Yummy comfort food. I added sauted onion and celery to the chicken mixture.

We make this and my girls LOVE it. It is one of our favorite dishes. I use cream of chicken- not mushroom we prefer that one. It seem to be richer w/ the cream of chicken, to us anyway. Very Yummy !!

I love this recipe! I usually will make it with chicken tenders and leave them whole. This is a very satisfying dish, and I think it is pure comfort food! :) Thanks for posting!
