The Very Best Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole

Our kids grew up on this recipe, a version of it shared with us some 30+ years ago from my SIL, we always called it “Julie’s Chicken”. To this day it continues to be honorably referred to as “Julie’s Chicken”. Fast forward, we lost the original recipe over the years, over the moves (LOL) but a Google search produced this one “The Very Best Poppy Seed Chicken“, from The Recipe Critic, it’s a wonderful adaptation. What’s new is the cream cheese and parmesan cheeses that add to the creamy texture and exquisite medley of flavors. If you looking for a quick and delicious entree, this is one to try. We give it a 10! Bon appetitie. Enjoy…..

Low-Carb Chicken Divan

Another great find from “The Modern Proper”, Low-Carb Chicken Divan. It gets an “A” for ease! And an “A+” for flavor! We baked chicken breasts and followed her instuction for the brocolli. The sauce is very good – the combination of cream cheese, mayonnaise, heavy cream (what can be bad with heavy cream) plus the spices, salt, and curry powder and topped with sharp cheddar cheese – got to have some cheese on top! It all comes together with lots of flavors and is delicious. And love the freezer idea, a great make-ahead entree. Enjoy!
