Poppy Seed Chicken

In college I was Involved in a wonderful sorority- Pi beta Phi, and fell in love with everything about it, including my girls! Every Monday before our chapter meeting we had a sit down dinner, and our favorite meal together was poppy seed chicken. We had the most amazing southern women cooks we could ask for. Tonight I enjoyed making a healthier version of what we loved, thinking of all of my girlfriends and memories I had with all of them.
