Poppyseed Chicken and Netflix

Hello!  This is going to be a fairly quick post.  Trav is bathing both of the kiddos while I have a few minutes of alone time :)  It's part of our nightly routine.  Eat dinner...they go to the bathroom to bathe and I sit down on the couch and kick up my feet for about thirty minutes.  Love this time of day!


Before I moved to Texas I had never heard of the recipe called Poppyseed Chicken.  Turns out it's a favorite around where we live.  It's a popular dish to bring to people who have just had a baby or to someone who has been sick.  AND there is a reason for that... it is absolutely DELICIOUS and easy to make!

I made it for dinner last week and served it over mashed potatoes.  You can also serve it over noodles or even eat it alone!


  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - diced
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 ounces buttery round crackers, crushed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted


  1. Preheat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    1. Place the diced chicken breasts on the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish sprayed with a nonstick cooking spray. In a bowl combine the soup and sour cream.  Pour or spoon mixture over the chicken. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top.

      1. Mix the poppy seeds and crushed crackers and sprinkle mixture over the chicken, salt and pepper. Drizzle the melted butter or margarine over the cracker/poppyseed layer and bake covered in the preheated oven for 30 to 45 minutes (take cover off for the last 5 minutes). Let stand a few minutes before servings.


Last night we signed up for Netflix.  We opted to just get the movies straight to our computer rather than have dvds delivered to our house.  Talk about fabulous!!!  There are TONS of great movies and tv series that we've been wanting to watch.  And it's only $8 a month :)  Sure beats wasting money on renting movies!  Some of the shows I'm excited to watch are Cake Boss and Say yes to the dress :)
Does anyone else use Netflix?  My parents have it and use their Wii to watch it through their tv.  So crazy to me!

Alrighty... both babes are out of the tub and dressed.  Time to read some books and pop them into bed!
Hope everyone had a great Monday :)


  1. So weird that you said that about Netflix because Brian and I were just talking about getting it. We have two other friends who have mentioned it. Awesome!

  2. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I plan on making it this week. Have a fabulous night!! Oh, 30 minutes to yourself...awesome!!!!!!

  3. This recipe sounds YUMMY! Never heard of it, but definitely want to try it. I just can't quite fathom the cracker taste, though ... but will have to give it a try.

    Do you watch your movies on your computer, or is there a way to hook the computer to a tv? I didn't know you could get netflix through the computer.


  4. I can't believe I have lived in Texas all my life and never heard of this delicious sounding recipe!! Guess I'm not a true Texan or something because I thought I knew all that could be done with cream of "something" soups;) I'm gonna try it!
    Netflix? Oh, yeah we got it. Streamed through our Wii becuase my FIL got a Wii just for that reason and we thought we would try it. We don't have satellite or cable so it is great for watching shows that are on there...commercial free even! We do get some things through the mail but mostly things I want to watch that no one else does:)

  5. BTW, where do you get poppy seeds? I don't think I have ever seen them:/

  6. we are huge fans of poppyseed chicken! more people need to know about its greatness, so thanks for sharing :)
