Very rich and creamy! I shredded teh chicken and added half the cheddar cheese to the filling mix. I stuffed 11 shells with the filling. My husband said it reminded him a little of enchiladas so maybe I'll use a little taco seasoning next time for a different flair. Thanks for sharing!

So delicious!! Wow, no way could I have predicted my family's reaction to this dish. They loved it. Stuffing the shells took some finesse but it really wasn't that hard. This is a great comfort food casserole with a creamy sauce that I will use again. Thank-you.

This was an outstanding dish, but don't underestimate the time it takes to make! (if you boil and debone the chicken) I made a few alterations: used low fat cream of chicken soup and sour cream. Also, added a package of chopped spinach (thawed and squeezed dry) and about 1/3 c of shredded parmesan cheese to the stuffing. Thanks for a great recipe and one I will make on a regular basis. Since there are just 2 of us, I ended up stuffing about 10 manicottis and freezing 5 for another day.
