Pretty salty. I would alter the recipe to change the sodium content next time.

We didn't care for this casserole at all. I made it exactly as written. The bottom was just a clump of wet stuffing (probably too much broth) and it really lacked seasoning so the flavor was boring.

Easy and yummy. The stuffing defines the flavor so change it up and use other types of stuffing mix; you will get a totally different flavor. the sour cream makes the soup layer just that much creamier. also using Campbell's chicken & herb soup adds depth and interesting flavors.

I have made this twice now and we really enjoy it. The aroma while cooking is very nice, I can hardly wait until Thanksgiving to try it with some leftover turkey.Skygal

Thanks for the suggestion to use the slow cooker. I will definatly try this. Now... if I could find some corn bread stuffing mix.!!!

You can make this in a slow cooker very easily-mix all ingredients-cook on high in a greased slow cooker for 45 minutes, then turn to low and cook for 4 hours. Great on Sundays-it's ready when you get home from church!

We enjoyed this recipe a lot. I cut it back for 4 and it worked fine. To reduce sodium, I purchased the "Heart Healthy" condensed soup which is not only low in sodium but low in fat as well.

With the amount of Sodium that would be in the soup alone (surprising how much sodium is in soups) plus the broth (even low-sodium) and cornbread (cornbead by itself has salt added) stuffing, I believe it would be too salty for my taste.

My family loved this recipe. It will be one of our bi-wekly rotation. As far as the sodium concern, I boiled the chicken with the onions and I added garlic with the celery and I just this as my broth. It was fabulous as far as a southern liken.
