3 cups cooked chicken breasts, diced
1-1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 stick butter, melted (I used 5 tablespoons)
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup cornstarch, dissolved in 1/2 cup COLD water
1/3 cup chicken broth
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 cups milk
1-1/2 cups additional sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
In a medium non-stick skillet, melt the butter, add poppy seeds, and stir well; remove from heat. Add crushed Ritz Crackers to the melted butter/poppy seed mixture (you can crush Ritz crackers in a large Ziploc bag with a rolling pin, being careful not to crush too fine -- you don't want powder). Sprinkle crumbs over the top of the shredded cheese.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until hot & bubbly. Serve over rice or noodles, if desired.
