MY REVIEW

"I have never rated a recipe here before, but after making this one, I just had to. I was totally disappointed in the finished dish. I followed the directions exactly, but the finished dish was bland and watery."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 8, 2013

"I don't know what I did wrong, but mine turned out soupy, which made the potatoes soggy. It was more like mashed potato casserole, but the flavor was good."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 11, 2013

"This was delicious. I baked it for the full 60 minutes and then let it sit for about 10 minutes before serving. I saw that others said it was too soupy, but ours was pretty much perfect, a little extra "gravy" that we drizzled over the top after scooping out our portions. That extra "gravy" was totally absorbed when we went to have the leftovers."

MY REVIEW

"I took the advice of other reviewers before making this. I cooked my hash browns first. Instead of sprinkling them with salt, I used garlic salt for more flavor. I also used fresh mushroom and added more onion and half of a red pepper. It turned out fine and we liked it, but we decided that we would try other new recipes before making this again."

"As a Pastry Chef, I know a thing or two about measurements and how to follow a recipe. I followed this one verbatim. Although the taste was decent, it was a soupy mess. Never, ever again."

"Let me start by saying that I got this recipe from my mom because she LOVED it and wanted to pass it on to me. She makes it once a month and thinks it is the best thing since sliced bread. HOWEVER when I made it, I thought it was disgusting! It had a weird bitter / bland taste (if that makes any sense), and an awkward consistency. The flavors did not mesh together well, and I would definitely not make it again! To me it was a waste of ingredients, but like I said, my mom loved it. So I'm averaging our ratings and giving it a 3."

"Heres the changes i made, i cook the hashbrowns in the oven first to crisp up i add 1 small can of cream of mushroom soup and 1 can of cream of celery, the chicken, sour cream, a little milk and about 2 cups of medium sharp cheddar cheese salt and pepper and onion if too dry i add another can of cream of mushroom soup mix together spread in cooked hashbrowns and top with more cheese bake another 30-40 minutes a little tweaking and it was very good, the OP had the right idea but needed improves IMHO"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 31, 2012

"One of the reasons I made this recipe was because it was a contest winner. A contest winner? Really??? My family thought this casserole was bland and nothing special. I baked it according to the directions, but the hash browns were way overcooked, practically like mashed potatoes. Maybe it would be better if the hash browns weren't thawed? This recipe would be salvagable if it had more seasonings and maybe some cheese to perk it up. Also, experiment with either less cooking time or unthawed hash browns."

MY REVIEW

"I made this recipe exactly by the recipe since it was my first time making it and it was very tasty but needs more chicken in order to be a main dish. I will serve the leftovers as a side dish next time."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 17, 2012

"This seemed like a good idea, but we found it to be very bland! The red pepper added the only flavor. If I try it again, I'll have to think of something flavorful to add. Maybe dry mustard, swiss cheese, diced ham... it needs something???"

"I did not care for the mushiness of the potatoes on the bottom. I will make again, and will definitely add cheddar cheese - did that for the leftovers and they were much tastier! The almonds and red peppers on top were my favorite part."

"I haven't tried this yet, however, it sounds wonderful. I make something similar that includes frozen baby peas and sliced water chestnuts. Crushed potato chips on the top. I created this recipe many years ago and I call it "Chip Chicken". My children's all time favorite."

MY REVIEW

"All though I LOVE to read the comments on dishes for a personal flair someone might have on a recipe or a slight change in ingrediant, I'm so sick of these negative posters ripping a recipe apart just because it does not fit into their way of thinking. This recipe is lovely-perfect for a pot luck or when you need something easy for a surprise house full of dinner guests or your kids friends! As the previous poster noted-this is not inteneded to eat everyday! This is not a goumet recipe and I doubt that it was ever intended to be. Everything needs to be eaten in moderation. As I would tell my child..."if you have nothing nice to say-don't say nothing at all"."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 12, 2012

"I have to agree with "1" point of the previous review, this recipe does have more salt than we need, however, I am not aware of many who would prepare this on a daily basis. My family finds this a treat and we often serve it for gatherings. As for not calling it cooking there are those of us who do need short cuts, and I do not believe there is additional salt in the bagged hashbrowns. I find the absurdity in the previous review to be the attitude of the previous writer. Fix this recipe and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. If using bagged hashbrowns or other convenient shortcuts and you can afford them, go for it and spend the saved time with your family and friends. Have fun!!!!!"

"Dumping a bag of frozen potatoes hardly qualifies as creating a recipe . The salt content of this is atrocious, not to mention the added preservatives. What's so hard about using fresh potatoes? If it's really that great a one cup serving wouldn't be enough and that has almost 1/2 of your daily allotment of salt."

MY REVIEW

"The amount of salt in this recipe is absurd. If it's really that good a person will easily have more than 1 cup--which contains almost a day's allotment of salt. What's so hard about dicing fresh potatoes ? That's called "cooking". And no preservatives and no salt. Dumping a bag of frozen potatoes is not creating a recipe... I'm sorry."

"Dish was delicious. I subsituted the paprika and almonds with some shredded cheese and all of my family gobbled it up. Now it has become a regular dish for us. I have experimented with other hashbrowns: cheesy hashrbrowns, southern style, diced, regular; and they all work out great."
