Welcome to the fabulous and sometimes insane life
of a working mother who is trying hard not to
let her whole existence be determined by her
cute little munchkins, yet continues to be drawn
in by the adorable and sometimes annoying tiny people!

Chicken Fried Rice Casserole

My husband just declared this his new favorite meal!

2 lbs of cooked chicken, cut up (I actually use 3-4 cans of chicken.)
2 cans of Cream of Chicken soup
16oz. Sour Cream (I use fat free)
2 small boxes of Rice-A-Roni Fried Rice
2 sleeves of crushed Ritz crackers (I use Reduced Fat)
1 stick of butter (I use light)
Poppy Seeds

Preheat your oven to 350. 
Cook rice by following the directions on the box. Mix together chicken, soup, and sour cream. Spread rice on bottom of 13 x 9 baking dish. Spread chicken mixture on top of rice. Mix melted butter and crushed crackers together and sprinkle on top of casserole. Sprinkle a generous amount of poppy seeds on top of crackers. Bake for 25-30 minutes until bubbly. 

You could also title this recipe "A Glorified Poppy Seed Chicken".

Thanks everyone for your comments. As for the rudeness...well it is sad that people feel so badly about themselves that they have to put down a recipe.....really? Any who...I added the time and baking temperature. I originally blogged about this recipe just to share with my friends not to post over the whole Internet so I was in a rush...sorry. As for the fat content, there are always ways to make things low fat and...life is way too short!
