Made this as per the recipe directions & I had A GREAT TASTING CASSEROLE! I did use fresh breadcrumbs made from a dense & nutty winterwheat bread that I always have on hand! As enjoyable as this was, another time I might just use one 7-oz can of white albacore & one 14.5-oz can of chicken breast ~ We like that combo! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!
