Reviews for Chicken Artichoke Casserole
"Pretty good but we didn't care for the taste of savory, perhaps will use tarragon next time. I added a half carton of sliced mushrooms which was good but it needs some onion as well. Having said that it was easy to put together and had plenty of sauce, will try it again."
"For those that don't care for artichoke try substituting spinach."
"made just like the recipe and it is very very good!"
