Reviews for Artichoke and Chicken Casserole
"I don't normally give recipes a full 5 stars but this one deserves it! This casserole defines comfort food. I was impressed with the ease of preparing the casserole. I didn't have bow tie pasta so I used another and I think I would have been even happier with bow tie as recommended for the recipe. It was very creamy but not too rich. I did use a little less parm cheese due to my own preference."
"My family loves this recipe! Instead of croutons, I use French fried onion - delish!"
"Lighten up a bit with low fat soup, 1/2 c low fat mayo and 1/2 c of light sour cream."
"Love this! However, after reading the nutritional info I may substitute low fat low sodium soup, whole wheat pasta and greek yogurt to help lighten it up."
"One of my family's favorite recipes. Works great as a freezer meal too."
"I made a few alterations; added a can of mushroom stems and pieces, cooked boneless chicken breast with a Creole seasoning rub, and used shredded Asiago instead of Parmesan. The result was a very good casserole."
"This was very good and everyone loved it. I added a can of mushroom slices and chopped up a few water chestnuts for some crunch and added it to the recipe. When I make this again I'm going to add a small amount of lemon juice to it. I didn't use chicken breasts for the recipe, I roasted two chicken leg quarters and then used the meat from them. My husband hates artichokes (but will occasionally eat the hearts) and he loved this."
"I was disappointed by this recipe. It sounded so good, but was lacking in flavor and richness."
"This is a KEEPER!"
"So glad I tried this! We love spicy hot artichoke dip; this has a similar taste and texture. After reading the reviews I also substituted some sour cream for some of the mayo (I think 2/3 mayo to 1/3 sour cream works pretty well). This recipe is not low calorie, but it's easy to make, filling and flavorful."
"I have people request i make this and invite them to dinner...They hate artichokes but love when i make this...."
"Tatally the best recipe on here!!!!!!"
"I followed this recipe exactly except for substituting 1/2 cup of sour cream for half the mayo. My family thought this was very bland. Our dogs did love all the left-overs though :-)!"
"THIS WAS EXCELLENT... I ADDED SOME PEAS AND MUSHROOMS AND THE FAMILY ATE IT UP!!! DEFINITELY A REPEAT AT OUR HOUSE!"
"Was somewhat bland but added some lemon pepper which helped to boost the flavors. Probably won't make this one again."
"Our family rates the new recipes I make, this got the 2010 Recipe of the Year, everyone loves it!"
"this recipe became an instant hit! its easy, and taste so good."
"This recipe is amazing! In my family we LOVE artichoke dip, and this recipe makes it into a meal! It is delicious and is now one of our regular meals, and is requested when visiting relatives. Very easy to make and the kids even like it. I used whatever croutons I had in the cabinet."
"A little bland. Didn't impress my family"
"I added a little more pasta and when I made it for my sister she said she will use 2 cans of artichoke. Everyone loves this, definitely on our permanent rotation!"
"I cooked the chicken and then used the broth from the chicken plus enough water to cook the pasta for added flavor. Great recipe."
"My husband and I really liked this recipe, but thought it could use a little more zip and a little less fat. Next time I'll add a little mustard, either Dijon or Spicy Brown. I added sauteed diced red pepper and onion. To reduce the fat, sodium and carbs, I left off the croutons. They are always mushy when you reheat it anyway. I'm sure it would get great reviews at a potluck dinner!"
"This recipe was delicious! I did add 3 cups of bow tie pasta instead of 2 and 2 cloves of garlic(we love garlic) instead of 1. Wonderful casserole!"
"this was a big hit! I added a little more parm cheese and used garlic croutons"
"I added more garlic and some green onions."
"This is really good! Love the recipe."
"I added more garlic - awesome!"
"VERY good!! I did not read any of the reviews before I made it. I used 2 chicken breast, a bag of frozen artichokes and substituted the fried onions you would put in green bean casserole for the croutons. Delicious!! I like some of the other suggestions too, more pasta, less mayo."
"Fantastic and simple! I attempted to lighten up this recipe by using skim milk, 98% fat free cream of chicken soup, light miracle whip, etc... and it still tasted AMAZING! Great comfort food recipe!"
"I'm so excited! My boyfriend, who claims he does not like creamy pasta at all, liked this casserole enough to say, "I'd have it again!" That makes it a 10 star recipe for me! I love pasta and creamy stuff. To make things work, I used the new olive oil based mayonnaise that is on the market, 2% lactose-free milk, and the yummy penne pasta that is higher in fiber and protein (and tastes so delicious). I used Caesar salad croutons (just 30 calories per 6 croutons), and the "healthy" low fat/no msg/low salt cream of chicken soup. I used about 2/3 the mayo, and about 2 tbsp of the fat free plain yogurt. Wonderful!"
"I left out the onion, garlic and pepper, and substituted parmesan crutons, and it made a much better casserole!"
"this was good and easy. Total comfort food. My husband said " I really like this!""
"Very Good! After reading the other reviews, I increased the pasta a bit and substituted sour cream for half the mayo. Will definitely make again."
"This was really yummy. I didn't have croutons and just omitted them from the recipe. My guests were pleasantly surprised how much they enjoy this. Can't wait to make it again."
"This was very creamy and rich. I did use light mayo and 1% milk and increased the milk a bit. I also added a bag of baby spinach (slightly wilted). Next time (and there will be a next time) i will cut back mayo to 1/2 cup and add 1/2 cup plain yogurt to cut the fat."
"My family loved it, I did add more pasta as other suggested."
"Very hearty and delicious! I used whole wheat pasta (penne since that's what I had on hand) and marinated Artichokes since I had them. The only change I'd make is use a little less mayo and maybe skim or 1% milk next time. My fiance loved it too."
"Very tasty and easy to put together."
"we loved it !!"
"The casserole was very good the night I cooked it. However, I didn't care for it the next day as lunch leftovers. The flavor that it had the night before was not there."
"Made this for my husband and myself. Jim could not get enough of the casserole. I had to tell him to no more that I had plan on the leftovers for the next day. Coworkers are asking for the recipie because I told them how good this was. I will be making this again."
"I would use another cup of pasta too. It was very good, but very rich."
"This was a hit at my house. Very rich! "Comfort food" I made the following changes. I added 1 more cup of pasta, more cheese,1 more garlic clove,and a dash of ground cayenne for a kick.I also used bread crumbs instead of croutons seasoned with garlic and onion powder. Very easy to prepare as well."
"I tried this not expecting much but hoping for the best. It smelled great while it was baking, and it was actually very good. Used skim milk and a mix of parmesan and mozarella cheeses because that's what I had on hand."
