When Alvin and I go to Gulf Shores we love to eat at LuLu's. LuLu's is owned by Lucy Buffet who is Jimmy Buffett's sister. I cooked Poppy Seed Chicken last night and tried Lucy's recipe for the first time. It was soooooo easy to fix and so yummy! I altered the recipe. Alvin does not like peppers of any kind so I just used green bell peppers to add flavor and we ate this as a salad not as an appetizer with chips or crackers. Thought you guys might like the recipe.
