"The entire family rated this a 5-star keeper! I read over the comments and the make-over recipe before starting. Here are my changes:

1 can chicken soup instead of 2 cans cr of celery.
1 1/3 c chicken broth
I bunch gereen onions chopped instead of regular onion.
3/4 c parmesan cheese in casserole and 1/4 for topping.
1/2 pkg fresh baby spinach leaves loosely chopped
Instead of pimiento, used 1 4 oz can diced green chiles
instead of bread cubes or crumbs, Used 1 cup of tortilla chip crumbs in the last 15 minutes of cooking.
I also used a brown rice and wild rice mix instead of the white rice mix.
the casserole was nice and creamy and the chips and cheese on top gave it a nice little crunch."

"There was not one morsel of this left over!!! My family loved it!!! The only thing I did not have was the water chestnuts."

"This is one of our favorites -- everything goes together so well. I use bread crumbs instead of cubes, and prepare them as directed (I think with water). Make sure to not over cook it, other wise it can be a little dry. I like the suggestions for parmesean cheese and I might try to add a little bit of chicken broth. Overall -- excellent!"

"please do not waste your time on this receipe. It took a lot of prep and pricey ingredients for it to be wasted. It was dry. The written recipe also doesn't say what to do with the stuffing cubes (prepared or unprepared?). I chose un-prepared and they were hard and not good."

"I substituted healthier versions of ingredients, but it was a little dry and could use some liquid. Also, I think the stuffing on top could be good with crushed crackers. Water chestnuts gave a nice textural contrast."

"I took away the bread chunks and added a little parm to the mixture and over the top...I also cut up fresh celery for it too, and instead of two soups, I added half a can of chix stock. Everyone loved it."
