    Hubby raved about this and said I could make it all the time. I'll admit it's pretty basic and could easily be jazzed up with different vegetables and less cheese. I would definitely go with reduced fat ingredients where possible.

    gave points for ease of preparation. not a bad dish, just okay. If I revisit this, I will definitely try to add more complexity/depth to it. No ideas yet but....

    Very bland....definitely needs more seasoning. I should have known better. I always end up adding some of my own seasoning to these recipes, but this one I didn't because I was in a hurry with hungry kids. I would not make this again.

    I made half this recipe for two of us cuz we were in the mood for comfort food. Although good and satisfying it needs more flavor - definitely salt and lots of pepper. I added about 1/2 cup chopped onion and about half of a diced red pepper. I also subbed peas for the corn (personal preference) and fresh mushroom. I sauteed the veggies before adding them to the chicken. I also layered the cheese on the stuffing then the veggie/chicken mixture then on top of the soup. The stuffing turn into a very soft, velvety texture and would be better if it were a little crispy.

    Hubby liked it ok but not really my type of meal. I think it would taste better as a pot pie. Just my taste

    I cooked this recipe from frozen and it was very good. However, it did not cook in the time stated. Most freezer recipes instruct to thaw the dish overnight in the refrigerator and then bake. Next time, I think I will thaw and then bake. Or at least defrost in the microwave for 15 minutes first which is what I did tonight when I removed it from the oven and it was still frozen after 1-1/2 hours. Placed it in the microwave on defrost for 15 minutes and then put it back in the oven uncovered for 15 minutes as stated in the recipe.
