EASY Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole

This is without a doubt one of the easiest and most delicious chicken dishes I have ever prepared and it makes a lot so it's great for a party or a large family but could easily be halved for a smaller family.

Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole

4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cooked
1 pint sour cream
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1/4 cup white wine (I used more for a more flavorful sauce)
2 sleeves Ritz crackers, crushed into fine crumbs
2 T. poppy seeds
1 stick butter or margarine

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut cooked chicken into large chunks and put in a 9x13 casserole dish. Mix sour cream, soup, and wine, and spread over the chicken. Mix cracker crumbs and poppy seeds. Melt butter in a skillet and cook cracker crumb mixture until lightly browned (DON'T skip this step - your crackers will get soggy if you don't brown them first). Set cracker crumb mixture aside. Bake chicken for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with cracker crumb mixture. Cook for 10 more minutes or till lightly browned and bubbly. Served 12-16.

Delicious served over rice.
