You guys, I can’t even with this recipe. It is all of the creamy, warm, delicious comfort food you could ever want wrapped up into one baking dish. I am in love. Cody is in love. Bode is in love. This recipe may go down in history as my family’s new favorite dinner! There is literally not one single thing I would change about it. Creamy Chicken Casserole with Buttery Cracker Crumb Topping will freaking rock your dinner world.
One of the best things about this recipe is that it e-a-s-y to make! Don’t let the secret out though–your family will think you slaved away at the stove for hours. Another bonus is that it can be prepped ahead of time. Personally, I love to prep ahead as much as possible to make for stress-free evenings. I made the base a day ahead of time and stored it overnight in the refrigerator. When I was ready to bake it, I mixed the cracker crumbs and melted butter together, topped the casserole, and popped ‘er right in the oven.
When I pulled it out of the oven, I could barely wait to dig in! The bubbly filling, perfectly browned buttery cracker crumbs, fragrant smell of thyme and rosemary, and beautiful eye appeal–it was pure bliss! Tell me I am not the only one that gets this excited over a casserole. Bueller? Bueller? Enjoy friends!
