I did change a couple of things around a bit when making this recipe ~ I used 2 cups of shredded chicken breast that I had in the freezer, & I used cream of chicken soup instead of the mushroom stuff! Worked great for us & this casserole was tasty & satisfying! Many thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]
