Simple Chicken Casserole

This is an incredibly simple chicken casserole that can be dressed up more as needed. I’ve used crushed Ritz crackers mixed with melted butter as a unique and simple layer under the cheese.  It adds some great texture and saltiness while maintaining the traditional comfort food appeal.
