My favorite thing to take to a new mommy and her family is ritz poppy seed chicken. Easy, creamy, and delicious. I always make a double batch so that I have a meal for my family too! This goes great with a green or fruit salad, some bread, and my favorite dessert...some of mommy's favorite ice cream to take the edge off of those crazy hormone fueled first few days. So make this yummy dish for a new mommy you know!
Ritz Poppy Seed Chicken
pre heat oven to 350
2 cups cooked and diced/shredded chicken
1 and 1/2 cups of sour cream ( use low fat)
1 can cream of chicken soup ( use low fat)
mix in a bowl and set aside
crush 2 sleeves of ritz crackers in a gallon size ziploc
add 1 tablespoon of poppyseeds
add 1/2 cup melted butter
mix approx 1/2 the cracker mixture into the chicken mixture. Place chicken mixture in a greased pan, then top with remaining cracker mixture and bake for about 30 minutes.
This may not be fancy, but it is popular with young kidlets and especially with nursing mothers. And my hubby loves it too.
