Most of you probably have a go-to recipe for Poppy Seed Chicken or you love your mom’s version! Poppy Seed Chicken was a favorite of the dishes my mom made while we were growing up, and it is still a yummy comfort food! I have tweaked her recipe a bit over the years and love this version with an addition of the unexpected Cream of Celery Soup. Enjoy!
