Chicken Poppy Seed Casserole

This is a comforting, easy little casserole. The filling is similar to one that I use for chicken pot pie. Very quick, buttery, delicious.

Chicken Poppy Seed Casserole
Serves 4

  • 1 roaster chicken, chicken pieces removed and bones discarded
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • 1 can cream of chicken
  • 1 can cream of celery
  • Ritz Crackers, about 1 sleeve, crushed
  • Poppy Seeds
  • 1/2 stick of butter, melted
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1.Preheat oven to 325-f degrees.

2. In a 8" x 8" baking dish, place the chicken pieces along the bottom. In a separate small bowl, mix together the sour cream, cream of celery and the cream of chicken. Spread the mixture over the chicken in the baking dish. Season with salt and pepper. Top with the crushed Ritz crackers. Sprinkle poppy seeds over the casserole, lightly. Pour the melted butter over the top of the casserole.

3. Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes, or until the casserole starts to bubble.

Recipe from my mom.


  1. My favorite thing about this recipe is that it doesn't use Cream of Mushroom like so many others (blech!) I can't wait to try it :)

  2. We love this casserole at our house! I got the recipe from a dear friend around 15 years ago and have kept her original every since. I'm enjoying checking out your blog :)

  3. I LOVE this casserole and so does my family! Thank You for sharing!!!

  4. Cream of celery soup - does it just go with the sour cream/cream of chicken mixture? I looked at other recipes on the web and none of them contained cream of celery soup, so wasn't sure about yours.

    1. Yes. Sorry about that omission. I updated the recipe to fix it.
