Chicken Poppy Seed Casserole

This delicious, family-friendly casserole was first made for us by my friend Tina.

I asked for the recipe the next day.

3-4 chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
16 oz. sour cream
1 can cream of chicken soup (cream of mushroom will work in a pinch, of course, or cream of onion)
chicken broth
1 sleeve Ritz crackers
1-2 T. poppy seeds
1 stick butter

Cook your chicken and cut into bite-size pieces. Place it in the bottom of a lightly-sprayed 9x13 casserole dish. Mix sour cream, soup, 1 T. poppy seeds and enough chicken broth to make it soupy. Season generously with salt, white pepper, garlic powder, Adobo seasoning…whatever you fancy. Pour this mixture over the chicken.

Crush the crackers and sprinkle over the chicken mixture. Melt your butter and pour over the crackers. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Take out 5 minutes early and sprinkle with additional tablespoon of poppy seeds. Finish baking and serve with rice, a green veggie and a loaf of crusty bread.

This sounds like it would be worth driving to Minnesota for!

(As if the beautiful hostess wouldn't be enough of a draw!)

This recipe is awesome! It's great to see it in print - my mother-in-law has been making it for years but when I asked her how to make it she said she made it from heart and couldn't really tell me.
