Directions

  1. Place the chicken breasts into a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium, cover, and simmer until the chicken breasts are no longer pink in the center, about 20 minutes. Drain the water, then shred the chicken.
  2. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Combine the butter, crackers, and poppy seeds in a bowl; set aside.
  3. Blend the sour cream and cream of chicken soup in a bowl; pour half of the soup mixture into a 9x9-inch baking dish. Add the shredded chicken, then pour the remaining half of the soup mixture on top. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese, then top with the cracker mixture.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese has melted and the sauce is bubbly, 25 to 30 minutes.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This is the chicken casserole I grew up with, except we leave out the cheese. One tip from years of making it for those of you who work outside the home full time: put the boneless skinless chicken breasts (frozen works great) in the crockpot with a cup of water on low all day... then you don't have to boil the chicken when you get home and it is so tender and easy to shred with two forks. Also, I used just 2 Tablespoons butter; it works fine for a sleeve of buttery crackers.

A favorite recipe of ours..soooooo good! I cut the chicken in bite size pieces and saute in a little butter and olive oil instead of boiling method. Yummy!

I have been making this dish for years, it is my husband's favorite. The only thing I do different is that I use less chicken and add rice.
