    This is the best chicken casserole I ever made. My mother-in-law gave me the recipe. It's easy to make and allows for plenty of leftovers.

      Followed the recipe and it tasted like chicken salad. I did not like it because I felt sick after eating it. It was extremely unhealthy and wasn't tasty. Sorry. I will not make this again.

      I used cooked cubed chicken and orzo, a durum wheat semolina pasta, looks like big grains of rice (Davinci brand)16 ozs. cooked 8 minutes only.Some of my family will not eat rice and of course I love it! Made ahead and refrigerated, then cooked 10 more minutes covered. Delicious! I also used canned mushroom stems and pieces, drained.It is very easy to prepare but looks complicated. So go for it, a pleaser!
