Lemony Chicken

Everyone has that same old chicken casserole recipe.  You know the one with Cream of Chicken soup, rice, etc.  I can’t stomach it.  I just can’t.  So when I had this dish at a church meeting, I was in LOVE.  Such a great variation on the same old chicken casserole.


-4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, baked and diced

-1 can Cream of Chicken soup

-1 cup sour cream

-1.5 Tbsp lemon juice

-1 sleeve of Ritz crackers, made into crumbs

-1 Tbsp poppy seeds (can be left out)

-4 Tbsp melted butter


1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place diced chicken in bottom of an 8x8 baking dish.  Mix cream of chicken soup, sour cream and lemon juice together.  Spread over chicken.


2.  Combine Ritz cracker crumbs and poppy seeds in a bowl.  Sprinkle over top of casserole.  Drizzle melted butter over cracker crumbs.

3.  Bake at 350 until brown and bubble, about 30-45 minutes.



This recipe can be doubled and cooked in a 9x13 pan for company or to take to someone who just had a baby or is ill.  It’s very versatile dish!
