    This sounds ok & easy, but it definitely needs a lot more flavor & add-ins, in order to make it a decent meal! I plan to add in some frozen mixed vegetables. I’ll use ‘98% FAT FREE Cream of Chicken Soup’, and ‘Daisy LIGHT Sour Cream’. I’ll increase the amount of soup & sour cream… and add (thawed) ‘mixed’ vegetables. This dish also needs a great deal of more seasonings, so add what you like. I’ll add garlic powder, onion powder, fresh chopped Italian parsley, sage, & rosemary. I definitely WON’T use Ritz crackers for a topping, since they’re SO NASTY TASTING! I don’t understand why anyone would use them on ANY casserole! I’ll use a pkg. of “Stove TOP’ Chicken Stuffing (prepared according to pkg. directions), and spread it over the top of the casserole before baking. I think you’ll like this.
