Reviews for California Chicken Casserole
"Very easy to make and my family loved it. I substituted cream of chicken for the cream of mushroom, and extra sharp cheddar for the swiss as that is what I had on hand, and it came out great. I served over rotini instead of rice, but think I will try the rice next time. Will definitely make again!"
"This tasted good and was very simple to make. I did not serve with rice- it wasn't really all that saucy and is not needed. I also thought I had cream of mushroom soup in the pantry and all I had was cream of celery so I used that as a replacement. It tasted just fine to me, despite the replacement soup."
"My family loved this recipe. I will most assuredly make this again and again!"
"It's very easy & my husband really liked it. Asked me to make a double batch next time so he can take some to work. The swiss cheese gave it a really good ''different taste'' My dogs even liked the left overs. NO left overs for them"
"My family also loved this tonight. I didn't serve with rice as we do low card meals since my son is diabetic. This was great!! I also added green onions for more flavour."
"I added some sauteed baby bellas and onions to it was great."
"This casserole was very good. Very simple to make. This is a keeper. I boil chicken breast in water for 20 minutes. Dice the ckicken when cooled and vaccum seal and in the freezer they go for quick casseroles like this one."
