Folks go back for seconds of this meal-in-one casserole with its down-home flavor, rich sauce and golden topping. I always bring home an empty dish. -Ruth Andrewson, Leavenworth, Washington

MY REVIEW

this is a good recipe. i make it with miracle whip instead of mayo. also i use diced red bell peppers and but if there isn't any on hand i sub green giant nibblet corn since it has that same sort of sweetness as the red bell. not as pretty but the taste is good..

suggest that you use less chicken or make a little extra sauce. using the dark meat of the chicken instead of or with the white meat will also help this dish come out more moist as well.

I wish I had read the reviews prior to making this recipe!!! I saw 4 1/2 stars and thought that rating would suffice. I think this recipe is very, very bland and totally lacks flavor. I even added one cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese. I am very disappointed!

I followed the recipe per ingredients with the exception of making an additional cup of rice and used red pepper chopped instead of pimentos. I also did an additional 3/4 cup of cornflakes and 2 T of butter.

Delicious.
