Poppy Seed Chicken


Today’s recipe is one that I got from someone in my neighborhood before I got married.  I have been making this now for over 16 years.  It is a family favorite and is one of those simple recipes for those busy nights.  It calls for 6 ingredients plus the cooked rice that you serve it over.  It is also an excellent way to use up leftover chicken.  This is good creamy comfort food!  I have altered the recipe slightly over the years.  I cut down on the butter along with the poppy seeds.  The original was just a bit much for our tastes.

 

Poppy Seed Chicken

  • 3 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 1 (10 3/4 oz.) can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 1/2 cup sour cream (I use light)
  • 1 cellophane sleeve of Ritz crackers, crushed
  • 4 Tbsp. melted butted
  • 1 Tbsp. poppy seeds
  1. In a bowl,  mix together soup and sour cream until well blended.  Stir in diced chicken.
  2. Spread creamy mixture into a 9 x 9 inch baking dish.
  3. In a large zipper bag, crush crackers.  Then add poppy seeds and butter to bag and seal.  Toss to coast.
  4. Sprinkle cracker mixture over chicken.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Serve over cooked rice.  Makes 4-6 servings.

  • LOVE the sound of this recipe and want to tell you how I found your page, someone had this recipe up for bid on ebay and has your stolen photo on their auction, so just want to make you aware that is going on. Listed under “POPPY SEED CHICKEN RECIPE”….. if you want, I can help you with exact link to the auction. Anyway, going to make this recipe soon, thanks for sharing it. :)

  • I love this recipe. I usually add cooked egg noodles in before baking.

  • I am going to try this ! It looks creamy and delicious! thank you:)

  • WOW! Thanks for the supper idea. This looks amazing! Can’t seem fo get enough of those poppy seed recipes!

  • We just had this in our freezer group. It freezes really good too. Just thought that you might like to know that.

  • I can’t use poppy seeds because my husband is subject to Dept. of Transportation random tests. That’s one of the foods on the no-no list. I will substitute almonds probably. Thank you!

  • I have this posted on my blog, too. It’s a funny story – I was watching my sister’s kids for a week, and this was on the menu for dinner one night. She didn’t leave a recipe with it, so I started looking through her cookbooks. I think there were several versions of this in every church cookbook she owned! But it’s definitely delicious and very kid friendly.

  • This is my family’s all-time favorite casserole. It is requested for every birthday and special event. The only thing I do different is serve it with Yellow Rice instead of white. The flavor of the yellow rice really enhances the casserole and makes it even better!

  • Ah! I’ve been looking for a recipe like this, after having it at a church function. Thank you! it looks awesome!

  • I make this all the time, it is my standby take to someone dinner. The only thing that I do differently is cook noodles and add them to the chicken mixture then I bake it. My MIL makes it with rice though and both ways are great!

  • One of the things I love the most about visiting great blogs like yours is I get to not only see food I’ve never seen prepared before, but you get to read about how they taste. Love it….. & now I’m hungry …. again :) If you wont mind I’d love to guide Foodista readers to your post. Just add the foodista widget to the end of this post so it will appear in the Foodista pages and it’s all set, Thanks!

  • Oh, that looks so good. I haven’t gotten good at copy/paste so I bookmark your recipes and put them in a file. This will be made This week. Have a great day.

  • copied and pasted! Can’t wait to try this great recipe of yours – thanks!! (p.s. I had a friend’s mom who made something similar in high school – just know this is going to bring back memories!!)
