Reviews for Potato-Crusted Chicken Casserole

"This is a winner! I love the potato crust because potatoes are my favorite part of any meal, so I sliced them a little thicker, the combination of the three cheeses too was wonderful! For the breadcrumbs I used Panko and mixed them with the melted butter and the garlic powder. My husband and daughter both told me that this recipe is a keeper. So this is going into my special file of most loved recipes."
"I liked this recipe a lot. I thought it was easy to make because it was a one dish meal. I don't like thyme or basil so I left all of those seasonings out and used a product I found at the health food store called "Vegesal". I can't cook anything without it!"
"I made this dish last night and it was excellent. It does take a while to prepare since there are two parts to the recipe. I will make this again but because my husband is not fond of cream sauces, I will only prepare it occasionally. Here is the link to my review and photos:http://community.tasteofhome.com/community_forums/f/29/p/882548/7616119.aspx#7616119"
"Love this Recipe! Have also made it for friends who just had babies, both have asked for the recipe. I just up the veggies to 3 cups."
"I agree with other reviewers--not a bad dish, but lots of work. I have better chicken pot-pie-type recipes that I will make in the future."
