If you’re looking for a new comfort food recipe this Ritz Cracker Creamy Chicken Bake has easily become one of our top favorite go to meals. If you’re like me and tired of making the same ole thing all the time, but also have had a lot of Pinterest fails then you will be impressed by this easy and quick recipe.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried new meals from Pinterest that look amazing, but just never live up to what they say. I can promise you that I wouldn’t take the time to share this unless it wasn’t one of our very favorites.
Also, warning…..this is not a fancy recipe blog and I must give credit where credit is due. I got this recipe originally from The Diary Of A Real Housewife and have made some of my own tweaks to it. If you want fancy videos and higher quality pics then check out her site. So far I’ve only tried this recipe, but it’s the real deal.
It’s one of those comfort food recipes that I would definitely whip up for a pot luck or small group at church.
