"Amazingly Wonderful Almond Chicken Casserole! My grandmother made this for me, and I could not believe how wonderful it was. It is very rich and filling. It would be great for potlucks, or family reunions."

1 (10.5 ounce) can
condensed cream of chicken soup
1 (10.5 ounce) can
cooked diced chicken
water chestnuts, drained
1 1/2 cups
1 1/2 cups
crushed buttery round crackers
shredded Colby cheese
This recipe was a big hit with my whole family. It is now a regular on my meal-planning calendar. One batch makes two 8x8 pans, so I freeze one without the cheese, crackers and almonds. I add those when I'm ready to bake it.
Very quick prep...and very good texture to the dish...however, I would cut the mayo amount by half ! The 1 cup of mayo almost overpowered the rest of the dish.
My husband absolutely hates mayo, so I took it out and substituted a half cup of sour cream instead. It was wonderful! Very simple dish to prepare and it went so far for my family!!!
I gave this 3 stars although it is a VERY good dish. However, I did some things different than the recipe says. First, the recipe only calls for cooked chicken it does not say how to cook it so, I sautéed 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts in olive oil (I never measure anything), then I used 1 can of cream of mushroom and a half can of cream of onion (Next time I will try cream of celery), 1 can of the chicken broth, then I added the mayo approx. 3/4 cup + a dollop, the celery, onion, water chestnuts (cut into small pieces), then the juice from one lemon fresh squeezed into sauce mix, salt, and garlic powder. I boiled wide egg noodles (instead of rice) and mixed everything. (including the noodles), then I put everything in a casserole dish and cooked for 20 minutes, then I topped it with the ritz cracker and butter mix, I used almonds and Colby however next time I am thinking I will omit the Almonds, and use a mixed shredded cheese for top. This was the BEST casserole I have ever made. My family wanted more more more. I changed it up according to everyone’s reviews (especially the "only tastes like mayo" review), Thank you for the base recipe I would not have been able to do it without that. This is def a 10 star casserole after the changes!! Thank you
This was really easy and quite good. I can't give it a 5 yet, but some tweaking next time and we will have a hit. I loved the almonds on top, but the Colby cheese turned brick hard and all of the almonds stuck to the cheese. I think next time I will just mix it all together add a few more spices and we will have a winner.
I must have done something wrong because, all the reviews are great, but this waas terrible! Bland dry and smelly!
All you can taste is the mayo. Won't make again
I was afraid to try it since there weren't any reviews yet, but I'm glad I did...it was tasty and pretty easy! My in laws loved it and they are pretty particular! I forgot the lemon juice and sauteed the celery and onion in butter just to soften them a bit...it was very good! I will make it again!
