Chicken Casserole with Sour Cream


Before you start cooking, gather all the necessary ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2 pounds)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 can (10.5 oz) cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables (peas, carrots, corn)
  • 1 cup crushed Ritz crackers (or any buttery crackers)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Step 1: Preheat Oven

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

Step 2: Cook the Chicken

  • Season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  • In a large skillet, cook the chicken over medium heat until it's no longer pink in the center, about 7-8 minutes per side.
  • Once cooked, remove the chicken from the skillet and shred it using two forks.

Step 3: Prepare the Sauce

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the sour cream, cream of chicken soup, and shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Mix until well combined.

Step 4: Add the Vegetables

  • Add the frozen mixed vegetables to the sauce mixture.
  • Stir until the vegetables are evenly distributed.


Step 5: Layer the Casserole

  • In a greased 9x13-inch baking dish, spread half of the sauce mixture evenly.
  • Add a layer of shredded chicken on top of the sauce.
  • Spread the remaining sauce mixture over the chicken, ensuring even coverage.

Step 6: Add the Topping

  • In a small bowl, mix the crushed Ritz crackers with the melted butter.
  • Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the top of the casserole.


Step 7: Bake the Casserole

  • Place the assembled casserole in your preheated oven.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the casserole is bubbly around the edges.
  • To check for doneness, insert a fork into the center; the casserole should be hot and the cheese fully melted.

Serving Suggestions

Step 8: Garnish and Serve

  • Allow the casserole to cool for a few minutes before serving.
  • Garnish with freshly chopped parsley or green onions for added color and flavor.
  • Pair with a side salad or some crusty bread to complete the meal.


Creating a delicious chicken casserole with sour cream is straightforward and satisfying. With these easy steps, you can prepare a hearty meal perfect for family gatherings or a cozy dinner at home. Give it a try, and enjoy the rich, comforting flavors of this classic dish!
