My husband of 51 years loves to eat and I love to cook, so we're both happy when I make this casserole. It's nice and creamy with a little crunch from almonds. The chicken is canned, but you'd never know it from the taste.—Mrs. Darrell Plinsky, Wichita, Kansas
I sometimes make this recipe with leftover chicken and rice. My children keep me running most of the day, so a quick casserole for dinner helps smooth out bumps in our schedule.—Beth Pallwitz, Tacoma, Washington
"The recipe for this almond-topped casserole has been in our family for years," notes Sharon Skildum of Maple Grove, Minnesota. "It's as comforting as chicken rice soup, so it's on our dinner table often."
"On our busy ranch, we often need meals we can put on the table in a hurry," remarks Kat Thompson, Prineville, Oregon. "This all-in-one chicken dish - with its delicate lemon flavor - fits the bill...and it's inexpensive to boot."
