*The rice in this dish makes it a little heartier but I have made it plenty of times without the rice and it's still just as delicious!
**I have made this dish with low fat sour cream and it's still great. However, I would NOT make it with low fat or "heart healthy" cream of chicken soup. It makes the casserole watery and have less flavor.
***Also I know this is called "poppy seed" chicken but I've also make it quite often without the poppy seeds because I didn't have any on hand. It's still amazing! (And you won't have little black things stuck in your teeth hee hee)
(You can serve it with any kind of veggies you like too! The sauce is delicious on veggies!)
