"The ultimate comfort food! This is so easy to make and is delicious. I didn't have any cheese soup on hand so I made some by using about 1 cup of milk with about 1/2 cup of velveeta. I microwaved that for about 30 seconds, stirred it and added that in place of the canned soup. It came out great - thanks for posting!"
"My husband and I really enjoyed this. All the chopping was a little time consuming but worth it. I think next time I might add a little more broth or soup to give it a little more sauce. I would make this again in a heartbeat and I still have some left over, yummmm."
"Wow. Just made this! it was very simple and soooooo delicious. My husband absolutely loved it. I did add some garlic. Very Yummy!"
"Very nice! Easy to prepare, doesn't take long at all! If I were to make this again, I would definitely decrease the onion I use. I think I just got a really strong onion and it gave me a bit of indigestion. Also, next time I will remember to make this is a wider dish. I used a deeper but smaller casserole and it was still cold in the middle when it came out. Thank goodness for microwaves! It reheated very very well the next day too! Thanks ChefV!"
"This was the perfect dinner for us last night. It was very easy to prepare in my exhausted state from working in the yard all day and big enough to feed all the hungry men that were hauling our trees away. I had left over sauteed onion, red & yellow & green bell peppers from the night before so I added that mixture to the seasoned chicken I sauteed for the casserole. This would be a great recipe to use a deli chicken. Everyone loved it!!! Thanks V!!!!"
"I like this recipe a lot but agree with a previous reviewer regarding the amount of onion and butter. Also my onions didn't quite cook enough so were still crunchy. My kids (3 and 4) weren't crazy about that so next time I'll probably use less and maybe cook them a little before mixing them in"
"Pretty good, but nothing special, it needs more flavor as it was a bit bland. I added garlic and made sure to season it properly. I threw in some tomatoes because we love tomatoes. The butter was a bit much, so next time I'll cut it on half. Also, I poached 3 lbs of chicken breast, but it was way too much, so I put about half in the dish. I'll probably use the recipe as a base and add more veggies next time. For a quick meal, it's a good solution."
"This really fit the bill for a grey, rainy day when feeling lazy and need something easy. I used a bag of frozen mixed veggies, and tossed some french fried onions on top of the cheese to entice the kids."
"V - Awesome, wonderful, delightful, simple to prepare, inexpensive, tasty, nutritious, delicious, terrific, "we want more", etc., etc.... I've run out of adjectives right now. I made for the Bev Tag '08 and am so glad that I did! Will be making this often. I may take NC's idea and add some red peppers just for more color but just as is is perfect! (one more adjective). Thanks V !!"
"We really enjoyed this. I keep frozen cooked chicken in the freezer so it made for a quick weeknight dinner. My kids even enjoyed it and cleaned their plates. Followed the recipe exactly."
"Ive already made this recipe twice at my house,its easy to make and it tastes sooo good, its even better the next day.Thanks for sharing."
"Thanks for a great dinner V, this was wonderful comfort food. My picky dh cleaned his plate and claimed the leftovers for his lunch. I roasted two large chicken breasts the night before so the casserole was quick and easy to put together. Thanks for sharing this great tasting meal."
"This dish was tasty and filling. Perfect for a quick work night meal - kid pleasing and easy!! I chose to grill 6 boneless, skinless breasts with evoo, garlic, cajun seasoning and Montreal steak seasoning then slicing this into the mix. Turned out great! DH already set aside his portion for "lunch" to take to work tomorrow. ;) Thanks for a great family pleasing casserole, V!!"
"I really love this casserole! It is so cheesy and I ate all the vegetables! You are a good cook Chef V!"
