My husband has never been too fond of chicken, but he certainly likes it prepared this way. My children love this dish, too, and they make it often in their own homes. For easy preparation, make everything but the topping a day ahead and then refrigerate it. Add the topping before baking.

"This dish was a huge disappointment for me. I added hot sauce, garlic, and cheese for additional flavor but it still turned out quite lackluster. The biggest turnoff is the texture, which is gummy and disgusting. It took me a lot of time to prepare and bake this dish and I certainly expected more. I would never serve this to anyone or make it again. What a waste of time and money!"

"My family enjoyed this recipe. I added 1 tsp. poultry seasoning and 1/4 tsp. pepper. I would make this dish again."

"This was terrible. Very bland. Kinda like eating hospital food. My husband never complains if he doesn't like something. He just coats it with Ranch dressing. Needless to say this was coated in Ranch..."

"My family and I consider this recipe the ultimate comfort food. I usually add a few frozen peas and diced carrots. It's one of the recipes that both of my sons requested for their own cookbooks when they moved away from home."
