I am going to be honest. It had been a long time since I made or had Poppy Seed Chicken and the whole time I was prepping it I was thinking, ‘Gosh, this sure is a fatty recipe.’ Then as soon as I tasted it I was all ‘#WorthIt’. This is such yummy and delicious comfort food! So for all of you that are sticking with your New Year Goals, congratulations, and you may want to skip this recipe. (Also please send me some of your will power! K. Thanks!) For everyone else, put this on your menu STAT(!) We served this over rice alongside Soy-Balsamic Glazed Green Beans (So good!)
