Poppyseed Chicken

This recipe brings back so many memories of living in my sorority. We had poppyseed chicken for dinner all the time! It was one of the dishes I actually really enjoyed - and looked forward to when I saw it on the menu. It's a very simple dish, but just seems homey.

I changed a couple of things with this recipe, though I bet it's perfect as it stands. I added some chia seeds - full of Omega 3 and Fiber and completely tasteless - because I thought the texture wouldn't stand out with the poppyseeds. I was right! It did nothing to the flavor, and was an easy way to up the nutrition in a dish.

Recipe is courtesy of my friend Jourdan's mother-in-law, but you can find it here. Thanks for sharing, Jourdan (and Corey's mom!). :)

  1. I made this for my family tonight and they loved it...Including my often picky son! One question...do you include how many servings your recipes make? Thanks for a new recipe!

    1. I'm so glad they liked it, especially the picky eater! I guess I don't normally include servings because it's just the two of us, but I will definitely start doing that. Thanks for asking and for reading! :)
