"I love this recipe. I got this from a friend who made it when my mom was sick. She made a double recipe and froze half of it. It was even better after it had been frozen."

  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.

I just thought it was way too buttery and the cream of chicken soup mixed with sour cream was too thick and salty. Taking this one out of my recipe box.

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! Than...
