This is a good, solid "pantry meal" that my family enjoyed. It is a bit high in carbs, and not my personal favorite, but I will probably keep the ingredients on hand for those emergency nights. One note, I remember the original recipe called for some kind of veggies instead of the Chicken & Rice soup, and I really hated the rice in it, so I might make that modification next time. I did use the onions, since I had some in the fridge. I also stirred half of the Chinese noodles into the mixture & sprinkled the other half on top (another distant memory).

This dish was pretty salty. I
have a similar recipe that calls for cream of mushroom soup instead of the chicken rice and canned mushrooms and french fried onion rings. Made for the Zaar Cookbook cooking tag game.

This was ok. I added some extra veggies and not as much evaporated milk and it still came out a little soupy. Next time I will probably add some more to it. It's a good starter recipe. Where to go from here is endless..

Tasty and easy!! I use a 5 oz can of milk and I let it stand overnight or at least 4 hours before baking 325 for 1 hour. I also add buttered bread crumbs or crushed potato chips on top.

Glad I found this one! I needed to use up a can of chow mein noodles and did a search for recipes. When I saw this one, I just happened to have the other ingredients on hand so it was a no-brainer...I had to try it. I listened to the other reviewers and added a can of mushrooms (stems & pieces), diced green chiles, and I also threw in a can of diced POTATOES. <--that was GENIUS! LOL I changed another thing, too. I only used 1/2 can of the milk as was suggested by OP-it came out 'thick' like a casserole and not soupy like one of the pictures. I also substituted a "soup at hand" container of CHICKEN & Mini Noodles instead of chicken & rice soup because I was being BRAVE. Oh, and added 12 minutes to the cook time. This tasted SO yummy! Will make again for sure! Thank you!

My original recipe did not contain any milk, but did contain 1 can water chestnuts, drained. It is a delicious dish. Thanks for listing it.

I added a small can of hot diced green chiles, a can of mushrooms, 3/4 cup frozen peas in addition to using the 1/2 tsp thyme. Good results.
