Savouring Saturday: Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole

This is a classic savoring saturday that my momma would make for dinner sometimes. I made this for some friends that came over for dinner the other night, such an easy dinner that is filling and fast! score! I love the golden brown top it gets with the black poppy seed encrusted on top, MMMmmmm 🙂



  • 6 chicken breast halves cooked and cut into strips
  • 2 cans condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 8 oz monterey jack cheese
  • 3 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 2 packages ritz crackers crushed
  • 1  1/2 stick melted butter
  • 1 bag broccoli


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange cooked chicken strips and broccoli into bottom of 9 by 13 pan. Season with salt and pepper. Stir together soup and water in a sauce pan over medium heat to remove lumps. Remove from heat and add sour cream. Stir in cheese and 1  1/2 poppy seeds and pour mixture over chicken. In a separate bowl mix together remaining poppy seeds, cracker crumbs and melted butter. Sprinkle over chicken and broccoli mixture and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Enjoy!
