Chicken Casserole Mississippi
I learned how to make this while I lived briefly in the great state it's named after. Quite an interesting dish. It's creamy, has good chicken flavor, and is topped off with a crispy crust.

This is a good basic recipe. I read the reviews and modified as follows: 1. 1/2 diced onion, 1/2 diced bellpepper, 3 diced chicken breasts - saute those 3 ingredients in a few tablespoons of olive oil and add creole seasoning, salt, and pepper to taste. Needs seasonings or it will be bland! 2. Boil 16 oz. egg noodles. Drain and return to pot. Add cream of chkn, cream of mshrm, and 7 oz sour cream. Mix in chicken and onion/peppers. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mixing in the chicken instead of adding it to the top keeps it moist. 3. Put in a baking pan and top with Ritz and butter combo (minus the sour cream). Do all that and this is a fantastic dish!Read More
I think the recipe was misprinted. It was TOO DRY so maybe it should of said "add sour cream to the chicken mixture", instead of topping. I will not make again like the recipe indicated but will add veggies and MORE liquid...maybe another can of soup or chicken broth. Also not so much chicken! It had too much meat and not enough noodles.Read More

Yummy. I used 2 lbs of chicken and 16 oz of noodles to better suit our tastes. I used low sodium soup, low fat sour cream, and reduced fat Ritz. I mixed the sour cream into the body of the casserole instead of into the crumb mixture. For the seasoning, I used some dried herbs, dry mustard, a little curry, and black pepper. Also added sauteed mushrooms and frozen mixed veg. A lot of changes, but that's the way I cook -- look for a basic recipe and improvise. I think this is a very good basic recipe.

This was a HUGE hit at my house. I read the reviews and did make a few changes. You must add milk to this or it will be too dry. I will add even more milk next time. I also threw in frozen mixed vegtables which added a ton of color and texture to the dish. I skipped the sour cream and only used half the cracker topping. It was just right. We will make this many more times and would be great if you need something for a potluck. My husband thought is was like a chicken pot pie with noodles. YUMMY!
OK, I made some changes to the recipe...I used low fat soup, fat free sour cream, and low fat towne house crackers (a sleeve and a half). I used 6 boneless breasts of chicken cubed and a whole onion chopped while that was cooking I sprinkled about 1 tsp of garlic powder on the mixture. when that was done I mixed everything together in a large mixing bowl...I also added a bag of frozen mixed veggies. *** the one thing I noted in the recipe is that it calls for seasoned salt but it does not tell you when to add it in I added it to everything in the mixing bowl*** It was a little bit of work...but worth it, I will definetely make again. Thanks!
Delicious added some Durkee onion rings to the body of the dish and to the crackers on the top.
This was good. Made a lot of mess though. I added the mushrooms and broccoli others suggested. I also didn't pay attention and ended up adding the sour cream to the casserole rather than the topping. The casserole is very creamy and had good flavor. I used two chicken breasts and still thought I had too much meat and not enough noodles. Next time I will probably use one chicken breast and the same amount of noodles. I think it is a good basic started and you should feel free to experiment with extras.
This is a great recipe, using the suggestions in the reviews. The leftovers are great too! We all could eat it-my 85 yr old Dad, my husband and my teenagers. Thank you!
It was good but not so good that I would make it again. It seems like the sour cream should have been mixed in with the other ingredients instead of the topping.
We like this one I put some veg, in it we realy liked that also more cheese
WOW - What can I say - COMFORT FOOD PERSONIFIED!! Very good, but VERY fattening. What I would change next time: Omit the sour cream - not needed. Just do the crushed Ritz w/1/4 c.melted butter for the topping. Add 1/2 c. milk to the noodle mixture - makes it creamier. Add 1 can diced waterchestnuts - crunch would be good and possible 1 bag frozen chopped brocolli. I also added 2 cans of mushroom pieces. Fun recipe to experiement with. I'll make again.
We loved this recipe! of course, I did my own alterations to it. I put in onions, celery and carrots as my veggies. And, I know that I messed up on the crust. I had no crackers so I used fine bread crumbs; The bf liked it, but I didn't really give it a chance. I know that the real crust would be amazing by the taste of my pseudo-crust, so I will definitely make this again!
Not enough noodles for all that chicken! Not enough flavor, rather bland.
Easy to put together and tastes good, a good weekday meal.
ABSOLUTLEY EXCELLENT!!! IT WAS EASY TO MAKE AND THE WHOLE FAMILY LOVED IT!!!!
This was a great one. The grandkids didn't like it (they liked the jello) but the son-in-law actually complimented. That is a biggie. Thanks
This was a very good casserole.I also used less chicken then the recipe states and I used low fat sour cream and low fat soups. The topping was very tasty. I also added broccoli to the recipe.I will make this again.
I LOVED this recipe. I cook it differently every time i make it. I usually just mix the sour cream in with the rest and only put the crackers and butter on top. I like to add mushrooms as well and more noodles! It is EXCELLENT!!!!!
I was really impressed with this, it was WAY better than I thought it would be! Like everyone else, I made some changes; I seasoned the chicken with the seasoned salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning, added fresh mushrooms to the chicken/onion saute, added a bag of frozen green peas to the casserole mixture, and used the sour cream in the casserole part instead of the topping. I used a pound of chicken and about 12oz of egg noodles. I also added about 1/4 cup of milk Wonderful!!! Great comfort food!!
Very yummy recipe. I shredded the chicken and added more mushrooms, halved the amount of pasta (used remainder for a tuna casserole).
I made the recipe exactly as directed, and it was delicious! Even my small children (3yo and 18mo) loved it. My mom used to make this dish when I was young, and she lost her recipe. We had no idea what it was called. Imagine my surprise when I randomly made this casserole and realized it was one and the same! Yum!! SO glad I found this!
Very tasty, easy to make. I like a real crunchy topping so I might try a different topping other than the crackers but it still has good flavor and I'm sure I'll make again.
This one was a hit with my husband and my 9 month old! Mixed in sour cream and just put crackers on top. Definitely a keeper!
It was ok as far as chicken casseroles go. Next time I'm leaving out the sour cream. I think that was what threw the taste off a bit.
We really liked the noodles and the chicken mixture --very tasty--I followed the suggestion of the others and only used 4 chicken breasts-----I will have to add another can of cream of mushroom the next time I make this .
Very simple and tasty dinner. Will make again with some extra flare like peas, broccoli, or red peppers, etc. ... something with color to add spark to the presentation.
After I read the reviews and altered the recipe to suit my tastes, this was DELICIOUS! I used garic pepper, season salt and onion powder in the pan with the chicken. I used one can of Cream of potato, one can of broccoli cheese soup. I also added a half a bag of frozen broccoli cuts to the mix. This was fabulous. Dont let some of the bad reviews discourage you from trying..Create~Imagine~Spruce it up to your tastes! That is what I do with EVERY recipe I ever use! I will make this again~Yum
This is great comfort food. I boiled 3 chicken breasts and cubed. Added sour cream, canned mushrooms and 1 1/3 cup heavy cream to soups. I mixed my cooked noodles and chicken with 1/2 soup mixture and put into WELL greased dish. Topped w/ remaining soup then crackers. My children 3 & 6 both asked for seconds. Served w/ corn on the cob and salad. Yum!
This is a good base to a GREAT casserole. The original seemed bland to me. I made some changes and it was awesome. This is what I did. Used 3 breasts of chicken boiled then chopped, half the noodles, small bag of frozen mixed vegetables (I used broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, beans, red pepper) and I added a lot of spices. Onion powder because I skipped the onion, garlic, seasoning salt, cayenne, and paprika all used liberally. Like others I found it to be too dry when I mixed all of the above ingredient together so I just added a little chicken broth and an extra can of cream of mushroom soup. The sour cream cracker topping is amazing. DOn't skip it!!
Delicious recipe if you use about half the chicken! I was questioning the amount when I bought it and realized the absolute enormity of it when we were cutting it! Use about half the chicken and it turns out great! Would be extra good with a little bit of cheese in with it too!
The flavor of this dish was great. It needs some liquid though, maybe 1/2 cup of milk to make it creamy. It was too dry. Other than that it was good.
This pleased my family..which is sometimes hard to do. The only changes I made was adding in diced green peppers to the saute, and adding canned shitake mushrooms. It was pretty good.
Very good. Added extra sour cream and some cheese on top
This is a family favorite and I love it because it is so easy to make! I don;t put in as much chicken as the recipe calls for. I do it by sight. I also use extra cr. of Mushroom to make the noodles more flavorful. Leftovers are even better!
Although I only used about 2 pounds of chicken, I found this a great, and filling meal.
This was a nice "comfort food" recipe. The only changees I made was to add some fresh chopped garlic to the chicken as I was cooking and added a little shredded cheddar cheese while baking. Easy recipe
The topping makes this dish great.My whole family loved it.Following the advice of others that it was a little bland, I browned the chicken and onion in a dutch oven, then added chicken broth to the same pot, replaced the salt with season salt, brought it to a boil and cooked my noodles in the broth with the chicken and onions. After the noodles were cooked drained off the excess broth leaving the flavor behind.
An okay recipe, worth making once.
I have fixed this recipe for a Christmas Bazaar for 4 years now. We make and serve over 250 servings of this casserole. If the noodles are cooked properly and and the chicken in not over cooked, the texture is creamy and smooth. I put about 2/3rds the amount of chicken called for. The topping of sour cream, butter, and crackers is a perfect topping. WE get request from people wanting this recipe or a casserole made up for Christmas lunch or dinner. (27 casseroles were ordered last year) I think it is nice to add ones own style to a recipe, but this one is great if all the ingredients are prepared correctly.
excellent taste,creamy texture with a crunchy topping. Fast and easy to make,I made a couple of changes,used a box of Kraft macaroni and cheese,made as directed then added shredded Monterey Jack and Chedder Cheese,added sauteed mushrooms and garlic salt. YUM
I used less chicken and more noodles. And added frozen mixed veggies, but all in all, good recipe
Just wonderful. :) I mix the sour cream into the noodle mixture instead of the topping. I also add slices of swiss cheese to the top before putting the cracker topping on.
A very good basic recipe that would be easy to customize to individual tastes. I made it as directed except was using leftover chicken so I sauted the onion in a bit of olive oil. When I got to the topping I discovered that I was out of sour cream so I used some french onion chip dip instead. What at lucky mistake! It really added some zing to the topping and the entire casserole. Will be making this one again!
My family liked the recipe, and it is good for potlucks and things like that, but for a mom who doesn't like to dirty a lot of dishes, it probably won't be a regular thing.
I've had this recipe in my e-box for several years on this site and it is delicious! I do sub cream of celery for the mushroom and add sour cream to the chicken mixture, otherwise it is perfect as written! Thanks for sharing it.
I made a bunch of cassaroles to freeze one Sunday and this is one of the ones I picked. This is amazingly simple, yet elegant tasting. I had my boyfriend try all of them and give me a rating. I thought I wasn't going to have any of this one left! He kept saying "I can't tell if I like it yet, I need one more bite" haha, this is a definite keeper. I boiled the chicken and then diced it up and threw it in with sauteed onions, seasoned with a little Season All and this was delish!!
The whole family loves this! I combined the sour cream into the noodle/soup mixture as well...just seemed right. Thanks!
Was amazing, added shrimp, an extra can of chicken condensed soup, spices & peas. Left out the sour cream because I didn't have any.
I liked the crust, the rest was BORING! I won't make this again, but I'll probably use the crust on something else.
Perfect! Everyone loved it, even my picky 7 year old!
My brother and husband enjoyed this recipe very much, although I thought it needed more taste. If I were to make this again, I would add sharp cheese.
This was okay. Didn't come out like I thought it would. Probably won't make again.
I didn't like this much. It was pretty dry and bland. I think it was the crackers I didn't like, not to mention there's WAY too much chicken. I would recommend using only 2lbs of chicken, adding an additional can of cream of chicken soup and doubling the sour cream. Then add some more spices. This recipe inspired me to create a great recipe of my own! So thank you for that.
I used 1/2 medium sweet onion, no-salt seasoning and 1/2 the sour cream and it turned out just fine. It just didn't brown as much as I thought it would.
I agree with the many others that this recipe is a bit bland. It does have possibilities however.First of all, the sour cream must go. The buttery cracker crumbs will do fine alone. Maybe you can add some french fried onions in with the cracker topping. Definitely need to add milk to make it creamier and less dry. I think maybe some grated cheddar(even a little sharp cheddar) mixed in will add some extra flavor. I might even add some crumbled bacon. Adding some broccoli will make it a "one dish meal". Experiment a little and I'm sure you'll find this recipe does have some potential.I'm giving this one a 3 star just because it could be the start of a good recipe if your not afraid to experiment.
After reading the reviews I made some changes, I added a can of chicken broth, more noodles, broccoli and some spices. It was awesome! I will make this again for sure!
This was a very good casserole. It was easy and warm and comforting on a cool night. I had some left over bbq chicken breast. So i used that. The bbq favor was great! I will do this again
My family liked this dish well. I cut all the ingredients down to an 8X8 size dish. Which basically, cut everything in half...except the chicken, which was way too much to begin with. I used about 2-3 cups of diced chicken. I think it needs a little more seasoning, though, so next time I make it, I will add more. Thank you for sharing!
Big hit with the family - rich and delicious!
...Fantastic Flavor, and what a snap to make !!! ... A recipe that the Whole Family Loves!!!!
This is a good starter recipe, and we loved the topping, but it needs some veggies in there. I think next time I'd add some mushrooms and some frozen peas.
For how much fat was in this casserole, it didn't taste that great. The recipe wasn't real specific either. If had known this would fill TWO 2 quart casseroles, I would have cut it in half. This was way too much work for such a bland, blah, blah, blah casserole.
This was great.. I used reduced fat Club crackers (1 sleeve) and reduced fat margarine & sour cream. I used the 98% fat free soups. I cooked the onion with the chicken, I thought that the onion would be too crunchy if I didn't. I followed the rest of the recipe exactly. With all those changes, it was delicious!!
Great recipe, my husband and kids loved it!! Next time I think I will play with the recipe alittle since I felt it could have used alittle spicing up but defintely one worth trying~
My family loved this casserole. Even my 3 year old who won't eat anything! Very easy to make.
Very good and super easy!!! I used 1 can cream of celery and 1 chicken and topped with cheddar cheese as well. Will definately go in my rotation of favorite dinners.
This was VERY good. We all liked this meal, especially our 18 month old, who had 2 plates full. I added a can of milk to "loosen" it up a bit. The topping was a bit much, the next time I make it I will skip the sour cream, or just use bread crumbs.
This recipe needed some tweaking, but was overall good - I especially enjoyed the leftovers! I did add an extra can of soup because it was dry when I was mixing it. Also, I thought the sourcream should have been in the casserole, not the crackers, but I did make it the way the recipe said and it just seemed to get really rich on you after a few bites. If I make this recipe again, I will eliminate the topping altogether, or just sprinkle some seasoned breadcrumbs on top. Not bad for a hearty meal and plenty of leftovers!
Definately add a little milk to the soup mix and cut down on the chicken. Next time we will also cut down on the onion, but that is just because my husband and I aren't big into onion. We also added peas to the mix and little cheese on top. Sounds like alot of changes but all were pretty simple to make. And the end result was definately worth it. This was a great recipe! We will be making it again and again! Thanks!
Yum! Zing it up yourself. I added finely chopped onions, garlic salt and plenty of pepper to the crust mixture, as well as seasoned up the chicken/noodles with red pepper, green pepper and sour cream, plus a little milk to creamy it up real good. We dug it! (+ I'll apply the crust to a tuna casserole one day)
We rated this dish an "okay", but I won't go out of my way to make it again. I thought the topping was much too rich.
I really liked this dish!... I used about 1 1/2 lbs chicken instead of 3 1/2... It sounded like too much meat for us! I left out the mushroom soup and instead added sour cream and some heavy cream to the cream of chicken soup. I also added some shredded cheddar/jack cheese. Like others suggested, I added more seasonings; garlic salt, thyme and black pepper. Oh, I threw in about a cup of frozen peas and carrots. I will make this again!
My family and I really enjoied this!! I did make some changes though. I didn't measure out the chicken, I think I used more like 1.5 lbs., I used amish style noodles, that's just what I had in the house, I added extra season salt and garlic to the chicken saute, used less sour cream plus about a 1/2 cup milk and added it to the soup mixture, I then drained the noodles and put them back in the pot and added everything to it and then put it in a 9X13 in. pan. I used 1 sleave of crackers and a little less than a 1/2 cup of butter. Great stuff!
I used cream of celery soup instead of cream of mushroom and seasoned the chicken with Adobo while it was cooking (I only used a pound of chicken). I also threw in some frozen peas and carrots. This was a yummy recipe.
I liked this a lot. The second time I make it I mix everything together then baked.
This is a very good casserole,Easy to prepare and will fill up the most hungry of bodies. We had alot left for the work lunches. Thanks, southernmancookin
Not bad-tasting, but nothing we felt like eating again.
We had this for dinner, but it was not well received. I would probably not make it again. Too bland. Sorry.
Delicious. Your family will love this.
There was no mention of oil or butter in which to saute the chicken. I decided on 2T canola oil which worked out fine. Next time I'll also add some pepper and 1/2 t Tabasco. I followed another reader's suggestion and used a whole pound of noodles, but wound up having to divide the casserole between 2 baking dishes. There was only enough topping for 1 dish. The topping was quite thick and pasty. It was difficult to spread. It took a lot of effort to massage it over the casserole to spread it evenly. Next time, a tablespoon or two of milk might make it more spreadable. The topping was not brown and crispy when the cooking time was through so I opted to turn the oven to the low broiler setting for about 5 minutes to brown the top. 4 stars might be a little high, but my husband and kids liked it, so I think it's a keeper to build upon.
The topping in the recipe is delicious!
This will be added to my list of favorite comfort foods! I do agree with other reviewers that this is a good basic starter that needs tweeking.I added a can of mushrooms, a can of peas & carrots and a can of cream of celery soup to add creaminess with the extra ingredients. I sauteed the onions with the chicken just for a few minutes and added garlic to the chicken.I took the advise of others and doubled the topping and I'm glad I did.I'm giving this 5 stars because of the killer topping!This will make a great leftover tonight! Kid friendly too!
We were underwhelmed with this. I omitted the seasoning salt as most cream soups are salty enough on it's own and added fresh garlic and a couple choice seasonings from the cabinet. We ate it but we're just not into it.
yummy real good but next time i wanna try a topping thats a little less sweet...
this recipe is fabulous! I made it more like a casserole rather than just pouring the mixture over the noodles and chicken and I think it probably added a lot of moisture to it. I also added a small amount of chicken broth, milk, and ricotta cheese to it. In addition, I spiced it up a bit with paprika, black pepper, minced garlic, and garli-garni. It was so easy and made me love cooking. Definitely adding this one to my regular rotation. Enjoy!
This was GREAT! My husband really liked it. I had some left over and he said not to throw it away he would eat it tomorrow. He hates leftovers. The only thing I did different was I added black pepper and a splash of milk to the soup.
This was good. I added more spices, celery salt,onion and garlic powder powder. I also mixed the soup & sour cream together, by mistake, but the result couldn't have been better. Will most likely make again.....maybe the right way.
Very tasty. The only thing I added was peas for color and nutrition. I will definitely add this recipe to my favorites.
I was disappointed in this recipe. I thought it was bland. The topping was pretty good. I may use it on other casseroles, but the filling was very blah.
Nice recipe. I used Herb and Garlic Crackers which gave it a great new taste. I also added the sour cream in when I put the soup in.
Really liked it. Added some corn and green onion on the top when it was done. I think I will try some shredded cheddar next time!
This is a great recipe. My family loves it. I add canned corn into the chicken and noodles mixture. This way the kids will eat their veggies. I make this at least once a month. Very good!
Kids and family both loved this recipe, made great leftovers for lunches too!
I really enjoyed this recipe! Except I added 1/2 red bell pepper to the chicken and onion. Then when i poured it into the baking dish i mixed in 2 small heads of broccoli chopped up. Added more flavor and husband loved it too. I Will definately make it again!
this was good and easy would make again I added extra spices.
This was a good recipe for a quick dinner, a little bland but has lots of possibilities to add your own touch. Reheats exceptionally well for a brown bag lunch the next day.
This was not good. My husband and daughter could barely eat it. We ended up throwing it out.
When i came across this recipe it looked really good... When i was putting it together i put a little extra cream and a tad less meat. When it came to the toppings i put about a cup of crackers and ALOT of sour cream. I got spoon fulls of sour cream and put them all over the top and spread them out and to finish it off i put a little bit of shredded cheese all over it. Next time (and i advise to others making this recipe) to put french fried onions on the top. Thanks for the recipe, its a definite favorite of mine now!!! :)
