Good recipe for what it is. I salt and peppered the chicken before even dredging it, and felt it could have even used a little more. I didn't get a big enough can of the cream of chicken, so I added extra sour cream, and also added milk and the extra cheese I had left over. I am not a huge fan of the artificial chicken flavor, so this helped in fixing that for me.
This is best chicken casserole. I found it difficult and time consuming to dip and dredge the chicken so I greased my dish, out down a layer of crushes ritz crackers, a layer of cheddar cheese, then layered the chicken dipped in milk and then reversing the layering with cheese then topped with the rest of the crushed cracker. SO much easier and came out just as good.
Egad! cannot believe how picky people can be. Not only was this recipe super easy: there are not enough accolades in me and my family to describe "how awesome is this meal!" The sauce, again, cannot describe how good! Family fought over what was stuck to pan.
Recipe worked well! Only complaint is how bad the chicken stuck to the pan. Other than that, this is a great recipe. Definitely will make it again!
This recipe tastes pretty good but it's difficult to make. I couldn't get the grated cheddar cheese to stick to the chicken (which had been dipped in milk). Milk isn't sticky! The cheese just fell off. I ended up mixing the cheese with the crumbs, which worked a little better. Then, even though I sprayed the baking pan with cooking spray, the cheesy breading on the chicken stuck horribly to the pan. It was a mess to clean up. Plus, all of that breading that stuck was wasted. I'm glad others enjoy this recipe, but it was not for us.
I really, really love this recipe. I dont even mind the sauce - it's thick and takes maybe 2-3 min if that to do. In fact, this recipe has been one of my standby's since i found it on Pinterest; the end result looks like a lot of an effort, but it's really not. the only problem i have is that the coating doesnt stick very well to the chicken, so i usually make sure it's coated well when i arrange it on the baking sheet before going in the oven. I also don't own a food processor (shameful i know) so i just put the crackers in a ziploc bag and roll it out with a rolling pin :) Works pretty well! I love serving it with mashed potatoes - fluffy kitty 2000 is right - perfect comfort food!
We loved the coating on the chicken, but I wasn't fond of the sauce. I added a little white wine to see if that made a difference, but no go:(
Totally delicious comfort food!!
