Poppy Seed Chicken

Poppy Seed Chicken

4-5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and cut up into cubes
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 1/2 tubes Ritz crackers (I try to make this easier by leaving the crackers in the tube, then I put that in a bowl, just in case of an explosion, and use a can to brake them.)
16 oz. container sour cream
1/2 c. melted butter
poppy seeds

Spread cooked chicken pieces in bottom of a 9x13 ungreased pan. Stir together soup & sour cream in bowl and then spread on top of chicken. Crush the crackers into little pieces and mix with melted butter, then sprinkle over the soupy mixture. Top it with plenty of poppy seeds (for looks and crunch). Bake @ 350 for 25 min.

*I serve this over sticky rice, but any rice is yummy.
*I find that the best way to cook the chicken for this is pretty simple:
1) I cut the chicken up into bite sizes and season it with sea salt (any salt will do) and pepper.
2) Then get a large pan nice and hot...probably medium high and coat the bottom of pan with extra virgin olive oil. When you put the ck in pan it will sizzle at you pretty good, but leave it there for a few minutes before you flip it over so it will get nice and caramelized. Don't over cook it because it will cook some more in the oven later. ENJOY!!!

That sounds so yummy! Bart would die though if I made that...he has lost over 45lbs. on Weight Watchers and is my lean machine now. Next is my turn if I can resist chocolate, cheese, mayonnaise & butter...ah! My love affair with food...it keeps me well padded.

This is so fun to keep in touch with you! Dallas just woke up from his nap & was excited to see baby Tate. We like this recipe too. I think Anna made it for us when we first got married!

I love this recipe too...wasn't this a big hit at one of our relief society's gathering? My only problem is finding poppy seeds, where do you buy them?

HEY GIRLS!!! Wow, it is so nice to see all you popping in and leaving me comments...it makes my day (pretty pathetic, I know :)
I am pretty sure you can find poppy seeds in the spice section of your grocery store :)
