Creamy Poppyseed Chicken Casserole

I was sitting in the break room at work when my co-worker was warming up her lunch.  It smelled amazing!!  So I simply had to ask what she was eating and can I get the recipe! 
She told me the recipe and she thought I was insane for never having tried it before…my mom made casseroles often but apparently she didn’t get the memo about this recipe.
When I first started making this recipe I thought it seemed really blah with the ingredients and not much flavoring.  I was thinking dinner was going to be pretty boring and well, just taste like cream of chicken soup.  I never really thought poppyseed had much flavor but I think baking them helped release the flavoring.
Creamy Poppyseed Chicken Casserole
2-3 chicken breasts, boiled and shredded
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup sour cream
1 Tbsp poppyseeds
1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
10-15 Ritz crackers, crumbled
2 Tbsp butter, melted
In a bowl combine chicken, cream of chicken soup, sour cream and worcesthire sauce.  In another bowl melt the butter, add in the crumbled crackers and poppyseed.  In sprayed 13×9 dish lay out your chicken mixture and top with the crumbled cracker mixture.  Bake at 350 covered for 15 minutes, remove foil and bake another 10 minutes.
Serve immediately.

My notes:
We were thinking the next time we make this recipe that we should add some white rice and then add the chicken mixture on top.


  1. Hi, stopping over from What’s In Your Kitchen Wednesday! I saw your picture and thought your dish looked so good! I was also intrigued by the poppyseeds. This is my kind of recipe…a reasonable number of ingredients and a reasonable number of steps! :)

    If you get a chance, would love for you to stop by the link party I am cohosting!

    Thanks for the great recipe…I have poppyseeds in my cupboard that I would like to use, and this will be a great dish for it!
