Chicken Poppy Seed Casserole

This is a comforting, easy little casserole. The filling is similar to one that I use for chicken pot pie. Very quick, buttery, and delicious.

Chicken Poppy Seed Casserole


2 (10 oz.) cans chunk chicken (You can also use the meat from a roaster chicken if desired)
8 oz sour cream
1 can cream of chicken
1 can cream of celery
Ritz Crackers, about 1 sleeve, crushed
Poppy Seeds
1/2 stick of butter, melted
Salt and freshly ground black pepper


1.Preheat oven to 325-f degrees.

2. In a 8" x 8" baking dish, place the chicken pieces along the bottom. In a separate small bowl, mix together the sour cream and the cream of chicken. Spread the mixture over the chicken in the baking dish. Season with salt and pepper. Top with the crushed Ritz crackers. Sprinkle poppy seeds over the casserole, lightly. Pour the melted butter over the top of the casserole.

3. Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes, or until the casserole starts to bubble.
