It's nice to have an alternative to the traditional baked ham on Easter. This comforting casserole is always a crowd pleaser. Using rotisserie chicken from the deli makes prep simple. —Christina Petri, Alexandria, Minnesota

"This is a very tasty casserole. Not overly rich just good down to earth flavors. Very easy to scale down for just

2. I did make the full recipe for the sauce. And I reduced some of the fat and carbs by using rice flour instead of the flour and omitting the butter in the Ritz crackers. I only used 6 Crackers. We felt that was plenty and I used Alpine Lace low salt Swiss cheese.
Next time I will switch out the peas and will go with Broccoli and will add some Mushrooms.
I also bumped up the taste by using a little poultry seasoning.
This ones quick easy and tasty

"Made this for supper last night to use up what was left of a rotisserie chicken. It was very tasty but I think it needed a little more spice. I will add some seasoned salt and more pepper to my leftovers when I reheat them tonight. Would make a great potluck dish!"

"Yum! This was easy to assemble and using rotisserie chicken was a time saver. I liked that it did not include canned soup. The only change I made was using green onions in place of shallots. I may try it with broccoli next time because my husband isn't a big fan of peas, but he enjoyed this peas and all. I will make this again."

"I made this recipe today! I'd used 3 scallions, chopped. The amounts of shredded Swiss cheese and chicken broth I'd reduced since I did not have the FULL amounts. The rotisserie chicken I did not have available, so I used grilled cooked chicken from my supermarket salad bar to equal 5-1/2 cups which I'd cubed when making this dish. I baked 30 minutes until heated through. Great recipe and delicious taste! "Volunteer Field Editor""

"Great recipe! The rotisserie chicken makes it easy to put together. Flavors are wonderful and the peas add a nice, sweet crunch. Didn't have shallots so I used a sweet onion, and used panko crumbs for the topping. Next time I'll increase the pasta and double the sauce. Definitely a keeper!"

"Since I didn't have egg noodles, I used whole grain elbow macaroni. Whole grain pasta is all I use anyway. easy to assemble with a great taste. Will make again."

"Prepared this last night for dinner - put half in the freezer - it was delicious - I did omit the nutmeg, not a big fan and did not have Shallots so I used green onions from our garden - otherwise did it as stated. easy to prepare and with using a rotisserie chicken it made it so easy."
