The world’s easiest and most delicious recipe…

Thursday, May 31, 2012

I mentioned Poppy Seed Chicken in my vlog awhile back and received a few requests for the recipe.  Sorry it took me so long to follow-through, but here it is!  This is my favorite childhood meal—the favorite thing my mom cooked growing up, what I always requested on weekends home from college, and now what I make for all of my friends who are sick or having babies {or both!}

Brace yourselves—it’s ridiculously easy and tastes even better.


What You Need:

  • Three to four chicken breasts, cooked and cut in small pieces {I usually boil it}
  • One 16 oz sour cream
  • One can Cream of Chicken soup
  • One tbsp poppy seeds
  • Ritz crackers
  • Butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix cut up chicken, sour cream, and cream of chicken soup together in a bowl and pour in a 9x13 baking dish. Cover with crushed Ritz crackers, dot with butter, and sprinkle with poppy seeds. Bake for 30 minutes.  Done.  Boom.

I typically use all reduced fat or fat free options for the ingredients and it makes no difference to the taste.  I serve this with white rice and a green vegetable {don’t try to go healthy with brown rice—it doesn’t work.  Embrace the southern—you’re eating a casserole!}.  It’s not the healthiest, not the worst, but SO, SO, SO good and easy.  It tastes like my childhood… Thanks Mom!
