If you are looking for a healthy, low fat, low carb recipe, you should look no further than delicious chicken casserole with ritz crackers. For many people, this is one of the favorite methods of cooking a casserole as it is quick, easy to make, and gives you a tasty meal to enjoy!
Ritz Cracker Chicken is ideal for taking only five minutes to Prepare. First, melt the butter in a skillet. Next, add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Finally, spread half of the shredded Ritz Crumbs over the top.
Place the chicken mixture into your pre-heated oven. Bake on the middle rack for approximately one hour. When it comes out, shred the crumbs with a butter knife, then mix them into the prepared baking dish with the rest of the ingredients. Put everything in, making sure all of the ingredients are mixed.
Then use an oven thermometer to check for doneness. Chicken tends to be moister than other meats, so you may need to add additional chicken broth or water to make it the right thickness. If it’s not the right thickness, add adequate amounts of sour cream, cheese, chicken broth, and vegetables. Let the casserole cook in its liquid until the ingredients are completely cooked.
If necessary, continue cooking in the oven until the casserole is at the desired temperature. Then, unwrap the chicken casserole and allow it to cool completely before slicing with a knife and adding vegetables and any seasonings that you wish. If using crackers, you can easily cover the entire meal in them. Using aluminum foil to keep the crackers from sticking allows you to serve the chicken casserole as soon as possible.
You can also stir casserole ingredients together before baking. Add onions, bell pepper, mushrooms, garlic, and seasonings to a baking dish, along with enough vegetable stock to cover everything. Cover tightly and bake in the oven for about one hour, turning the chicken casserole with ritz crackers once or twice during baking time to ensure even cooking.
Another popular way to serve includes cutting your ritz crackers in half and adding about one teaspoon of your prepared Italian Seasoning to each quarter. Stir the mixture and serve with fresh parsley on top. Bake the chicken-and-potatoes combination in your slow cooker for about two hours until the pieces are done. At that time, simply open up your Tupperware container of “mini” or “wide” noodles and add your homemade chicken noodles to the mixture.
Serve up your Ritz Crackers and let your guests dive into your homemade chicken mixture. If you like, you can drizzle melted butter over the top. Allow your casserole dish to stand for a few minutes so that the butter can completely melt. Then serve up your guests and enjoy your homemade meal.
