Don't let the name of this recipe fool you! This is a winner! (It gets its name from the fact that we make it whenever someone we know has a loved one that passes away.) It doubles very easily and freezes like a breeze. You can switch your vegetables around to the ones your family likes, too. We switch them out all the time depending on what we're in the mood for.

  • Mix crackers and butter together in a medium bowl and set aside.

  • Mix chicken, green beans, cream of mushroom soup, Cheddar cheese, sour cream, onion, bell pepper, garlic powder, salt, and pepper together in a large mixing bowl. Stir in half of the cracker mixture. Pour mixture into the prepared casserole dish. Top with remaining cracker mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly, about 35 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can use cream of celery soup instead of mushroom if you like.

You can make this as fancy and/or health-conscious as you'd like...even use fresh veggies or rotisserie chicken. The sky is the limit as to how you could put your stamp on this one!
