How to Make Cheesy Chicken Noodle Casserole!

This Cheesy Chicken Noodle Casserole really simple and have all those things my family loves. It is egg noodles and chicken in a sauce made from sour cream, cream of chicken soup, cheddar cheese, and mozzarella cheese. That all goes into a baking dish and then it gets topped with crushed Ritz crackers that have been mixed with melted butter. 

It gets baked until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the Ritz cracker crumbs are golden and crunchy. 

All the men in my life went crazy over it and I won’t lie, I found it hard to walk away from too. I had no intention of eating this for dinner but gave it a try just to make sure it was okay and kept going back for more!
