Recipe: Chicken Casserole

I'm always looking for easy recipes that are "man-friendly" (i.e. no vegetables) and my friend Danielle came through BIG TIME with this one. This is her now-famous chicken casserole recipe - and it is so delicious and probably one of the easiest things I've ever made in my life.

Here's the recipe - click on the image and see it larger. Ingredients: chicken breasts, 2 cans of cream of whatever soup, sour cream, ritz crackers and stick of butter.

First you boil chicken breasts - I always use a combo of thighs and breasts. I buy the frozen bags and then on a Sunday throw a bunch in the pot and cook them for about 20 minutes. Then they're ready to be shredded for whatever recipe I decide to make this week. I just pulled them apart by hand and scattered them in the 9x11 pan.

Then you mix 2 cans of soup with 1 "can" of sour cream. I used cream of chicken and cream of mushroom - I love mushrooms. Stir stir stir until it's all mixed together.

Then you spread the soup mixture onto the shredded chicken. It's sort of gloppy - so you'll have to plop spoonfuls and then spread it around.

Last step, crush a sleeve of Ritz crackers on top of the soup mixture. Let me say - this is the most fun part! Those crackers fall apart just by looking at them! I like leaving some chunks too! Then you melt a stick of butter and drizzle that over the top of the crackers. 

Bake for 30 minutes and you're done! It's great for a crowd or picky eaters. Throw together a salad on the side and dinner is served. I absolutely love this recipe and make it at least once/month!

Again - presentation isn't my strong suit - but it's sort of a casserole sloppy dish - not sure how to make it pretty. Luckily it tastes wonderful! And in the end, that's what matters!

Thanks to my friend Danielle and I hope you and your families enjoy!
