  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat, and cook chicken, turning once, until no longer pink in center and juices run clear. Set aside to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees Celsius).
  3. Cut chicken into bite size pieces, and place in a bowl with the cream of chicken and mushroom soups, and the sour cream. Stir until well blended, then transfer mixture to a 9x13 inch shallow baking dish. In a separate bowl, combine the crushed crackers with the poppy seeds. Melt butter in the microwave for 30 seconds, or in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir butter into the cracker mixture, and spread evenly over the chicken.
  4. Bake chicken in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until heated through and lightly browned on top.

This is a favorite in our family. I have made it numerous times, always with superb results. The crunchy poppy seeds and the cracker topping make this a real winner. So easy and so good!

The calories are from the soup... but you can get 98% Fat Free cream of whatever soups, and that really helps to cut down the cals... :) Very yummy!

This is really good and easy. My husband & daughter request it quite often. I follow the recipe exactly. I do season the chicken with salt & pepper.

Although this recipe was alright, it really wasn't very good... it could have used HALF the crackers on top. They overpowered everything else, and it ended up being really dry tasting. I use to ...
