Mom's old time chicken & Ritz casserole

sherry monfils


This was a staple in our house when I was growing up. We were quite poor & so these kinds of casseroles were a mainstay because of the low cost, since they could feed many on little. But they DID taste so good & that's why I now make them, poor or not!
