I never bring home leftovers whenever I take this creamy, stick-to-your-ribs casserole to a potluck. Its mild flavor has broad appeal. I especially like the way that the crumb topping adds a bit of crunch to each meaty serving. -Faye Hintz, Springfield, Missouri

"This dish is one of my favorites! It's great to eat when you're not feeling well or when you have lots of people over for a family dinner. Definitely a good dish!"

"This was an easy way to use leftover chicken. I substituted cream of mushroom soup because that's all I had in the pantry. Served it over rice & everyone enjoyed it."

"My father-in-law likes bland, so this is a good recipe for him. I add some chopped leftover spaghetti and cheese to make an easy meal. I make a smaller batch for just the 2 of us when I have a little leftover chicken."

"Wonderfully tasty recipe and easy enough for my 12 year old daughter and I to make together! Used lemon pepper and fresh parmesian w/the crushed butter crackers. Rice would be wonderful, but couldn't convince my egg noodle loving family!"

"This is a very easy recipe and very delicious! The only thing I did different was I put a layer of rice underneath the chicken mix and I used saltines as that is all I had on hand. I added the rice under before baking so the rice would absorb some of the flavor. Very good flavor!"
