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

"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."

"Pretty good. The only thing I did differently was I subbed garlic salt for the regular salt and added a little extra onion. It would make a good filling for chicken pot pie, (if I ever would try that!)"
