I found this recipe while searching at my husband's request. His step-mom used to make this for him. He insisted that you just dump a can of cream of chicken soup on top... I knew that couldn't be right. I used shreded cheddar and montery jack. I was a little low on cheese. So, I threw a slice of processed cheese in to make it a little cheeser. I also added about a tsp of salt. We like things salty in this household. I also used the garlic and butter crescent rolls... yummy. I used reduced fat cream of chicken soup. The chicken was leftover from tacos last night. It was shreded and had cooked all day on low in the crock pot the day before with cream of chicken soup and a can of rotel. I'm sure that this recipe would be delicious with plain chicken. This was just what I had to use up. I tend to like chicken fillings shredded. Also, I had to cover the dish with foil towards the end of the baking time to prevent the top from burning. Thanks for the great recipe. I have a happy husband now!
