Poppy Seed ChickenFrom HOLLY HILL HOMESTEAD B&B / PARKERS CROSSING CABIN
|Several years ago my son's wife shared this delicious casserole recipe with me. It is one of my Ryan's favorites and quickly became a favorite here at Holly Hill too. I prepare it often for large groups and have served it many times for 30 people. It's one that doubles or triples well and customers often ask for the recipe. Hope that you enjoy it also. (Serves 8-10)
2 c. lite sour cream
Mix together in or all of the ingredients, add chicken last so it doesn’t break up too much. (I often use a whole chicken that I have cooked overnight in the crock pot. Cool in the morning and remove bones, cube meat and measure the 4 cups.) Pour mixture into a 9 X 13 casserole that has been sprayed with a non-stick spray.
*These ingredients are optional, I add them to jazz it up a little, you can substitute a small jar of pimento for the red pepper.
To double this recipe I use 1 whole chicken and 4 breasts and double the other ingredients. If the mixture seems a little dry I moisten it with some buttermilk, which blends with the sour cream flavor well.
