Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole

April 19, 2012

If you’ve never tasted Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole, you’re in for a treat.  It tastes so much better than the name implies.  It’s very creamy – and calorie-laden! :) This recipe is very easy to put together. 

1.  Cook, debone and shred chicken.  Set aside.

2. Crush one sleeve of crackers and spread in bottom of 9×13 pan.  In a large bowl mix together soups, sour cream, seasonings, and 1 teaspoon poppy seeds; stir until well blended.  Add shredded chicken.  Pour over crushed crackers and spread evenly.

3. Crush remaining sleeve of crackers and spread over chicken mixture.  Sprinkle with desired amount (I use 1 teaspoon) of poppyseeds.  Melt butter, and pour over cracker mixture.

4. Bake at 375° for 20-30 minutes until mixture starts bubbling and crackers are a dark golden brown.
