Mouthwatering Creamy Ritz Chicken Bake

Chicken never tasted quite so good!

This dish is comforting, delicious, rich and buttery with tender bites of chicken ~ a recipe that’s in about any community or church cookbook, and surprisingly, there are a minimum of variations from one recipe to the next.

For this creamy casserole, mix chicken with condensed chicken soup and sour cream, top with Ritz cracker crumbs, poppy seeds, French fried onions, and butter.  Season with pepper, and you will have a comforting dish that will appeal to your whole family and friends.

Ready for oven
Voila!  Dinner's ready!

I gently poached (boiled) the chicken breasts in salted water.  Meat from a rotisserie chicken would work well also, use plain Ritz crackers, if you prefer.

The next time, I will add canned sliced mushrooms to the dish.  If you want, add shredded cheddar cheese to the topping ~ it’s a casserole ~ about anything goes.

 This is American comfort food at its best, easy with a few simple ingredients!

As a note:

There was a conflict on my blog with the original post for this recipe, it corrupted other recipes. I re-posted it, but lost the comments.

Thanks so much to all of you for your kind comments on the original post!  


  1. Pam, Looks and sounds great to me! We have a few comfort food meals that we really enjoy ourselves and this one would be worth adding to our repertoire. Our favorite is spiced up cream of chicken soup with added half and half milk, red pepper flakes, pepper, garlic, onion flakes and some chicken seasoning baked in the over with boneless skinless chicken breasts. We typically serve it over rice. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

We went for Sunday rides in the Model-T when my grandmother didn't visit. My parents liked the orange groves, miles and miles of orange trees always either in blossom or full of oranges. My parents had a picnic basket and a metal chest. In the metal chest were frozen cans of fruit on dry ice, and in the picnic basket were weenie and liverwurst and salami sandwiches, potato chips, bananas and soda-pop. The soda-pop was shifted continually back and forth between the metal box and the picnic basket. It froze quickly, and then had to be thawed.
