Very simple and tasty. My very picky 8 yr old daughter, who usually hates casseroles, loves this one. She'll even cheer when I say I'm fixing it!

Excellent recipe. I made this today, used 4 very large chicken breasts. I did not have any mushrooms, but that did not seem to take from the recipe. I also used brown rice. Thanks for a great new chicken casserole. I will be making this again!

This was delicious. I really enjoyed the onion soup mix. I did saute some onions with the celery because I had one in the fridge and we love onions. I also added a little bit of cheese to the top after it was done cooking. While it was cooking I made sure to stir it a few times so the rice didn't stick and the chicken stayed moist. I used boneless skinless chicken breast and cut the pieces up. It only took about an hour because I didn't use the full amount of chicken. Thank you for the recipe.
