1 8 oz. package of Ritz or Town House Crackers (because we can’t get Escort crackers anymore) crushed
1 stick of butter, melted
mix together and press the mixture on bottom of 9" x 13" pan
Cover this layer with cut up pieces of cooked chicken or turkey. Its best if you use a mixture of white and dark meat. I usually boil three or four chicken breasts or a couple breasts and some thighs or legs for the dark meat. Use enough to cover the crust. (about 3 cups)
1 8 oz. can of sliced water chestnuts, drained. Place over chicken.
Mix together 1 can of cream of chicken soup and 1 can cream of mushroom soup together with 1 cup sour cream. Pour this over the chicken/water chestnut layer.
Sprinkle remaining cracker crumbs over the top. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. I usually put foil over the pan for the first half hour and remove it for the last half hour so it browns.
I like to put a cup of frozen green peas on before the soup mixture, but not everyone in my family likes peas so then I just serve them on the side.
