“In the childhood memories of every good cook, there’s a large kitchen, a warm stove, a simmering pot and a mom.” Barbara Costikyan
I know that almost every church and civic group cookbook as well as most recipe blogs have this recipe, but it is still one of my favorite casseroles and it’s my blog so I’ll list it if I want to!
Boil the chicken (preferably in chicken broth) until done. After it cools, take a fork and shred it into small pieces or cut it into cubes. In a large mixing bowl, combine the first four ingredients and stir well. Pour mixture into a lightly greased Pyrex dish (about 11 x 11). Melt the butter in a measuring cup. Pour the crackers into a large ziplock plastic bag and crush them; add the 1/2 teaspoon of poppy seeds, then, pour in the melted butter and mix well. Place the crackers atop the chicken mixture and spread evenly. Bake for 45 minutes at 350-degrees.
