Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole with Rice

Poppy Seed Chicken with Rice (Adapted from The Ashcroft Family Table Blog)


  • 2-3 cooked and shredded chicken breasts, about 3 cups
  • 2  10.5 ounces canned cream of chicken soup
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 2 cups cooked white rice

Ingredients for Topping

  • 3.4 ounces crushed Ritz crackers, 1 sleeve
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon dried parsley (optional)
  • 1/4 cup greated Parmesan cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly coat a 9 X 13 baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, mix shredded chicken, cream of chicken soup, sour creaam, and COOKED rice.
  3. Pour the chicken mixture into the greased pan and spread into an even layer. Top with cracker crumb mixture listed below.
  4. Mix crushed Ritz cracker, melted butter, poppy seeds, dried parsley, and grated Parmesan cheese in a small bowl.  Spread on top of chicken mixture.
  5. Bake uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until topping is crispy and the mixture is bubbling.

This recipe serves 8.  If I need to increase size, I increase the total melted butter to just less than 1/2 cup, add another cream of chicken soup or a can of mushroom soup, and more sour cream as needed.  The chicken and rice mixture may be made on the day before and refrigerated but you may need to add 10 -15 more minutes to baking.  This recipe may be made without rice as well by possibly adjusting to only 1 can of cream of chicken soup.  This recipe is great if you have leftover rice and/or chicken.  If you are in a hurry, buy a rotisserie chicken and shred or pull it.

No Peek Chicken

1 box Uncle Ben’s Long Grain Wild Rice (original recipe)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can water
(You can add another can of water for moister rice.)
Chicken breasts or tenders

How to make it :
In a greased 9 x 13 pan, mix the box of rice, cans of celery and mushroom soup and
one can of water. I always add the extra can of water because I like moist rice.
Arrange the raw chicken on top of the rice mixture….
Cover and seal with foil……
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours or until done and “Don’t Peek!”
Your house will smell amazing!
