Tasty Tuesday – This recipe is not drug test friendly…

Poppy Seed Chicken

What did you think it was going to be?!? :)

This is a recipe that my mama made when we were growing up. She got it from our family friend Kathy and it is DELICIOUS! I hadn’t had it in years but my mom recently made it when I joined my sister in law’s weekly dinner with them. My mom gave me the recipe – – I adapted it slightly and it is OH-SO-YUMMY!

Poppy Seed Chicken

Serves 4-6


  • 4 chicken breasts or 1-2 c. shredded Rotisserie chicken (already seasoned packs more punch!)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1-2 T. olive oil
  • 1 t. minced garlic
  • 2 can of soup – any combination of cream of chicken, cream of mushroom or cream of celery
  • 4 oz sour cream or greek yogurt
  • 1/2 pack ritz crackers
  • 2 T. melted butter
  • 1 T. poppy seeds
  • 1/2 pack of silvered almonds

1. Cook 4 chicken breasts and shred or cut in small pieces. If you want EXTRA flavor use a Rotisserie chicken! (Even better if you made Pastor Ryan’s Herb Roasted whole chicken and froze some of the leftovers! If using Rotisserie chicken, just set it aside.)

2. Saute your onion on olive oil and garlic until you get all those flavorful brown bits (a dutch oven is perfect for this dish because it’s the only pan you need!)

3. Add in your chicken and stir all the yummy flavors together. Mix in soups and greek yogurt or sour cream.

4. If you’re not using a dutch oven, put this mixture in a casserole dish (8×8 pyrex dish should do)

5. Crush the ritz crackers and sprinkle on the chicken mixture. Pour on the melted butter then sprinkle on poppy seeds and silvered almonds. Doesn’t it look great?!?

6. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. While it’s baking, make some brown rice to serve it on.

OOOH that’s looking and smelling good!

Yes please. Serve it on top of rice with a green veggie on the side.


(ps – please blame Dan McIntyre for this risque title. He said sketchy titles would get more readers! HA!)
