Gramma Gail’s Recipe Box: Poppy Seed Chicken

Laura with Gramma Gail

This is a photo of my grandmother, Gail Shanks, and me taken 2 summers ago. She has gone on to her heavenly reward and is missed by all her family very much. Gramma enjoyed cooking and gave her granddaughters recipe boxes full of her favorite dishes. I treasure those hand-written recipe cards and hope to pass them on to my daughters someday. One of our family favorites is Poppy Seed Chicken. This is a great recipe for potlucks and works well when doubled.


  • 8 chicken breasts cooked and cutup in bite sized chunks
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 8 oz. of sour cream
  • 2 T of Poppy Seeds
  • 1 sleeve of Ritz crackers
  • 1 stick of melted butter

Mix first 3 ingredients together and place in 9×13 pan. Sprinkle 2 T of poppy seeds over chicken. Crush crackers and place on chicken and drizzle the melted butter over crackers. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.
