Poppy Seed Chicken

Recipe by PersonsZoo

This a family favorite, any occasion, simple and delicious recipe. I use it with chicken or turkey and have found it to be a great way to use up those turkey leftovers after the holdays! I sometimes make it a day ahead, store in the fridge, and even occasionally warm it slightly in the microwave to cut down on the baking time.

One of my family's favorite casseroles....I have been making poppy seed chicken for over 30 years...it is simple but so delicious....I only use 4-6 chicken breast (or a whole chicken) and I add about 1-1/2 cups sour cream to the soup, but your recipe is the original one given to me years ago.....thanks for posting....
