This is one of the very first dinner recipes I was taught to make. My mom use to make it a lot and it's one that I now make with my eyes closed. (wink)
When people ask me for the recipe I have to stop and think. I've seriously made it that much that I just - do it! I throw everything together, I don't measure.
It's my "go to" recipe when I'm having a group of people over because it has always been a hit with everyone! Including the kids!
It's so easy to make and smells so yummy while baking!
So here you go, one of my all time favorite recipes - Poppy Seed Chicken!
5 cups chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
1 cup sour cream
2 cans condensed cream of chicken soup
2 cups crushed Ritz crackers (about 1 1/2 rolls of crackers)
1/2 cup melted butter
1 T poppy seeds
*For my family size I more then double this recipe and always use a little more sour cream then what is called for. I also like a thick crust of crackers so I add to that as well.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Boil raw chicken breasts until done. Let chicken cool slightly and cut into one inch cubes. Place cubed chicken in a 9X13 casserole dish.
Stir together the condensed soup and sour cream. Pour over the chicken.
In a separate bowl, stir together the crushed crackers, poppy seeds and melted butter. Sprinkle over the chicken mixture.
