I created this noodle casserole when my husband was craving a dish his aunt used to make. It tastes and smells great and is now a staple at our house. —Mari Warnke, Fremont, Wisconsin

"Enjoyed this dish and would make it again because it's easy to prepare and my family really enjoyed it. It also made a ton of food! The four of us didn't even touch the second pan and I wish I had frozen it rather than bake it. But the flavors were good and I didn't change anything or add any toppings. Some French fried onions would have been tasty though!"

"I always read the reviews first, however, I was in a hurry did not. SAUTE THE ONIONS. Or as someone else suggested, top with French's French Fried Onions. Other than that, it was tasty. Similar to chicken pot pie on the quick. I'll make again but mix it up a bit."

"I liked it. It's a nice country style dish. I thought it was pretty easy to make. Definitely saut? the onion or chop them fine if you don't want your onions crunchy. I also added another cup to cup and a half of noodles to make it thicker. Also added corn to the frozen peas and carrots."

"I feel terrible saying this, but I Just don't understand how this got such high ratings. I followed the advice of several other reviewers who said it was bland and tweaked it. I happened to have a thick slice of deli ham on hand from another recipe so I cubed that with the chicken. The ham was better and I wished I had used all ham instead. I saut?ed the onion along with bell pepper, celery, and garlic. I also added about a cup of shredded cheddar mixed in and crushed Ritz crackers on top. With all of those additions it was still just a take it or leave it dish. So for the amount of prep time it actually took, I have other recipes I prefer to spend the time on. I was looking for a tastey and easy weeknight supper but I would think if you make it the easy way as the recipe calls for it would have no taste at all."

"My family is not a big fan of onions so I chose to omit them, BUT I crush butter crackers & sprinkle them on top & follow the baking directions"

"Very good. For future casseroles, and just because of my personal preference...I will saute the onion first. If you are not a big fan of crunchy onion, then I would suggest this for you, as well. Thank you for the wonderful recipe! "

"Used stir fry veggies and only 3 cans of soup, 2 chicken and 1 celery. It was really good. Topped w/ French's French Fried Onions to give it some crunch. We can eat on this most of the week."

"Yum! I used sautéed veggies instead of frozen and only 3 cans of soup . I prefer to sauté the onion before using in dishes like this to avoid crunchy onion in every bite."
