Kathy's Country Chicken Casserole

"My son asked last night, "Mom how do you know how to make this?" I said, "Hmm...don't know. Been cooking it forever." He said, "Well when I move out, please write it down for me. This stuff is great!" (Then I start worrying about him "moving out" someday, but my husband assures me the son will never leave as long as I keep cooking like this for him.)"

    My dh loved this dish. He couldn't get enough of it. It surprised me how much he enjoyed this. I had cooked this the same night I made a chicken pot pie that i've been making for years. He wouldn't touch the chicken pot pie. I guess this will be our new favorite chicken casserole. Thanks so much for posting. ChefRaylene

    My husband LOVED this dish! He went back for seconds and thirds! I added Italian Seasoning and Poultry Seasoning to the mix and subbed crushed croutons for the onions as we really don't like them. I will definitely be making this again and again for hubby! Thanks for the fab recipe!

    This was easy and turned out well, except that I should have added more salt (I guess I needed an exact amount). It makes a lot, and you have to be careful when stirring it in the pan.

    This was a great recipe! Everyone in the family liked it very much. However, our tastes run to the more spicy dishes and although I added chopped onion, a dash of Tabasco and red pepper it still was a tad on the blandish side. I also added sharp cheese instead of the mild. I will definitely use this again with some tweaking for our tastes. Thanks for posting it!
