Poppy Seed Chicken + Laundry Tip

TGIF!  Going with my two big boys to see Frozen tonight and we can't wait!

I made last night Kate Gosselin's "Poppy Seed Chicken" which we'll heat up quick and serve with a salad before we head out.  It isn't my normal style of cooking, but it used up sour cream I had bought for dip last weekend and a sleeve of crackers I had leftover from entertaining.  It was really quick to put together.

 Poppy Seed Chicken
4 cooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into bite-sized pieces
1 (10-ounce) bag of frozen peas
16 ounces reduced-fat sour cream
2 (12-ounces) cans cream of chicken soup (I used boxed Pacific brand organic cream of mushroom)
1 sleeve ritz crackers finely crushed (I used leftover crackers we had on hand)
4 tablespoons poppy seeds (skipped since I must have tossed ours)
1/2 stick unsalted butter melted (I used 1/2 of this)
 Preheat oven to 350.
Place cooked chicken on bottom of 9 by 13 inch baking dish and sprinkle with peas evenly on top.
In a small bowl, combine sour cream and soup and pour over chicken and peas.
Sprinkle with cracker crumbs and poppy seeds. Pour butter over top.
Bake uncovered for 30 to 40 minutes until sauce is bubbly.

When I get home I can heat it up quick and serve with a salad before we head out for our big night out on the town.
Love this Get It Done Tip from All You Magazine, which helps speed up the laundry folding/putting away process.

Cut down on laundry piles and eliminate small, water-wasting loads. Give each family member two laundry baskets. Keep one in their bedroom for dirty clothes, and the other in the laundry room for clean. As clothes come out of the dryer, fold and sort into each person’s basket. Every other day, switch bins so that the dirty items make it into the wash and the clean ones are put away in a timely fashion.

Have a great weekend everyone!
