World Famous Chicken Casserole

August 13, 2010

I can say that. A friend from England loves it. In fact, everybody I’ve made this for loves it. So you will too. It’s a super simple recipe, originally gotten off the internet somewhere by my mother, but I lost the recipe years ago.

Ingredients for Chicken Casserole. Chicken, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, lemon pepper, ritz crackers, butter, poppy seeds.Start with the ingredients. Chicken, Ritz Crackers, Cream of Chicken soup, Sour Cream, Butter, Lemon Pepper, Poppy Seeds.

Shredded Chicken BreastBoil and Shred your chicken. Or do like my mom used to do. Skip the boiling and buy a rotisserie chicken from the store.

Chicken, sour cream, cream of chicken soup, and lemon pepper mixed in a bowl.Mix with the Soup, Sour Cream, and Lemon Pepper (optional, but we put lemon pepper in, oh, just about everything)

crushed ritz crackersNow, for the stress relief! Crush up Crackers in a Zip-loc baggy. Big, small, microscopic, up to you. I do a mix.

Melted Butter in a potIf you’re a normal person and own a microwave, dump your butter in a bowl and nuke it. I, however, do not own a microwave so I get to melt my butter the old fashion way!

Crushed Ritz Cracker, poppy seeds, and melted butter in a pot.Once butter is melted add the crushed crackers and poppy seed.

the topping for my casseroleMix well! Yum, my favorite part! Note: If your crackers look too dry or too moist, you can always add more butter/crushed crackers as needed.
