    Very much enjoyed. I had no celery, so subbed two medium carrots, thinly sliced, and I had to use cream of mushroom soup since I didn't realise I had no chicken soup, sorry about that. And I only had green peppers for the batter! I did add 1 tsp dried thyme, and 1 tsp dried marjoram, to the chicken mixture. Otherwise, this cooked perfectly and was very much enjoyed by the family on a cool rainy night! Served with mixed peas'n'corn, thanks for a lovely recipe, Shazzie!

    Made this recipe to share with neighbors but I did cut the bacon back to 2 slices & omitted the mushrooms! Another time I might include sliced fresh mushrooms sprinkled on top under the final layer of cheese so that the 'rooms only cook about 5 minutes!
