Easy to make, delicious meal with a built-in side dish. Steamed fresh green beans make a nice addition to this old family favorite.

Top Review by Chef Emilius

Was good had made it a couple times before. One of my moms dishes she cooks. Never had it with lemon added a sweet tangy flavor. I also used cream of chicken with cream of mushroom instead of just the cream of mushroom. Can't out fabulous definitely will make it again.
