No, I have no clue who this "Pauline" person is, but this recipe is a family favorite. The original recipe that I received called for the sour cream and just to cook the chicken in water or broth. I altered it a bit to add some flavor by cooking the chicken in dressing and mixing in the french onion dip instead of sour cream.)

This is an excellent dish to make ahead of time for cooking later that evening or within a day or two (just be sure to add the crackers right before you cook it instead of ahead of time otherwise they get a bit soggy.)

How to Make Pauline's Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook chicken in broth (or in the dressing if you choose) in a slow cooker until it's cooked through. I usually wait until it's starting to fall apart - makes for easier shredding.
  2. When the chicken is done cooking, cut and shred chicken - you need enough to fill the bottom of a casserole dish about 1/3 of the way full.
  3. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  4. Mix mushroom soup and sour cream (or the dip) together and layer this mixture on top of the shredded chicken.
  5. Crush the crackers in a 1 gallon zip lock bag and pour in the melted butter. Seal the bag and shake well to mix. Layer the crackers on top of the soup mixture. Sprinkle with poppy seeds (as much or as little as you like).
  6. Heat through in a 250 oven for 25-30 minutes. (If casserole has been refrigerated before heating, you may want to heat it at 350 for 25-30 minutes)
