I looked all around and couldn't find this recipe that came with noodles. I can't imagine it without noodles!

Wow! This is a winner for sure. I did throw in about of cup of fresh mushroom slices on top of the noodles. I agree that the noodles make it a complete meal. The whole family loved it. Thanks,Carole in Orlando

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 -3 cups cooked chicken (I use the fully cooked rotisserie chicken from the store)
  • 16 ounces sour cream
  • 10 ounces cream of chicken soup
  • 35 Ritz crackers (one whole package)
  • 16 ounces wide egg noodles
  • 12 cup butter
  • poppy seed


  1. Cook a little over half the bag of egg noodles until done.
  2. In a bowl,combine the chicken, cream of chicken soup, and sour cream. Mix well.
  3. In a 9x13 take a small chunk of cold butter and rub the bottom of the pan. This insures that the noodles will not stick or become crispy. (I find that this is the only way that works for me. Using spray Pam has always made my noodles on the side crispy.)
  4. Spread noodles over greased pan.
  5. Spread the chicken mixture on top making sure to cover all the noodles well.
  6. Melt the stick of butter and crumble the whole package of Ritz crackers in it and mix until crackers are saturated. Spread on top of chicken mixture.
  7. Sprinkle Poppy Seeds on top.
  8. Cook uncovered at 350 for 30 minute or until hot.
