    Chris from Kansas, I used this recipe for a starting point, so I won't leave stars. I wanted to add brown rice and broccoli, so I used the full can of soup, plus a bit more than 1/2 cup of chicken broth so the rice would fully cook and not get gummy. Also, instead of the croutons, I scattered a handful of french-fried onions on top. All together, this was a delicious meal! The white wine and Swiss cheese really added a great flavor.

    This was good; felt like it was missing a little something, but not sure what. I did use some sliced cheese that I cut up and used bread crumbs since I didn't have any croutons (and no time to make them). So perhaps that made a difference. I think I would make again, maybe with the croutons this time. (Also should mention that I skipped the freezing part...just made and baked. Thanks for posting!

    Very good. Whole family enjoyed it. Made one for dinner tonight and another for the freezer. Had a brain fart and forgot to add the sour cream, but it was still delicious, so I'd say it's optional, spare yourself the calories if you want to. Used Ceasar salad croutons, which were a really good compliment to the rest of the seasoings. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Chris!
