    Annacia's Note:

    The original recipe of Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole belongs to diner524. When I made it to suite my needs she suggested that I post it as a new recipe. Here it is, it's very tasty and the fat has been trimmed significantly. diner524 adds the suggestion that this could be served with whole wheat pasta or brown rice.

      I made this on Saturday for our dinner with every dish having "poppy seeds" in it (a total of 6 dishes including diner524's original Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole, several sides and a dessert). I am still on "poppy seed" over-dose. I cut this recipe in half, except for the soup. I used an entire can Cream of Mushroom to keep it completely vegetarian for son's GF. Baked it in an 8x8 baking dish. They loved it. I had to give her the recipe before they left. Thanks for posting. (Made for PRMR)

      Good! I subbed cream of mushroom soup, though, to keep it strictly vegetarian. My carnivorous husband gave it a thumbs up, too!

      Very tasty, the poppy seeds added both visual and spice accents to help this escape from "blah." Supper doesn't get much easier than this. I recommend that instead of drizzling olive oil at the end, spray olive-oil Pam to help the cracker topping brown. Thanks for sharing, Annacia! Made for Photo Tag.
