MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 19, 2014

I thought the sauce was too thick. It was more like a dip than a sauce. I might prefer using half the amount of sour cream and add 1/4 c. broth to make it "saucier" Also I think it would be better with sautéed celery and/or onion. And I would use fewer crackers and only put them on the top. Apparently Ritz are classic to this recipe, but I think breadcrumbs on top would work fine, if not better.

We're not big poppy seed fans so I left those out. This is so, so good! My husband said if I would let him he would eat the whole dish!

Great dish! Very easy too! Mine turned out soupy, so I cooked some noodles, enough for six people, to serve the chicken mixture over. It was excellent! I will definitely make it again!

I will definitely make this dish again! Just had it for dinner tonight, made it with FF sour cream, and served it over steamed broccoli. It was delicious!
