Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole

This casserole is really easy to make.  The recipe uses a whole Rotisserie chicken and, to me, adds something special to the flavor.  But you can use 4-5 large chicken breasts instead.  That's what I used for years until I discovered Rotisserie chicken.  Just cook the chicken breasts then shred or chop them.

My husband and kids love this recipe.  There are never any leftovers.  Place the shredded or chopped chicken in a large mixing bowl.  In a separate bowl, mix the soups, sour cream and seasonings.  Then combine together and add to a casserole dish.

Crush the crackers and add melted butter.  Oh my, this is starting to come together nicely.

Bake in the oven.  Such a golden, buttery, crispy topping.  I wonder what side dish you'll come up with?  Rolls?  A salad, or green beans perhaps?
