this dinner is delicious! this is a great meal for your family, or to take to someone who is sick or just had a baby. now, i will warn you-this isn't on my top 5 list of most nutritious meals. and i know a couple weeks ago, i wrote about how i don't usually like recipes that call for a lot of creamy soups. perhaps i was a little too harsh. trust me-this one is worth it! it is so easy, but tastes wonderful. i guarantee that your friends and family will love it. this is also a great meal to freeze. last week i doubled the recipe and divided it into 4 smaller batches. we had one for dinner and i froze the other batches in 8x8 pans. this is a great meal to have on hand for a comfort food type dinner! i completely forgot to take pictures, and i also made a recipe for bean bundles, which are also extremely easy, delicious, and impressive looking. i will post the bean bundles the next time i make them (i also doubled that recipe and froze three small batches, so i'm sure we'll be eating one soon!), i'll be sure to take pictures and post them so that you can see what they look like before you make them.
poppy seed chicken
from the christmas cottage cookbook
I N G R E D I E N T S :
4-6 chicken breasts (i use boneless, skinless chicken breasts)
1 cup sour cream
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of celery soup
1 small package of slivered almonds
1 stick butter, melted
2 Tbsp. poppy seeds
1 stack Ritz crackers, crushed
D I R E C T I O N S :
cook chicken (i usually boil or poach it). cut into bite-sized pieces and mix with sour cream, soups and almonds. pour into a 13x9x2-inch casserole dish (or 2 8x8 dishes). mix the topping ingredients together and drizzle on top of casserole. bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. it will be bubbly around edges. serve over lipton's (or knorr brand) chicken-flavored rice, if desired*.
*i make this with the chicken flavored rice (so easy) and bean bundles (recipe to come soon). It is delicious!
