It was OK, but the next time I'd use either cream of celery or cream of chicken soup, and also add a seasoning (like sage, that someone had suggested) to give it more flavoring. I also omitted the mushrooms since a member of my family doesn't care for them. Also I would mix the broccoli in with the sauce or layer it differently so none of of the broccoli would peek through the stuffing and get overdone. I used fresh broccoli and cooked it slightly in the microwave before I began cooking the rest of the dish. This recipe worked well to be cooked in two 8x8 pans, and the leftovers I reheated in the microwave the second night and tasted really good.

This was first time I made this recipe and it was a big hit! I replaced the raisins with cranberries for my family. Everyone loved it in a family of 8.

I am not usually a casserole lover, though I make them to be cost conscious. This was one of my favorites ever! I did change a couple things: didn't peel the apple and used 3/4 cup dried cranberries. Added about 1/2 tsp of sage and plenty of pepper to the chicken/mushroom mixture. Used cream of celery soup to give it some contrasting flavor and only used 3/4 cup sour cream so it wouldn't be too mushy. Also reduced broccoli by about a cup so it wouldn't overpower. Baked for 25 minutes so the topping was crunchy. Everyone loved it - even my 2 year old!

Have been preparing this Recipe for over 2 Decades. Had no idea a "special". I call it,"Chicken Surprise".Use Any Vegetable if out of Broccoli.Try this again,anyway You'd prefer,just keeping Sodium Low is Best.Have Allergies,so Adjusted Ingredients Always~Dark Raisins,Garlic Powder in Place of Cloves.No Olive Oil because they All taste Bitter.Love the "Core" Recipe,Always.

This was okay but not spectacular. I think it would be better with chopped up broccoli and maybe mix everything together instead of layering it.
