Creamy Broccoli Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole

 

Mmmm. 
Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole. 

When out to lunch with a friends a couple of months ago, the "Special" at 2 different restaurants on 2 different dining occasions (relatively close in dates) was Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole. 
It's catching, obviously. 

One recipe was a Cheesy Broccoli Poppy Seed Casserole while the other was a Traditional Creamy Casserole. 

What did I do? 
I kind of combined them...
Creamy Broccoli Poppy Seed Casserole.

I generally followed a recipe from www.fo1.2od.com as my start. 
Then "tweeked" it. 
I can't help it. 

Nothing like a nice hot casserole after a day's work at the office


Ingredients:
  • 3 cups cooked chicken breasts, shredded
  • 1 (10.5 oz) can of cream of chicken (I used low sodium)
  •  1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 1 Tbs poppy seeds
  • 1 steam-able bag of frozen broccoli
  • Ritz Crackers, finely crumbled
  • 2 Tbs light butter
  • 1/3 cup of Chicken Stock or Milk (er....just "eyeball it")
 Directions:
  1. Preaheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Microwave Broccoli for about 3 minutes (Not all the way cooked through). Set aside.
  3. Combine Chicken, cream of chicken, sour cream, poppy seeds, broccoli, and chicken stock/milk. Stir until mixed well. 
  4. Use non-stick spray in a casserole dish. Add chicken mixture. 
  5. Top with crumbled Buttery crackers 
  6. Drop little pats of butter on top of crumbs
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. 
  8. Serve and Yum!
