Poppyseed Chicken

For Guinea Pig Thursday (Wednesday rather) - we had Poppyseed Chicken. I'd had this before, but never made it myself. I have a really bad habit of changing things in a recipe before I've even made/tried the dish - and it took all my will power not to change this recipe. As I was making it I kept thinking - holy crap, this is a lot of butter!! And it was. But it sure did taste great!! =) Our guinea pig was Jordan, Ry's brother.

Poppyseed Chicken
  • 4 large chicken breasts, cooked & diced
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted (could be less)
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 12 oz sour cream
  • 1 1/2 rolls Ritz crackers (could be reduced fat, but not reduced sodium)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 Tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked rice (could be more, even doubled)
Cook the rice & put in bottom of greased 9x13 pan. Mix chicken, 3/4 c. melted butter, chicken soup, & sour cream. Pour over rice. Crush & mix together crackers, 1/2 cup melted butter, & poppy seeds. Sprinkle over the casserole. Bake for 30 min at 350 degrees.

*Do not substitute butter for margarine - my sis-in-law who gave me this recipe tried that once & said it turned out weird.
