Poppy Seed Chicken

Poppy Seed Chicken

     What better meal to throw together than a simple casserole.  I typically cannot stand casserole dishes.  I don't know what it is about them, I think it is the different concoctions that people throw together and bake in a dish, and the weird tastes that they have.  Either way, this dish is a good one.  It was inspired by a friend of mine, Jamie, who used to love this dish in college. She gave me a simple recipe, and I mixed it up a bit and added my own take on it.  So here goes, my version of a Poppy Seed Chicken.


  • 2 small chicken breasts
  • 1 10oz can cream of chicken
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • 1 cup uncooked egg noodles
  • 1 tbs ranch powder seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbs poppy seeds
  • 1 sleeve of Ritz cracker crushed
  • Salt/pepper

     Precook chicken by boiling it in water and dicing it up into bite size chunks. Cook the egg noodles as directed on box, drain, and sit aside. Mix together the cream of chicken, sour cream, ranch dressing powder, garlic powder, 1tbs poppy seeds, and some salt and pepper for taste. Stir in the cooked noodles and the chopped up chicken.  In a bag smash up the Ritz crackers and add the last tablespoon of poppy seeds. Spread the chicken mixture into a casserole dish and top with the cracker mixture.  Place in a 350 degree oven and bake uncovered for about 20-30 minutes.  Serves about 4-5 people.
