Chicken on the Ritz

Chicken on the Ritz

This is one of my mom’s favorite dishes. The delicious creamy chicken flavor, combined with poppy seeds and topped with buttery Ritz crackers for a little added crunch, make this a dish that is sure to be a crowd pleaser!

Makes one 9×13″ pan

2 (15 oz.) cans cream of mushroom soup

1 (16 oz.) tub sour cream

1 stick butter (1/2 cup), melted

1 box Ritz crackers (4 sleeves), crunched

10 chicken breasts, cooked, cubed

1 (10 oz.) frozen mixed veggies OR broccoli, cooked

2 t. poppy seeds

Boil chicken and season how you like (reserve 1/2 C. broth). Mix the 1/2 C. broth with sour cream, soup and 1 t. poppy seeds. Put cubed, drained, chicken & cooked veggies in 9×13″ baking dish and cover with sour cream mixture. Crunch up the whole box of crackers in a ziplock bag with melted butter and 1 tsp. poppy seeds and pour on top. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 40 min.

    We make one very similar. We don’t put veggies in it (usually have them as a side), and we put lemon juice in. We serve it over rice to make it go farther. It’s a family favorite!

    I’ve made this before only I’ve used cream of chicken soup. My girls won’t eat anything mushroom related. Thank you again Jill and have a blessed day.
