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

"I prepared this recipe and I did make adjustments to it-I used less chicken-about 2 cups,

a 1 lb. 2-oz. can of Progresso Creamy Mushroom soup, 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise, 1/2 medium chopped onion, 2 minced garlic cloves. I'd omitted the flour and milk since the cream of mushroom
soup already had thickening! I used 1 cup frozen mixed vegetables, about 1-1/2 to 2 cups cooked sliced baby carrots, 2 tsp. lemon juice, and kept the amount of salt and pepper as is.
I used 1/2 package of stuffing mix with 1/2 the water and 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine.
After preparing the stuffing, I topped the casserole with it. I also used 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 qt.
casserole, lightly greased. I baked at 350o F. for 40 to 45 minutes. I left the rice, celery and pimientos out, plus the peas! I'm rating this recipe as a 5 now! (I'd been asked by my Mom to prepare a meal and so I thought that I'd use up our leftover chicken and cooked baby carrots, then improvise on this recipe! My Mom & I had this tonight for a late supper and my Mom said that it was very tasty & very nice! The stuffing was a nice chance from a cornflake topping!) delowenstein"

"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."

"This recipe was good, but needs a little more moisture even though the rice is already cooked. :)"
