Loved it. I am a beginner cook, always looking for something that seems easy.
This recipe made me look like a very good cook. Like to read the reviews and see what other have done just a little different. Of course I also tweaked the recipe a little. Used no mushrooms, but used a small bag of mixed vegetables, and used a packet of Mexican Cornbread for the topping.
I was worried the cornbread mixture would not get done, but the cornbread mixture combined with the vegetables was perfection.
This is the dish to make with left over chicken. We loved it! I didn't have some of the spices on hand, so I used Italian seasoning and it turned out wonderful. Thank you for posting such a great and easy recipe.
Nothing beats comfort food. This was wonderful. I did increase the amount of mushrooms and used gluten free flours. The corn was cut fresh from the cob. The casserole was baked in an 8x8 inch square pan. We enjoyed this for dinner with a tossed salad. Made for Aussie Swap.
