First candy and now this recipe. You can tell I've got the hungries. Actually my son is here and I always try to fix my children their favorite things. This is one of his and, believe-you-me, it is not on the healthy food list. However I did use reduced calorie soup and light sour cream. (The real butter probably negated those things:-)

Poppy Seed Chicken
(Recipe stolen from my sister -- Thanks Sis!)

5-6 large boneless chicken breasts
2 cans of cream of chicken soup
16 ounces of sour cream
2 t. Poppy seeds
Salt and Pepper
2 sleeves of Ritz crackers, crushed
2 sticks butter, melted

Cut chicken breasts in half. Boil in water with salt and pepper until chicken is done. Shred chicken and place in large bowl. Mix in soup, sour cream and poppy seeds. Pour into greased casserole dish or 9x13x2 inch cake pan.

Mix crushed crackers with melted butter. Sprinkle cracker mixture evenly on top of chicken mixture. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 30-45 minutes or until hot and bubbly.



  1. gosh, your son must live at the top of the bean stock----5-6 large chicken breasts would feed this boy her for a week and a half---hmmm, is that dish freezable? sure does sound tasty!!?

  2. never mind just read your comment on my blog and got the answer:---yes its freezable---GREAT!! (NOTE: add freezer bags to grocery list---check!)

  3. This sounds yummy and I love to try new recipes. I was going to make apricot chicken this weekend, perhaps I might try this one out! Thanks!

  4. I am definitely gonna try this. My hubby is a fussy eater, but I know him and my boys would like this. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Oh, this sounds yummy, but mighty rich with all that butter. Well, all that butter is what makes it yummy, isn't it? Going to try this one. Thank you for the recipe.

    Have a wonderful Sunday!


    Oh, and I really like the font here. So easy on the eyes.

  6. LORD, that sounds good!!! I hope no one had to get a drug test afterward....LOL

  7. I'm making this one tomorrow! Anything with sour cream and Ritz crackers has to be good!

  8. Gary, I'm glad you saw my comment on your blog about freezing it. We don't eat the whole thing at once. It's a small helping kind of meal.

    Marla, if you llike new recipes check the blog for Kitty Justice. You can always count on her recipes to be excellent.

    Yes Bonnie, it definitely is a meal for boys. And when the recipe says LARGE chicken breasts, it means large.

    Yes Renie, the butter is the killer part. But oh it is so good. Real butter makes anything good.

    Judy you comment about drug testing is so funny because we all sat there and the table and at about the same moment said, "Hope we don't need a drug test anytime soon!"

    Scarlet, you're so right about the Ritz crackers. Have you ever tried butterfly shrimp coated in Ritz cracker crumbs? Ummmmmmmmmmmmmm Good.

  9. Thank you for the recipes, granny. Will try one day.:)

  10. Chicken breasts are on sale right now! Is that serendipitous or what? I'll let you know when we've tried it..within the week, I'm sure. Thanks GA:)

  11. Venus66, be sure and serve the recipe to company. It does go a long way because it is so rich.

    She, I did not know chicken breasts are on sale. We have to buy chicken because I DO NOT serve up my girls. They have names.

    Nora, ummmmmm butter is right. Not on Weight Watchers I think.

  12. Wow, that sounds good.....Definately not on weight watchers....

  13. Sounds yummy.
    I cooked a chicken dish tonight using cream of chicken soup and rice.
    I copied this one, and I will try it.
    It sounds really really goooood.

  14. Yum!!!
    This sounds so good and hearty I will have to try this recipe soon::))
    Thanks for sharing!
