For a quick, hearty main dish that's ideal when the weather's warm, try this casserole. With cooked chicken, it bakes in just half an hour. People love the tasty sauce and cheese on top. -Bob Breno, Strongsville, Ohio

"Very good! The tarragon added a great flavor. But the sauce was a little thick. I think next time I might add a little chicken broth to thiin out the thick creaminess. Will definitely make this again!"

"I have been using this recipe for years and my family ( Grandkids ) love it. I do adjust by using noodles and adding pepper and salt to taste. Is great with whole cranberries on the side:) Our Toddler grands love it!"

"My family likes this casserole a lot-especially my 11 year old daughter. I don't put as much tarragon in as the recipe calls for since it is a strong spice. Nice, mild casserole."

"This had no flavour, other than the tarragon which didn't seem to go with the dish. At least it did stay creamy, though."

"I thought this was pretty good and very easy. I used less tarragon and I think that's a pretty good idea. I think next time I will brown the chicken or use rotisserie for more flavor."
