I have made this several times and it is a big hit. One friend called them "little bites of heaven". I have made them ahead of time...just reserve half the sauce and pour on when ready to bake. Also I do add shredded cheese to the chicken mixture.
I have made this numerous times, exactly as written. My husband and I both really like it. I think next time I make it, I'll try other reviewer's suggestion of using chicken gravy instead of mayo. Maybe then my 7 year old will eat it too (he hates mayo).
Very yummy comfort food for a cold day. I added about a cup of shredded cheese to the stuffing mixture. My family thought this was delicoius. I only used one can of cream of chicken for the top, it was plenty of sauce to go around. Leftovers were perfect for lunch the next day.
