Poppy Seed Chicken

Cream of Something Soup Pin It
  • 5 cups chicken breasts, cooked and cubed (I used 3 large chicken breasts)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 can equivalent of Cream of Something Soup
    • The Original recipe calls for 2 cans of condensed cream of chicken soup
    • I substituted the cream of something soup and the recipe turned out wonderfully.
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp celery salt
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 cups crushed Ritz crackers (about 1 1/2 rolls of crackers)
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 Tbsp poppy seeds
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray cooking spray into 9x13" casserole dish.
  2. Cut the raw chicken into cubes and place into casserole dish. Spread just a little olive oil over the top (to keep the chicken from drying out) along with a sprinkling of salt and pepper.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes. Turn chicken over. Bake for another 15-20 minutes until done. It does not have to be browned - just cooked through at this point. Drain juice off of chicken in large colander and place back in casserole dish.  
  4. While the chicken is baking, this gives time to reconstitute the cream of something soup. Click on the link for the recipe.
  5. Stir/whisk together the condensed soup, sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, celery salt, garlic, lemon juice and pepper.
  6. Pour over the cooked chicken.
  7. In a separate bowl, stir together the crushed crackers, poppy seeds and melted butter. Sprinkle over the chicken and sauce.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until the top of the casserole is browned and the sauce is bubbly. Serve plain or over rice.
