Easy Creamy Chicken Casserole

Recipe by  

"This is my mother's recipe and a family favorite. It's one of our comfort foods and regular easy recipes to make through a busy week. Can easily be prepared in advance, then popped in the oven for a nice hot meal. If making for the first time, add half of the sour cream and taste first. Add more if desired, tasting as you go, to reach desired flavor. Serve over cooked white rice."

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Mix the crackers and melted butter together in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Bring water and chicken stock to a boil in a pot over high heat. Season with salt and black pepper. Add the chicken. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in the center, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain the chicken; set aside. Whisk together the sour cream and cream of chicken soup in a large bowl. Stir in the chicken, then transfer the mixture to a 9x13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle the cracker mixture on top.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly, 25 to 30 minutes.

I made this for dinner last night and my family and I loved it! I did a few alterations, but they were quantity ones. I used one soup can size of chicken broth, 3 cups of water with added chicken bouilon cubes, 2, I used 2 cans of cream of chicken soup with a 16 oz container of sour cream.I had vegetable flavored ritz crackers and used 4 tbls of melted butter. By the way these crackers are good. I made rice and brocolli on the side and they spooned the chicken casserole over the rice. Very, very good!! My husband really enjoyed it and my daughter had 2 helpings. I loved it also. Thank you for a gret recipe!

Taste was great, but lacked substance. I didn't use the full amount of sour cream and cream of chicken soup that was listed, but was still too much and runny. Next time I'll use less and add in vegetables.

I thought this recipe was great! Good Job!

Ageless recipe!!! I add mushrooms and use yogurt instead of sour cream.

Incredibly easy and so good. I used my George Forman grill to cook the chicken and then shredded the chicken before adding it to the soup/sour cream mixture. I served this over basmati rice and it was wonderful. For our personal tastes it does need seasoning but this recipe can be easily adjusted and modified in a variety of ways.

I've been making a variation of this casserole for years. I use bone in breast and thigh meat for more flavor and add cooked pasta.

made this today. cooked my chicken in crockpot on high about 4hrs. seasoned it with salt, pepper, poultry seasoning, and a little celery salt. shredded it and took it out and put the other ingredients in as directed. it tasted great but was too much liquid in it. next time i will only put half the cream of chicken and 8 oz of sour cream.
