Chicken Surprise Casserole

My sweet friend Annamarie brought this meal to us right after we had our son and it was so yummy. We have made it many times since because it is delicious! Our kids love it too. To make it easier on me I cook the chicken in butter and onions in the crockpot in the morning and then combine the ingredients whenever David is napping. Then around 4 I pop it in the oven. Super easy and really delicious! Thank you Annamarie!
Chicken Surprise Casserole
7 or 8 chicken breast halves (I have gotten away with only using 4)
1 box butter crackers crushed (about 2-3 sleeves Townhouse)
1 stick melted butter
1 can cream of chicken
1 can cream of celery
1 can water chestnuts, chopped
1 onion, chopped
16 oz sour cream
3/4 cup chopped celery

Cook chicken and shred. Saute onions in a bit of butter. Combine crushed crackers with melted butter, reserve 1 cup for topping. Pat remaining cracker crumbs into 13x9 baking dish. Combine chicken, soups, water chestnuts, onion, sourcream and celery and spread evenly over crust. Sprinkle reserved crumbs over top. Cover and bake for 30 mins at 350. Uncover and bake 5-10 mins longer. Eat alone, or serve with noodles.
