something that kids would enjoy making and eating.

No telling how it would taste to an adult palate (I'm still working up the courage to attempt making it). But I have crumbled potato chips, saltine crackers, and fried tortilla chips over the tops of casseroles, so this could be quite tasty. I see no reason why the chicken couldn't be substituted with leftover turkey from the holidays.

Considering her previous heavy partying, personal life dramas, and public ups and down (and a few meltdowns), Spears' culinary skills from back in 2008 are understandably suspect.

However, the former pop princess and child star Mousketeer seems to have worked hard to get her troubled life straightened out and her career back on track. She's lost the weight she put on during her out-of-control period and is looking more fit, radiant, and in control than she has in quite a while.

In 2012, Spears was featured on's single "Scream & Shout," which topped charts in more than 24 countries. She also served as a TV panel judge during the second season of the American version of The X Factor.
