Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix together the cracker crumbs, melted butter, and poppy seeds in a bowl. Layer the bottom of a 9x13-inch glass baking dish with 2/3 of the cracker mix. Mix the chicken breast pieces with cream of chicken soup and sour cream until thoroughly combined, and spoon the mixture on top of the crumb crust. Sprinkle remaining 1/3 of the cracker mix over the top of the chicken mixture.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the casserole is hot and bubbling, about 1 hour.

My husband and I really liked this. The crumb mixture added a really nice touch. I didn't have poppy seeds and can't get them where I live, so I used sesame seeds instead. Next time I will shred the chicken instead of cutting it up into chunks, only because I didn't lcare for the chewy texture of the chunks of chicken in the casserole. It only took about 40 minutes to be hot and bubbly in my oven.

Delicious! I made this with light sour cream and light cream of chicken soup and you couldn't even tell! Our family devoured this--definitely will make again and again.

Wow! This is soooo good! The only things I changed was I used 1/2 C butter instead of 1 cup and 3 chicken breasts instead of 8. The Ritz crackers are a yummy salty little crunch on the top! Thanks for sharing Ladybug!

This really good! I've made several versions of poppy seed chicken and this filling is really good. I love that I don't have to cook it beforehand like some recipes. I prefer the cracker mixture on top also. Very good! I added some mozzarella cheese.

Best poppyseed chicken ever!!!

 
Feb 10, 2014

Fans of poppyseed chicken will enjoy this recipe. What makes this one different from my usual recipe is the layer of buttery crumbs on the bottom of the pan in addition to a layer sprinkled on top. Of course this modification tasted good but for my family, I'll probably stick to my usual to cut back a little on the calorie and fat content. We definitely enjoyed trying this version though.

Delicious! Served over jasmine rice. Not calorie friendly, but worth it for the best comfort food I have ever eaten! I cut recipe in half. Next time will freeze half for another meal. Only thing I added was pepper!
