Chicken Casserole

After asking for it a few weeks ago, I finally invited my friend Bonnie and her husband over to enjoy some delicious chicken casserole with my family and me.


We had a great time catching up, and I had fun making this recipe (a staple in our family that came from my Mamaw) for the first time ever!  Now that I have the first time out of the way, I can't wait to start making this for Mr. L in Hawaii =)

Chicken Casserole


Ingredients

  • 1 chicken's worth shredded meat (I used a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store)
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup (we actually ended up using three)
  • Approx. 3/4 container of sour cream (you could use a whole container instead and just not use 3 cans of cream of chicken soup)
  • Approx. 1 1/2 sticks of butter
  • 1 package Ritz crackers, crushed (Note: by package I do NOT mean a whole box!)
  • Copious handfuls of shredded cheddar cheese (not pictured)


Directions

Mix together the chicken, soup, sour cream, and cheese in a bowl.


Pour the mixture into a baking pan and spread evenly.


Add crushed Ritz crackers all over the top of the mixture.


Melt butter completely; spoon over the top of the cracker crumbs.


Bake in a 350° oven for about 35 minutes, or until casserole is heated through and the cracker topping is nice and crispy.


Serve and hope your family/guests/loved ones don't devour it in one sitting =)  Such a ridiculously simple recipe -- I can't believe I haven't made it sooner, but I have a feeling it will become a staple.  Hope you enjoy it like we do!
