A creamy and indulgent bake with a standout topping.
As far as I can tell, any time “million-dollar” is included in a recipe title, it means there’s cream cheese involved, which is totally fine by me. That’s exactly what is going on with Million Dollar Chicken Casserole, which features not only cream cheese but a bunch of other goodies that make for one extremely creamy and comforting bake that also happens to be very simple to make. (Oh, there’s an irresistible crunch Ritz cracker topping too.)
Serves 6 | 5m prep time| 30m cook time
4 cups cooked chicken, chopped
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1 (10.75 oz) can cream of chicken soup
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1 sleeve of Ritz crackers, crushed
6 tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a 9-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.
In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add cottage cheese, sour cream, garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, and cream of chicken soup and stir to combine.
Stir in chicken and pour into the prepared baking dish. Stir together cracker crumbs and butter and sprinkle over the top.
Bake until bubbly and golden brown, 30-40 minutes.
