Reviews for Chicken Club Casseroles
"Our family LOVES this recipe! One of our favourites! We make it often."
"My family lived this recipe! Even my very picky 3 year old ate it up! It's definitely worth a try!"
"I made this and made an error or two but it turned out that the casseroles forgave me. I did find it to be a little soupy and found that this recipe, on another website called for 1 lb of pasta, not 4 cups of pasta. I think that would have made mine better."
"This was TERRIBLE! Complete waste of chicken. I'm not sure what the others enjoyed about it but it is bland and has a yucky tangy taste. Thank God I cut the recipe in half because I was only cooking for two."
"I had planned to make this casserole when I realized that I needed something that could go in the slow cooker to be ready when we got home in the evening. I halved the recipe and put it in my 3-quart slow cooker for 3 hours. I stirred it once during that time which I think helped the pasta to not stick to the sides. I added the cheese about an hour before it was done. It turned out great! We don't care for tomatos so I substituted green pepper. I would definitely do this again."
"My family liked this recipe very much. I think I could have sat and ate the entire casserole myself! LOVE IT!!!!"
"We love this!"
"Very much enjoyed this casserole. Reminded me of a salad my mom makes with fresh tomatoes, pasta and mayo. My husband isn't big into spinach, but even he said I could make it again! Good job."
"Yummy! This was delicious. Next time I will probably make the whole thing in a larger baking dish instead so we have some leftovers for the next day!"
"My entire family hated this - which was a first. I ended up reheating leftovers and tossed the entire casserole. Just had a weird taste."
"I made this casserole for my family last night and it was wonderful. Tastes just like the sandwich only w/ pasta! I will definately make this again! Really like the fresh spinach in it too!"
