“This is a great and easy chicken dish. It is a way to use up leftover chicken or turkey and it can be prepared beforehand. The cracker mixtures is what makes this dish so good. I have taken it to people for dinner several times and had lots of requests for the recipe.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups cooked chicken, diced or shredded (turkey can be substituted for chicken)
  • 1 (4 ounce) packet Ritz crackers
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seed
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 12 cups sour cream
  • 12 cup butter or 12 cup margarine, melted


  1. Combine chicken with soup and sour cream in a bowl.
  2. In another bowl add crushed crackers and poppy seeds to melted butter.
  3. Mix well.
  4. Mix half of cracker mixture in chicken.
  5. Put in casserole dish.
  6. Spread remaining cracker mix on top.
  7. Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
  8. Cover for first 15 minutes and then uncover for last 15 minutes.
  9. (I like to double the crackers and butter).
