Little Hen Casserole


I have made this recipe many times and my family loves it. The only thing I suggest is that you melt a stick of margarine and mix with crushed Ritz crackers before spreading them on top. Delicious served with rice.

You can’t really ever have too many comforting dinner recipes on hand, so pay attention and get ready to add this hearty one to your recipe arsenal. Little Hen casserole, also known as Chicken Little casserole, is a heavy hitter of a meal that’s got the “meat and potatoes” elements of your meal totally covered, which means less work for you regarding meal prep – yay! Those elements here are chicken and mashed potatoes, which all gets topped off with a spruced up gravy that tastes amazing and makes the whole dish perfectly creamy.

I took everyone’s suggestions and added half a can of milk to the soup, sauteed the onion and red pepper (added for color and flavor), sprinkled cheddar on top of the ritz crackers (which I also mixed with melted margerine as suggested). Sprinkled top with black pepper and garlic powder too. Served over Orzo and HUGE HIT here.

This is a basically a four step recipe, so anyone can do it and it’s 100% foolproof, especially if you start with all your ingredients already prepped and ready to go. Potatoes should be mashed and seasoned, chicken breasts should be cooked and shredded, cheese should be grated. This makes the assembly of this recipe go so quickly you’ll be sitting on the couch in no time, wondering if you actually made dinner at all. (Reminder: you did!)

YUMMY! one of my husband’s favorites – my mom’s been making this for years.

We boil chicken breasts in water with sliced onions and 2 chicken bullion cubes.

**Use chicken with skin-on and bone in then cool the chicken, remove skin, and debone in bite-sized pieces. take 1/4 cup of the broth made by boiling the chicken and add to the sour cream/soup mixture.

this adds prep time, but the taste is noticeably better!
