This is a 4 year old's delight. My daughter (and everyone else) loves this chicken. She will eat it anytime, anyplace. How can you go wrong with Ritz crackers and chicken?

I have made this several times. I have added onion, garlic, cheese, and lemon pepper. Have also made this after browning chicken for another recipe, then deciding to make this instead. I make this about twice a month. Thanks for an easy to fix dish!

Made this the other night and we enjoyed the rich creamy texture, but felt like it needed something more. Next time I might add the mixture to some cooked thin egg noodles and add some Mrs Dash lemon pepper.

The family liked this and it was so easy! I didn't dice the chicken because I forgot to and just put the cooked breasts in the bottom of a casserole dish. It turned out really well. Next time, I will dice it ahead of time because our kids are small and need things cut up for them. One thing I did do that I would recommend is browning the chicken (instead of just boiling or nuking). My husband said, "It's a keeper." Thanks!
