My husband and I really enjoyed this dish. Sometimes we find casseroles to be bland without any specific taste. However we were able to identify the flavors of the cream cheese sour cream and soups in each bite. The crackers added a nice texture. I made only a couple of modifications. First I added a layer of cheddar cheese before topping off with crackers - crackers stayed very crisp. I also used alot more crackers on top than the recipe called for - I found my casserole wasn't really covered with the stated amount. Finally I set my oven to broil for the last minute or two because the crackers weren't really "browning". With those tweaks the dish was really yummy and comforting.
My mom used to make a very similar recipe when I was a kid and we begged for it often! I think the only difference was that it had a little more sour cream and chicken and there was no cream cheese or crackers in the casserole mixture. I would put an entire tube of crackers of top after mixing w/ 1/4 c. of butter or margarine and cook for about 30 min. for a GBD topping. I've also played w/ adding some herbs (thyme tarragon whatever) or spices (pinch of cayenne extra black pepper). Make it your own serve w/ green beans and something starchy. Comfort food heaven!
I found that the topping was not cripsy enough to counter balance the creaminess of the dish. Suggestion: Sprinkle cheddar cheese over entire top of casserole. Mix cracker crumbs with melted butter and sprinkle over cheese. Bake for recommended time. If you would like more of a golden crust broil in the oven on low for a few minutes or until the crumbs reach the desired cripsness. Quick and easy recipe - and the family loved it!
PRETTY GOOD RECIPE!!! I'm pretty new to this cooking thing and found this recipe to be easy and delicious. I did make some changes off of some reviews I had read. I didn't put any crackers in the mix but still put them on top. I also used canned chicken out of convienece (I had it on hand and it was already precooked and shredded). I did think it was very rich but you can cut down on the fat content by using 98% fat free soup. All in all a good meal that I will make again!
This is one of my family's FAVORITE recipes (even the picky kids). It also freezes well -- I just mix everything but the cracker topping and put into a ziploc bag. To bake just thaw put into a casserole dish and add the cracker topping. We've also tried variations like adding ranch dressing mix or taco seasoning also with good results.
I thought this was absolutely delicious. I boiled and cubed my chicken before mixing it. I don't know if you were supposed to but it was much easier this way. Then mixed it up. At that point I didn't see why you should bake it. It was already hot! So I topped it with the crushed butter crackers then. And they didn't get soggy. Everyone loved it.

I totally don't get the rave reviews. There wasn't really anything good to say about this recipe. The kids ate it but not without a little complaining. Dh couldn't even finish his portion. Definitely won't be making this one again.
