The best chicken casserole…

Poppy Seed Chicken

This recipe is hands down one of my favorites! It is so simple and can be thrown together quickly. You can even use a rotisserie chicken!! It is defiinitely a favorite of my family and friends. It pairs well with rice pilaf and any vegetable. Also reheats easily. I hope you enjoy!


  • 4 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp poppy seeds (if you do not have these, you can leave them out)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 sleeves Ritz Crackers, crushed
  • 1 stick butter, melted


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • In a large bowl, add the shredded chicken, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, garlic powder, poppyseeds, salt & pepper and mix until all combined. You can even throw all the ingredients in your Kitchen Aid if you have one!
  • Add to a 9x13 casserole dish that has been coated with nonstick spray. To make the topping, mix together the crushed crackers & melted butter. This is best done in a big ziplock bag. Add the topping to the top of the casserole.
  • Bake for approx. 25 minutes until it is warm & golden brown. Top with extra poppy seeds.
  • ENJOY!!!
