Poppyseed Chicken

I/we apologize for the delayed posts recently. Both sweet toother's have been out of town for a while now, but we are doing as best as we can! So bare with us :) I decided to make poppyseed just because I was craving it. Poppyseed chicken is one of my favorite meals. It's easy, quick, delicious, and fattening.. whats not to like?  This recipe is a little different than some of the usual poppyseed chicken recipes, but it's my new go-to poppyseed chicken. Here's what you'll need
Chicken, sour cream, cream cheese, cream of chicken soup, poppyseed's, butter, and ritz crackers. Place chicken breasts in a large pot and fill with water until all the chicken breasts are covered. Bring to a boil; cook about 10 minutes. (Your chicken may need more or less time depending on the size) Also, I added a little oil to the chicken and water before cooking just to keep the chicken from sticking
Once the chicken is cooked, drain and let cool. Once chicken has reached room temp, cut into cubes or shred
Set in a bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, combine cream cheese, cream of chicken soup, poppyseeds, and sour cream
Stir together until well combined; add chicken
Spread into a 13x9 casserole dish
Top with one roll of crushed ritz crackers
Sprinkle with poppy seeds 
Pour melted butter over that
Bake about 30 minutes, or until crackers become golden. Serve warm 

Poppy Seed Chicken

6 chicken breasts, boiled and cubed
8 oz. sour cream
1 can cream of chicken soup
4 oz. cream cheese, soft
2 tsp. poppyseed's
1 roll ritz crackers, crushed
1 stick butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Boil chicken in a pot with a little oil and salt until cooked through. About 10 minutes (once boiling), depending on the size of the chicken breasts. Just make sure there is no pink or clear in the chicken when you cut into it, that means it is not cooked. Once chicken is done, let sit about 10 minutes. Chop semi-cooled chicken into cubes, set in a large bowl and set aside for now. In a separate bowl, combine sour cream, cream of chicken soup, cream cheese, and poppy seeds. Once well combined, add the cubed chicken and stir until fully coated. Spread into a 9x13 casserole dish. Sprinkle on the crushed crackers and poppy seeds. Pour melted butter over that evenly and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until warm and bubbly.
