"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."

"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! "

"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!)"

"Simple, easy and delicious! My 7y.o. daughter wants to start learning to cook, so she decided to make this for the family. She was so proud :) It's nice to have recipes that are simple but still delicious and healthy. We modified the recipe by using healthy Request soups in attempts to bring the sodium and fat down."

"Very tasty! I liked it just the way it was (followed exact directions) but my husband thought it was bland. But then again, he puts Tabasco on vitrually everything LOL! To luvmy2cats--I used 4 cans total but in most "cream" soup recipes you can substitute if you don't have a certain soup. For example I could've made this with 2 cans of cream of chicken and 2 cans of cream of mushroom if I didn't have the cream of celery...hope this helps :)"

"Easy to make and simply delicious for when you're in the mood for comfort food. I did it with cream of celery and cream of chicken with mushroom soup. I also sauted the chicken (adding a bit of seasonings to the chicken at this point), onion and vegetables in a bit of oil before adding the soup and milk and butter to the pot, then mixed in the noodles and put it all in the oven. No bowl required! Yummy."
