Reviews for Chicken in Potato Baskets
"Delicious except too salty. Next time, I will omit the added salt."
"Delicious!! I shred my own potatoes for the hash browns and it's just as great!"
"Family hit the second time I made these. I actually partially cook my hashbrowns in the microwave before shaping them in the ramekins. I also like to sprinkle shredded cheddar or colby cheese before baking. Just adds another depth of flavor."
"This was very good. I made it years ago but forgot about it. I need to make it again."
"Love this! Have made it lots of times already."
"Delicious! My whole family loved it & said "it's a keeper". I didn't have custard cups so I used a 9x9 square dish & layered the hash brown mixture on bottom, then poured the filling on top. I used cubed hash browns and it worked well. bake as per recipe. Highly recommend!"
"Love it!! I have made this several times.. Very easy and something different.."
"These potpies are easy to prepare and the combination of potatoes, chicken and basil are a winner!"
