  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Combine the butter, crackers, and poppy seeds in a bowl; set aside.

  • Blend the sour cream and cream of chicken soup in a bowl; pour half of the soup mixture into a 9x9-inch baking dish. Add the shredded chicken, then pour the remaining half of the soup mixture on top. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese, then top with the cracker mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese has melted and the sauce is bubbly, 25 to 30 minutes.

This is the chicken casserole I grew up with except we leave out the cheese. One tip from years of making it for those of you who work outside the home full time: put the boneless skinless chicken breasts (frozen works great) in the crockpot with a cup of water on low all day... then you don't have to boil the chicken when you get home and it is so tender and easy to shred with two forks. Also I used just 2 Tablespoons butter; it works fine for a sleeve of buttery crackers. Read More

For a first timer I did not know that you should toast the cracker mixture in a skillet and melt the butter in a skillet the addd the crackers and toast in skillet. Mine looks horrible. I hope it tastes okay. You should be more specific with the directions of the recipe. Idk if it s Edible or not right now. I m disabled and on food stamps. So this was a big waste of a meal if we can t eat this!???? Read More

I have made this recipe as is for years and is a family favorite. We spent 2 years in India and just because of being there I added 1 teaspoon of curry powder to this recipe and it was wonderful. I now make it often alternating using the curry powder. Read More

Very good for a quick meal. I used leftover KFC chicken from the night before to prepare this. I also added a little salt pepper & poultry seasoning for additional flavor. Read More

This reminds me of my mom's chicken casserole that I grew up with. It's always been my favorite dish of hers. The only difference is that instead of the cheese she incorporates a can of cream of celery soup (in addition to the cream of chicken) plus a little more chicken. Read More

My friend made me this dish when I came home from having my son at the hospital;) It's one of my favorites now! I made it like this except with 1/4 cup butter 1 tbsp poppy seed and I did not use the cheese but I think it would be good (I used more sour cream instead). But in my opinion cooking the chicken like this and shredding it is the only way to go for this dish! Read More
