Love this recipe it was so simple and tasted great. I did follow the other suggestions and added some frozen peas and a layer of shredded cheese between the soup and cracker layer. I did not add any salt, but added a bit of garlic and Cajun seasoning to it. Next time I may try adding rice to and doubling the sauce, although it really don't need it :) I will be adding this to our list of favorites.
I've always been frustrated by reviewers who've rated a recipe after all of the 'tweaking' they've done, but that's exactly what I'm about to do.(chuckle) I've given it 5 stars for it's inspiration and versatility. I made this based on what I had on hand. One chicken breast and 2 thighs that I poached and cubed. Then I used a sour cream / dry onion soup mix that I had made for a dip and needed to be used up. I added some frozen broccoli and some mushrooms to the mix and then followed the prep and cooking technique as written. Served it over egg noodles for a very yummy nutritionally balanced comfort dish.
Nice & easy family tummy-filler. I made the following changes: (1) I increased the yield to 6 ; (2) I sauteed the chunks of chicken in EVOO with crushed garlic and and salt & pepper; (3) I added a layer of canned green beans on top of the sour cream/soup mixture; and (4) I added a layer of Mexican cheese blend (cheddar & Jack) on top of the green beans under the crackers. YUM!
Fantastic basic recipe! I spiced it up as recommended in some other reviews - added tarragon and turmeric. Served it over rice. Really delicious!
This was a great recipe just as written. It was easy and delicious. I will be making this often. I like some of the suggestions to change it up somewhat and will try those as well. Thanks for such an easy delicious recipe.
Very good and super easy!! I did not read one review before making this dish!! I thought about adding veggies but didnt want to overwhelm my picky eaters. It was extremely easy and tasted just as I expected :) I have 3 different eaters in the house, all men....my husband, who looks everything over twice, dug right in and inhaled bite after bite...my 12 year old son, who is very picky, didnt hesitate on trying it and ate 3 servings...and my 4 year old son who eats everything but the fork and plate enjoyed every bite of it!!! I served it with their favorite veggies on the side and a dinner roll...at the end, tummies were full and I was happy!! No leftovers or any to scrape off the plate into the trash!! What a hit in our house!! We will be adding this to our favorites! Thanks for sharing :)
I loveee this recipe, so simple & good that nothing needs to be changed! A good friend YEARS ago, before I'd ever had this dish, made it as well as mashed potatoes on the side & brought it over, ever since then I have been making this. I use both cream of mushroom & cream of chicken, one of each. Serve with mashed potatoes, it's the best!
Excellent dish! Super feast & easy to make!! I pour it in a Pet Ritz pie shell and tasted like the best chicken pot pie we ever had. Adding peas or peas & carrots was good too.
I really liked this recipe but the original recipe as written just didn't seem like enough. The second time I made it I added a frozen veggie mix that I cooked ahead of time (it was corn, carrots and asparagus) and I also added some spices and seasoning to the soup/sour cream mixture (a few pinches of mild chili powder, dried onions and dill) and it was really good. I also melted the butter and mixed it with the Ritz crackers before I put them over the top to get a good even brown. I really do like how the sour cream adds a whole new taste to the boring old cream soup taste. This is really a comfort casserole at it's best! Thank you for posting! I'm pretty sure that the family will ask for this again!
This was a big hit at dinner tonight. A little rich for me, but very good! I added about a cup of rice and put it in the crock pot for about 4-5 hours. WIll definitely make again. Thanks!
