Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Chapstick

This is one of my favorite dishes that I grew up eating. Even though I am grown and married and live far from mom, I still request this dish every time I go home. This is a very easy dish to change to suit your tastes -- use cream of mushroom or cream of celery -- whatever you have on hand. I also sometimes add a can of sliced mushrooms, or broccoli, or cheese, corn, peas, etc.

This is the same recipe I have used for years. It is so satisfying and so simple to make..... one of my favorite comfort foods of all time! Very inexpensive to make. I like it best "as written"; no other finessing is necessary!
