Wes Welker – The Denver Broncos wide receiver looks like a sexy pirate, and to boot, he’s got a heart o’ gold. He started a foundation for at-risk youth in his hometown of Oklahoma City. Don’t fight it, just swoon.
So, today is Super Bowl Sunday. It’s 4PM Pacific time. Notice that I am posting on my blog. We were supposed to have company, so I made Poppy Seed Chicken. Then they cancelled. More for us.
Since I love this dish so much, I’m sharing it with you.
8 x 15 inch pan
1 bag of frozen broccoli florets
24 ounces of cooked sliced/diced chicken breast (I get the 16 oz. packages of Trader Joe’s cooked, sliced chicken.
8 oz. sour cream
1 can, cream of chicken soup (low sodium and low fat is OK)
1 cube ob butter (NOT margarine)
1 roll of Ritz or HiHo crackers
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-Spread thawed broccoli in the bottom of the pan
-Spread chicken evenly over the broccoli
-Mix sour cream and cream of chicken soup together. Spread this mixture over the chicken, covering it all.
-Crush the crackers and mix in melted cube of butter. Spread the cracker mix over the top of the sour cream/soup mix.
-Sprinkle liberally with poppy seeds.
-Bake in oven for one hour, or until hot all the way through.
Everyone I’ve ever made this for has absolutely loved it. A few years ago I gave the recipe to a friend who gave it to his sister. When he went to visit her, she made it for him. He told her it didn’t taste like the poppy seed chicken I made. She said, “Well, I didn’t have cream of chicken soup so I used cream of mushroom. And I didn’t have Ritz crackers so I used saltines. And I didn’t have butter so I used margarine. And I didn’t have any poppy seeds.”
Well, duh. Then it’s not poppy seed chicken is it? You want to experiment, OK, do it on your own time. You want poppy seed chicken – follow the recipe.
Russell Wilson – Making the Seattle Seahawks a force to be reckoned with wasn’t enough for this quarterback. He also visits the Seattle Children’s Hospital weekly, runs a youth football camp, and visits injured soldiers.
Hope you enjoyed your Super Bowl Sunday.
