Special Delivery Chicken

This is a delicious, creamy and easy recipe given to me years ago by a dear friend. 

With only a few simple ingredients, it goes together quickly, and your family is sure to enjoy it. 

As in most chicken recipes, this would be scrumptious using turkey as well. 

Enjoy this simple entree. It can be made a day ahead, and baked later.


2 c. (16 ozs) (lite, but not fat free) sour cream 
(I think using 1-1/2 c. would be plenty)
1 can (10-3/4 ozs) cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1 Tb. poppy seeds
3-1/2 c. cubed cooked chicken or turkey
1-3/4 c. ritz cracker crumbs (about 36)
1/2 c. butter or margarine, melted 

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 9" X 13" baking dish. 

In large bowl, combine sour cream, soup and poppy seeds.  Stir in chicken. Pour into prepared pan.  In small bowl, combine cracker crumbs and butter; sprinkle over top. Bake, uncovered, for 25 - 30 minutes or until heated through.

TIP: If making ahead, refrigerate prepared dish and add cracker crumb topping just before baking.
