Misty's Chicken Poppy Seed Casserole
This is my cousin Bradley with his beautiful wife Misty, son Noah, and daughter Ava-Grace (who I am dying to meet at Christmas!)
Last Christmas Misty made this delicious casserole and we all loved it.
Misty was surprised I hadn't had it before - it's a variation on the chicken and soup casseroles that are so popular in the South. Great for a big group gathering. And delicious!
I baked my chicken breasts by seasoning them with salt & pepper and cooking at 350 for about 30 minutes. Then I shred them in my trusty big blue bowl and mixed in soups and sour cream.
Then I spread it in a baking dish and covered with poppy seeds.
This is 3 good pinches of poppy seeds. I will probably go to 5 next time because I liked the flavor.
*Note to self - you now have 3 jars of poppy seeds. Stop buying them thinking you don't have any.*
Then I crushed a sleeze of Ritz crackers and Thomas melted a stick of butter and drizzled it over the top before baking at 375* for 45 minutes.
I served it over rice and it was delicious.
I knew David would love it, and he did.
This makes a very creamy dish.
You could add more chicken or cut back on the soups if you want it less creamy.
