I’ve come to the conclusion you guys all like recipe with interesting titles. Maybe I should rename this recipe just to get your attention…
Do you want to know how I came to this conclusion? It’s because the famous “Crack Dip” that I just posted a few weeks ago has the most page views of any recipe on this blog. So yes it is a pretty amazing recipe but I’ve made other pretty amazing recipes that haven’t got nearly that much attention. I think I’m onto something hear. So I’m going to rename this recipe “Heroin Chicken”…just kidding! I don’t think that would go over quite as well somehow. Of course maybe I could name it Opium Poppy Seed Chicken because word has it on the street that if you take a drug test after eating Poppy Seeds it will come up positive for Opiates.
I’m a Minnesotan and I always love a good hot dish so this caught my eye right away. It was pretty easy to whip up after work and it made plenty so we had leftovers. I love leftovers. In fact I’m eating this for lunch right now.
So go make this dish and give it some love even though it doesn’t have quite as great of a name as the “Crack Dip” did!
