Very good. Easy to make using Rotisserie chicken from Sams. I added green peas and had steamed carrots with shallots on the side. Even DH who is not much of a casserole person enjoyed it. Thank you Kitten for posting it.

This was a pretty good recipe. It turned out nice, even though I overcooked my rice and didn't have the evap milk or 1/2 & 1/2. I used 2% milk instead. I also had to use shallots in place of garlic (allergy) and peas in place of green pepper (DH hates them). And at the last minute, I discovered I was out of pimento, so omitted that. I added 3 green onions.

My family enjoyed this Thurs nite dinner. It was super quick with leftover chicken. I crushed some leftover (and stale) croutons for the topping. Tastes like a cross between tetrazzinni and ala king. Thanks for posting!
