"Very good-I used fat free cream of chicken soup to lower the fat-but I don't think it effected the flavor at all! i also added crispy rice noodles instead of the fried onions and that worked as well. Everyone enjoyed it!"

"Great for a pot-luck. I'd suggest using a sweet onion so it doesn't overpower the dish."
