Want to see my sorority's secret Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole recipe? This weeknight dinner is perfect with rice!
Need a super easy comfort food meal? Let me tell you - ten years ago in the ADPi house at the University of Alabama, this Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole was famous.
Everybody at my sorority house in college looked forward to Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole day. This was the very first meal served to my pledge class on bid day, meaning I've been loving this one for over 15 years now (ouch). It's great served over rice (how I normally have it), but we've also had it over potato waffles (via Just a Taste) and it was phenomenal. Serve a green veggie on the side and you've got an incredibly easy, crowd-pleasing weeknight dinner!
I feel like every good southerner has some kind of variation of this recipe - this is the one that I use. A few years ago, one of my sorority sisters randomly posted it on Facebook after somebody was reminiscing over this dish - I screen shotted it right then and have been using that same recipe ever since. I decided it was high time to share this delicacy with you guys (and, if it's on my blog, I can't lose the recipe! 😂)
Here's my version (actually, the ADPi house at Alabama's version) of Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole...
