Notes, tips, and variationsEdit

  • You can easily scale this recipe depending on the number of servings you want (e.g. 3 chicken breasts, ¾ cup mayo and sour cream, etc); use a bigger or smaller pan as necessary to make the chicken layer 1-2 inches (2.5-5 cm) thick.
  • You can assemble it ahead of time and refrigerate it, baking it for 35-40 minutes.
  • If you freeze it before baking, do not add the crackers, poppyseeds, or butter until you are ready to bake it.
