Easy Chicken Casserole Recipe

I never bring home leftovers whenever I take this creamy, stick-to-your-ribs casserole to a potluck. Its mild flavor has broad appeal. I especially like the way that the crumb topping adds a bit of crunch to each meaty serving. -Faye Hintz, Springfield, Missouri

"This was an easy way to use leftover chicken. I substituted cream of mushroom soup because that's all I had in the pantry. Served it over rice & everyone enjoyed it."

"My father-in-law likes bland, so this is a good recipe for him. I add some chopped leftover spaghetti and cheese to make an easy meal. I make a smaller batch for just the 2 of us when I have a little leftover chicken."

"Wonderfully tasty recipe and easy enough for my 12 year old daughter and I to make together! Used lemon pepper and fresh parmesian w/the crushed butter crackers. Rice would be wonderful, but couldn't convince my egg noodle loving family!"

"This is a very easy recipe and very delicious! The only thing I did different was I put a layer of rice underneath the chicken mix and I used saltines as that is all I had on hand. I added the rice under before baking so the rice would absorb some of the flavor. Very good flavor!"

"My family ate every bit of this. The changes I made were to add some dried parsley to the mix for color and instead of the crackers I used fried onions on top, like the kind you use for green bean casserole at Thanksgiving. Turned out great."

"I usually double the amount of crackers for the topping. Yes, it is "bland", but in the same way macaroni & cheese is bland. There may not be a million flavors happening at once, but it is the definition of comfort food."
