Gobble! Gobble!-  Instead of chicken, use Turkey! Have some leftovers from Thanksgiving? Making a casserole with leftover Turkey is always a great way to use it up!
Veggies- We used peas and carrots in this dish, but if you have another vegetable that sounds good, go for it!
Other Toppings- Yes, this is called a Ritz Chicken Casserole. But you can use other things besides Ritz crackers on the top if you'd like. How about some Doritos? Either Nacho Cheese or Cool Ranch would be yummy. Or you could top it with Panko Bread Crumbs, Potato Chips, Rice Krispies or even Corn Flakes!
Cream of Mushroom Soup- Instead of the Cream of Chicken, sub out for Cream of Mushroom for a slightly different flavor. 
Shave Some Calories?- If you're looking to make this a little lighter, sub out the cup of sour cream for a cup of plain Greek Yogurt.
