MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 1, 2013

This was just ok. Really liked the crescent roll top with the cheese and almonds. The chicken gravy thing not so much. I used light sour cream and light miracle whip and it still managed to be EXTREMELY thick and heavy feeling. We felt very tired and slightly ill after consumption and we're not ones to have a sensitive stomach. If you're looking for a very heavy, very fattening casserole this is probably it. If you're looking for something that's a healthier casserole I would definitely try something else.

Nice meal on a cool fall night. I used reduced-fat everything except for the Swiss cheese with delicious results.
