Ritz Cracker Chicken

Also called Sour Cream Chicken... Ritz Casserole...Poppy seed casserole...that yummy chicken stuff...whatever name comes to mind first!

A roommate in college shared this recipe with me, and it's become a family favorite. It's the perfect comfort food.

Ritz Cracker Chicken

1-2 lbs chicken, cooked and cubed or shredded.
(We prefer shredded. It spreads through the dish better that way.)
1 1/2 cup sour cream
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
9oz box of Ritz crackers, crushed (About 2 sleeves)
1 T poppy seeds
1 cube butter or margarine.
1 TB seasonings - I use garlic and Herb
Salt and Pepper

Melt Butter. Add crushed crackers and poppy seeds. Mix, and set aside.
Mix Sour Cream, Chicken, and Soup. Season with Herbs, Garlic, Salt and Pepper.
Press 1/2 of the cracker mixture into the bottom of a 9x13 dish.
Add 1/2 of the leftover crackers to the chicken mix.
Spread chicken mix over the crackers in the pan.
Sprinkle remaining crackers over the top.
Bake at 350 for 30 min.

Serve over rice.


  1. NOM! That looks good I will try it!

  2. Poppyseed chicken! One of my absolute favorites. True comfort food there!

  3. Your making me soooooo hungry!!! This recipe sounds so delicious.

  4. Oh. My. Gosh. That looks yumilicious!!!!! I'm planning on making chicken tomorrow night but I was clueless as to what I was gonna do with it. Now I know!! The only ingredient I don't have is poppy seeds but I think I can swing it without those!

  5. Oh my gosh, that sounds wonderful. I never would have thought about ritz in a meal. Now I know what to do with those poppy seeds that came with my spice rack!

  6. A friend made that for me years ago, after my youngest son was born. I LOVED it....I lost the recipe too, so I am glad to see it here! Thanks for sharing, this will be a great cold-weather comfort dish for us:-)
