Dieters, take heed, this recipe is probably not for you. On the other hand, those seeking warmth & comfort from a down-home Southern casserole, you're welcome. The healthy thing to do, would be to serve this with a side salad, or some kind of vegetable, but I usually serve it with Velveeta shells & cheese. That's how I roll.

Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole
(my grandmother's recipe)


*2 cups shredded chicken
1 cup sour cream
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 stick butter
2 tbsp poppy seeds
1 1/2 stacks of Ritz crackers


Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Shred chicken & place in bottom of 8x8 (square) casserole dish
Mix sour cream & soup in a bowl & pour over chicken
Crush Ritz crackers & sprinkle over sour cream/soup mixture
Melt butter, then pour over Ritz crackers
Sprinkle poppy seeds on top of everything
Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes

*I got lazy & bought canned chicken (GASP!). I used the 12.5 oz can of Tyson Premium White Chunk Chicken, FYI.

You'll notice there are double the amount of ingredients in the picture than listed in the recipe. That's because I doubled this today - half for us, half for Mister Cathope. Delish!
