Kathie's notes for this recipe:
This recipe comes from our church cookbook. These ladies can cook! This casserole is easy, looks pretty and is rich-tasting. It can be lightened by using fat free soups and sour cream.

This recipe was a real hit with everyone in the Test Kitchen. It is so very filling and we made a meal out of it by pairing it with a nice green salad.


Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces, or, if you use the canned chicken, drain and break up pieces.
Mix the soups and sour cream in a large bowl.
Add the chicken and mix.
Put in a buttered casserole dish. Top with crackers and drizzle with melted butter. Sprinkle with poppy seed.
Bake at 350 degrees about 30-35 minutes or until bubbly and light brown.

I'm glad you liked it. Just a word of warning in case you don't know. If anyone in your family works where random drug testing is done you should know that poppy seeds can give a false positive reading in tests like this. We had a friend who had eaten poppy seed cake the day before and tested positive. He had no idea why but further testing showed what had happened and he was exonerated. But he won't eat poppy seeds anymore!

Love this recipe. I fix rice and serve the chicken on top. Makes it go further. It also gives it a little different texture and flavor.

I first ate this chicken casserole 24 years ago at a church potluck and it is still my favorite chicken recipe.
