From Grandma Smith. From this recipe, I make one large casserole and one 8-inch round casserole. I think the recipe could be halved easily, but when making for myself, I freeze one casserole for later use. Freezes well.

  • Place chicken breasts in a large pot; cover with water. Season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover, and simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 15 minutes. Drain and let cool, 5 to 10 minutes. Chop into small pieces.

  • Mix chicken, canned vegetables, chicken soup, sour cream, water chestnuts, onion, and Cheddar cheese in a large bowl. Pour into a large baking dish. Sprinkle crushed crackers over the top and dot with butter.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the filling starts to bubble and the topping browns, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Use 5 to 6 cups of any cooked and chopped chicken.

Extremely bland even though I seasoned the mixture with salt and pepper prior to baking. I did not care for the crunch of the water chestnuts in this dish. Sorry but this is a recipe I can do without. Read More
