When I asked what she wanted, she mentioned that her family loves poppyseed chicken without the poppyseeds. Her family calls this "Crunchy Chicken". I had a recipe on my E-Mealz menu from a few weeks ago that I had never made, so I decided to test the recipe out on her family. That could have been a disaster, huh?!
Thankfully the recipe turned out really good!
Crunchy Chicken Casserole
Take 3-4 breasts of cooked and shredded chicken and spread in a greased 9 x 13 pan. Then combine 8oz of sour cream and 2 cans of cream of chicken. Let me just stop you here and let you know that this meal has no "redeeming" qualities. Nothing in it is healthy, low fat or low sodium. It is absolutely WONDERFUL, but not healthy AT ALL. Then pour the mixture over the chicken (I actually used a tad bit less than what this made- I just eyeballed it.) Crumble a sleeve of Ritz crackers over the casserole dish. Pour a stick of butter over the top. Bake on 350 degrees until hot and bubbly.
I split this casserole between her family and mine because I knew they were moving the next day and didn't need any leftovers, so you could easily get two meals out of this dish.
I paired the casserole with some white rice, green beans or broccoli and then a loaf of my husband's homemade bread.
Congrats to my sweet friend on the new home!
Praying many years of the warmest memories in your new home.
