Reviews for Chicken-Mushroom Deluxe
"I love this recipe! I make it all the time. I often put the casserole together (but don't bake it yet) the day before a church potluck and refrigerate it until the next day. Then when I remove it from the fridge I bake it for an hour at 350F and it comes out perfect! I also usually substitute chopped red bell pepper for the pimentos. I love the flavor that the bell peppers give it! It's a very delicious recipe and I always receive many compliments and requests for the recipe whenever I make it!"
