Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Expat in Holland

I cannot remember for sure where this recipe came from, however it may have been a Southern Living Magazine. It is fast easy and always pleases the family. A nice do ahead meal that I have used for buffets or just having friends over for a quick get together.

Yummy! Definitely better than those usual poppy seed chicken recipes that don't contain onions or garlic. I added extra green onions but that's all I changed. This is a perfect way to use leftover chicken (or turkey). Thanx for sharing!
