PoppySeed_ChickenCasserole2I have always been a casserole lover. They’re easy to throw together and make for a great family-friendly meal. This Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole I’m sharing today is a new favorite of ours. The homemade sauce is what makes the entire dish amazing! 😀

The sauce is creamy and has such great flavor. I think it’s the cream cheese that gives it it’s wow factor! We served ours over bow tie pasta noodles and had a side salad for a complete dinner. It was perfect. My kids loved it, too! PoppySeed_ChickenCasserole

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and cut in bite-size pieces

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F. Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish. Set aside.
