  • 3 cups cooked shredded chicken breast meat

  • 1 cup sour cream or plain greek yogurt
  • 2 sleeves Ritz crackers crushed
  • 1 stick butter, melted 1/2 cup
  • 2 tbs poppy seeds optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a 2.5 – 3 quart baking dish.
  • In a large bowl, mix the soup and the sour cream until well blended. Fold in the shredded chicken.
  • Turn into prepared pan. Top with cracker crumbs and poppy seed (if using). Drizzle melted butter over the top of the crumbs.

  • Serve with a green vegetable (I generally serve with fresh steamed broccoli)
