Loved this casserole. This is just the flavor that I have been looking for. May add broccoli but was wonderful as is.
What a wonderful chicken and rice recipe!!! We have always loved (my kids favorite meal) my sisters recipe for Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole, which we have always had over egg noodles, but I had heard others had it with rice, so I had to try your version. Definitely wasn't disappointed with this version and it really was like a new meal, quite different from our version. But I do admit to adding more like a cup of the crushed crackers, love those on top. My 20 yo DS, who is off on his own for college, wants to try it this Friday when he is home. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for Fall PAC 2012.
