Poppy Seed Chicken Recipe: A Family Favorite! and "H" is for Honor...A great book for Veterans Day!

This post contains affiliate links.  

Several years ago a friend of mine handed down a great recipe that is so easy to make and so delicious!  

This recipe, called Poppy Seed Chicken, has become a family favorite that ALL 7 of us enjoy, from the toddler to the teens to the adults in our family.   I have also served it when family and friends have joined us for dinner and it's always a big hit!   

Poppy Seed Chicken


* 1 whole fryer chicken or 2 lb. chicken breast, cooked, deboned, and cut into bite-size pieces OR you can just buy a whole Rotisserie chicken from the grocery/Costco/Sams and cut it up into small pieces.  (The Rotisserie chicken option is so easy and economical!)
* 1 (8 oz.) carton of sour cream
* 1 can cream of chicken soup
* 2 cups crushed Ritz crackers
* 2 Tbsp. poppy seeds
* 1 stick butter, melted

Put chopped chicken in the bottom of a 13x9x2 in. casserole dish.  Mix sour cream and cream of chicken soup together.  Spread over chicken.  Mix crushed Ritz crackers, poppy seeds, and melted butter in a bowl.  Sprinkle over top of sour cream-soup mixture.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Serves 6.  Can be frozen.

As you share a family meal this week, may I suggest a great children's book that can be read aloud to children of all ages as we remember and honor all our heroic veterans.  H is for Honor: A Military Family Alphabet is such a wonderful book "from the Marine Corps' courage, character, and commitment to "mail call" and letters from loved ones, H is for Honor: A Military Family Alphabet, pays deep respect to the remarkable and outstanding group we call the American Armed Forces-the world's very best."  On Nov. 11, be sure to remember and thank a veteran for their sacrifices for our country!  Thank you and God bless!

That dish looks yummy as well as easy. I wish I'd planned for Veteran's Day. This books looks like a good idea to add to the list for next time.

It's a great book Tara with lots of interesting information. It's written in poem form and gives lots of detailed facts for each letter. Oh and I so wish I could plan for alot of things that I never get around to planning! :)

Thanks for your visit and comment!
