Reviews for Salsa Verde Chicken Casserole
Sort By :
"I really wanted to like this but it turned out to be a soupy (even though I cooked my own chicken beasts), tasteless mess. All you could taste was cilantro. I do not recommended this recipe!"
"If you like casserole with a different twist, this is a really delish and easy recipe. It tastes like enchillas-ish from those not-so-Mexican restaurants. But it works for us when we are looking for easy and delish weekday meals. I added jalape?os (since I am out of green chiles) this time. I also serve it with avocado to it."
"We love this recipe. It's one of our favorites -- fresh tasting and delicious. It's what I often make for friends who have had babies or just need a meal, and people always rave about it. More than one person has said it's hands down the best meal anyone made for them."
"Great! Family loved it."
