This recipe is a really quick dish. It’s Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole and you just serve it over rice. We usually use brown rice, but you could use white if you prefer. It’s easy to put together and perfect if you need to drop a little something off at someone’s house that’s just had a baby, is sick or just in need of a meal. My favorite part is that buttery cracker topping. YUM!

It’s a busy week over at our house. We have so much going on and I am teaching coupon classes up in Salt Lake. I thought this would be a good week for quick meals. They don’t always look the best and they aren’t anything amazing, but they are quick and yummy for those nights you don’t have time or just don’t have things pulled together.

So, here is to our first crazy busy day and not spending time in the kitchen when I need to be doing other things!


Can Poppy Seeds Make A Drug Test Positive?

Poppy Seeds can contain high enough levels of the opioid to trigger a positive result on some types of drug urine tests.

Even though most of the opium is removed from the poppy seeds during processing, in some cases, the seeds sold for use in foods still have a significant amount of opium – and thus morphine – on them.

There is not enough to make a person “high”, but could trigger a positive test result.

For this reason most drug tests have been modified so that a positive result will not happen.


Do Poppy Seeds Have Any Nutritional Value?

Poppy seeds are quite nutritional.

Poppy seeds are loaded with copper, iron, and calcium.


What Is A Good Substitute For Sour Cream?

Plain Greek yogurt is a good substitute for sour cream.

  1. This is a favorite at my house. Total comfort food. I don’t use cream of’s anymore though… I just make a roux and add chicken broth and poultry seasoning until desired thicknesses. Yummy without stuff you don’t need and still quick!

  2. That's funny, I was just thinking of how I haven't made this in awhile. It is so good.

  3. Annika, I only have creamy potato soups, but not cream of chicken etc. I'll have to start looking though

  4. lol. yes, I should spell “throw” and not “through.” I'm tired. We have a great cream of potato soup recipe, Carrian and I will plan to make it & post it sometime soon.

  5. Looks yummy! Thanks for posting. Do you ever make cream soup from scratch? I have a recipe but I'm not too thrilled with it.

  6. good tip and you should spell throw like I just did. Haha it's ok if you can't spell! and I wouldn't have told you, but you're my sister so I get to.

  7. Mmmm, classic. I have one tip to share. Season your chicken really well when you cook it. It will make a big difference in the end. I like to through some chicken in the crock pot in the morning & dump some powdered Italian dressing on top. It keeps things moving fast b/c you don't have to attend to it, but it's ready when you are.

  8. MMmm buttery cracker topping. This chicken looks amazing!
