I made this on Mother's Day and had my 90 year old Mother-in-law over for dinner. She, myself and husband really enjoyed it. The only thing I did different was not to bread the chicken, I cooked tenders in a little butter and cubed them. I mixed panko bread crumbs with some melted butter and just put it on top of the casserole and baked it. It gave a nice crunchy topping, and we loved it. Needless to say she was thrilled to have some of the left overs to take home with her. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!
This recipe is FABULOUS and no matter who I prepare it for, it's a hit with everyone wanting a "doggie bag" to take some home. I made only one addition (unusual for me). To the milk/soup mix I added stone ground mustard - apx 1 generous tblsp per recipe. It's subtle but it adds a little something.
This tasted wonderful. Thank you!
Made this casserole last night for toddler son and his Nana. They loved it. I enjoyed leftovers today. I did not find too salty. Guess it depends on what type of ham you use? (I only had sliced deli ham-cut up) The only adjustments I made was to add some diced onion and garlic when fying the chicken bits...and added about a cup of raw fresh broccoli florets to casserole before baking. (Gotta be sneaky with a 2 year old) Served over bed of white rice. Delish and will DEFINITLEY make again.
Really, really good. I made it with my 9 yr. old grandson over FaceTime. He's in Minnesota I am in Texas. He called me to say he loved it as well.
I would give it a 5 if I had known to use top quality ham, top quality Swiss. These are what makes it taste. I used regular grocery store brands, and while it was good, it wasn't exciting.
Very delicious and easy. All the kids loved it! We put macaroni in the bottom before added the chicken. I was going to add bacon to the top but didn't have the time. This was a very good meal but I believe the bacon would be amazing with. Next time....
Delicious and easy to put together for a cold and snowy night. :-) I used low-sodium cream of chicken soup and it tasted great. Still plenty of salt from the cheese and ham that it wasn't missed.
I made this using Quorn tenders instead of the chicken breast following the directions exactly the same way. It turned out fantastic. I also used low fat or reduced fat versions of the soup, cheese and milk. I served this over rice with steamed broccoli on the side. Next time I won't bother with the rice. It was good on it's own.
Beware, people will always request this recipe! I usually add a good helping of shared onions and garlic.
