    LonghornMama's Note:

    I found this in Southern Living several years ago and make it often, especially when bringing a meal to someone. It freezes well which is good since the recipe is much more than my family can eat. I usually make it either in 2 2qt baking dishes or 3 9x9 pans for freezing and add a little extra cheese on top. Light sour cream, lowfat milk and Healthy Request soup work well for a lower fat version.

      So YUMMY!! I divided the mixture into one casserole for tonight and one to freeze for later. I added mushrooms and a dash of hot sauce. Thankfully, I have a large tupperware "Thats-a-bowl" to mix this up in. I had a hard time making myself stop eating! Love it!

      This was really yummy! I made two casseroles....a 9x13 (to freeze and give to family members after a death in the family) and an 8x8 (to have for ourselves). The only thing is I don't even have a bowl big enough to mix all of the ingredients...had to use my big stock pot. My family liked this and I will definitely be making it again and again. I like large recipes that freeze well and this is that kind of recipe!

      I made this for my 6 picky kids & my inlaws... It was a hit! I only used 1 onion and added extra cheese- I also shredded the chicken... next time I will add mushroom, some additional wild rice and perhaps 3/4 cup of white wine-- Very tasty-- thanks for sharing!
