This is named appropriately and is simply good. This recipe was so easy to make. My granddaughter helped. I used Ritz crackers to crumble on top. The chicken was very rich and creamy. The whole gang gobbled it up. Thanks for a simple, delicious casserole.

This was amazing! I used the new Roasted Vegetable Ritz crackers, I think that added a lot of flavor. I threw in some garlic salt and minced onion. My husband said "You can make this once a week!", and that's a huge compliment from him!

Excellent casserole. I needed something very simple and easy for dinner. This was the perfect thing. Had a rich creamy chicken filling. I used crumbled up Town House crackers that made a buttery crust and topping. Tasted delicious and the whole family enjoyed it.
