Who doesn’t love chicken, cream sauce and buttery crackers? I know we do in our house! To complete the meal, I add wild rice and a green veggie as the side. This casserole can be thrown together in about two minutes, if you use rotisserie chicken. Or, throw the chicken in the crock-pot with a little salt, pepper and garlic powder in the morning before leaving for work. Then, mix the casserole together when you get home.
