This recipe is one of those delicious comfort foods that we grew up with.
Casseroles are seriously one of the hardest foods to photograph because they come out of the pan in one large, gooey scoop. :) So what this casserole lacks in visual appeal, it makes up for in taste and simplicity.
Bonus: my kids LOVE this and always ask for seconds!
Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole
2 cups chicken, cooked and diced
2 cups Ritz crackers, crushed
1 Tablespoon poppy seeds
1 (10.75 oz) can cream of chicken soup (I used 98% fat-free)
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (optional)
1 teaspoon minced garlic (optional)
1 Tablespoon lemon juice (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together chicken, soup and sour cream in a large bowl. Add in Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and lemon juice, if desired. In another bowl, mix together crushed crackers, poppy seeds, and melted butter and stir until butter is completely incorporated.
Spray a 9x13" baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Spread chicken mixture on the bottom and top with cracker mixture.
Cover pan with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 15 more minutes.
