    I think someone needs a math lesson. I saw a review that showed 1464 mg of sodium! Wow. I though surly that the whole dish. Well, my math being my math, I come up with 2230 mg of sodium for the dish. That would be 546mg per serving, which sounds better. I personally would add a touch more(I know the pirates will LOVE me for it .... ) but that is up to you. Pepper and other spices added to taste(like the hot sauce)! I am doing this tonight.

    Amazing. 1464 gm of sodium per serving -- and you give this to your kids and call it "good." Certainly not good for them. Or anyone. Why would a respectable magazine publish something like this? And it is not the first time. Many recipes here are "good" but not healthy. I say those are not good. I would hope the editors would be more responsible and demonstrate more concern for the health of their readers. There are plenty of recipes that are both good and healthy. Let's not have the killer recipes.

    Love this! Tasted even better then 2nd day! I had to make a meal that could sit until we came home. I made this ahead of time and kept it warm in a crockpot so all the ingredients cooked longer (added the cheese after I got home). I stock instead of water and half valvetta (that's all I had) and half white cheddar. It was amazing! My family of 3 gobbled it up in 1 night and 1 lunch! Great with crackers or by itself!

    This was super quick and easy; I used a rotisserie chicken to speed it up even more.

    This is good but it would taste even better with fresh ingredients.

    I switched it up and used ham in place of chicken and broccoli in place of mixed veggies. I also add hot sauce to taste. Going to use cream of broccoli soup next time. So easy to vary to any tastes.

    Sounded good, but did not make-too many calories, too much fat and too much sodium
