This was a decent recipe the first time I made it, but tweaking it really brought it to the next level. I'm giving it three stars because the original recipe was "good" and easy, and it's not fair to rate it after making a bunch of changes. Here's the suggestions hubby made that really helped:<br/><br/>Sauteed some chopped white onion in butter and combined it with herb stuffing to make a "crust" on the bottom of the pan. Salt, pepper and poultry seasoning on the cubed chicken, which I placed on top of the stuffing (raw, because boiling it is an extra, unnecessary step.) Added corn and green beans to the sour cream/soup mixture to give it some veggies and texture. Poured over the chicken and baked until bubbly. Added shredded sharp cheddar in the last few minutes. Let it sit for 10 minutes to thicken. YUM! <br/><br/>Really, it's a totally different recipe at this point I guess, but I would have never thought to make this without a good base. We really liked the sour cream in it! Thanks!
Good & Tasty recipe! I did do some tweaking, though. I cooked the cubed chicken with diced onion and garlic paste. I also added a cup of frozen peas and a small can of mushrooms to the chicken mixture. I shredded some cheddar cheese on top before adding crushed whole wheat ritz crackers. It was very tasty! But I think it would've been bland if I didn't use extra spices.
Another wow here! I didn't expect to love it so much, it was just so simple. All the rave reviews convinced me to try it and boy am I glad I did!! Followed others' advice and used more Ritz crackers than called, and a layer of cheese under the crackers, and I added some corn to the chicken for some veggies. A huge hit with all of us!
Yum, this is a down-home, kick-up your heels, and enjoy the evening kinda dish. There is nothing that I changed about this, except adding a couple of baby peas into the sour-cream/mushroom soup part. I highly recommend this for it's ease, you probably have all these items on hand, and the taste is well worth the minimal amount of time that it takes to prepare. Make it even easier using parts from a rotisserie chicken. Thanks for posting, KC!
This is my fav casserole of all time.. my whole family loves it.. instead of ritz I use stuffing mix chicken flavor... & I always make fried green beans and biscuits w it..its amazing. People call and ask me for recipe all the time:)
YUM! We loved the Ritz topping! I used half the amount of butter in the topping and it worked out great!
We like to eat alot of Chicken and I was looking for something "different" to make for dinner tonight. I have to say, this was so incredibly easy and delicious! My Family loved it!!! Next time, I may add a little of the broccoli florets. Perfect Dish and Delish!!!!!
I love this recipe. I made this last night and I did add a few things but not too much. Instead of boiling the chicken I cubed it and sauteed it with some finely chopped onion and garlic. I also added some shredded cheddar cheese on top of the soup mixture. This is such a good recipe. Its very rich though, but yummy. (we were practicaly licking the pan) I served this with some buttered noodles and brussel sprouts. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us, I will make again as we loved it.
This was a huge hit with my husband and daughter. They each went back for seconds. Plus, how easy can you get? I am trying it again tonight, but I don't have Ritz crackers, so I have mixed a 1/2 batch of cornbread and poured it on the top.
Wow! I'm teaching my sister to cook and thought this would be a great dish to work on. We added broccoli as others suggested and doubled the sour cream and chicken soup. It was amazing and my picky three year old asked for seconds!
