While the chicken is cooking I crush a sleeve of Ritz crackers and melt a 1/2 stick of butter. Mix together and add about 2 TBS of poppy seeds, then set aside. (just make sure your not up for a drug screen at work because you will test positive for opiates)
After my chicken has cooled I take the meat off the bone and cut it into small bite size pieces. Mix the cream of chicken, sour cream and chicken together in a casserole dish. You can add pimentos and sauteed mushrooms if you like, but my short people lack the ability to eat food with 'red thingies' and mushrooms.
I then cover with the cracker mixture, Bake at 375 for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Sometimes I layer the fully cooked rice on the bottom, other times I just serve the Poppy Seed Chicken over the rice. It's really up to you.
