"My husband and I enjoyed this. I did salt and pepper the chicken pretty generously before browning, and mixed the rice and seasonings in the drippings (after pouring off some of the fat). This is old-fashioned comfort food."

"I make a similar casserole using cream of mushroom soup with about 1 1/2 cups of milk, no water. I also add uncooked broccoli and top with breadcrumbs. It serves as a good hearty meal and everyone loves it."

"I also add a cream of soup to this recipe, but use cream of celery. I also add dry onion soup mix to add some more flavor. But don't use salt then!"
