"This was a family favorite! Three generations of happy customers. Given the busy day we had, rotisserie chickens were the way to go for the 4 cups in this recipe... super moist and tender. Having read other reviews, I sauteed an onion in some garlic and butter. No complaints on the recipe, though. easy and delicious. In fact, there were barely any leftovers... and what little went into the fridge ended up being fought over the next day. Two weeks later and we're making it again. Yum!!"

"I first had this when my sister prepared it, right off the recipe without additions - it was delicious! I did make a few additions, only because I had a few items in my produce drawer I wanted to use up. I had 1/2 of a white onion, a rib of celery and a large carrot - diced up and sauteed with 2 garlic cloves in olive oil. It was fabulous! And I agree with some other reviewers - note to others: if you consider a recipe to be too high in sodium or not to your liking that you have to alter the dish beyond recognition ... don't make it, or don't review it based on YOUR alterations. Just step away from the keyboard!"

"This is delicious and very easy to make. I did add garlic and sauteed with some onions. If you think the sodium is too high try using no salt added soups. I will be making this on a regular basis."

"I liked this recipe for it's simplicity and adaptability, but I found it to be a little bland, despite my changes and additions. Next time I think I will start by sauteing an onion with a little garlic in butter before moving on. I think I might also either add some garlic powder to the topping or use one of those packages of garlic drop biscuits that Bisquick makes.

The changes I made were as follows:
I halved the recipe and cooked it in an 8x8 pan for 40 minutes. I used leftover Thanksgiving turkey, two very small (2ish oz) packages of broccoli and cheese, 1 can health request cream of chicken, Greek yogurt in place of sour cream, 3 new potatoes, and 1/2 cup frozen mixed vegetables. I also added about a tsp of salt-free garlic and herb seasoning and lots of black pepper. I simmered it for about 20 minutes before pouring it into the dish and baking so the flavors could meld.
We really liked it but felt it needed some jazzing up to make it more flavorful."

"Hubby says ""5 Stars"...

I made 1/2 batch using one chicken breast. Cooked diced chicken in Dutch oven, added extra butter and browned a couple of Tbl. flour then adding liquids. Added cooked diced potato and cooked mixed veggies. 1/2 batch of dumplings/cheese on top. Baked until dumplings done but they didn't brown well. I think it was because the sides of the Dutch oven were so much higher. However, this worked out so well I wouldn't change a thing. Would recommend it and will fix it again myself"

"Just made this and it was great! My husband and I loved it - I did make some changes though. I used the healthy Request soups - I just used one can of cream of mushroom and one can of cream of chicken. I also did not put in the broccoli with cheese sauce. Instead, I used a 19 ounce bag of mixed veggies (peas, green beans, carrots, and corn). I did add some shredded cheese to the mixture to thicken it just a bit. In addition, I did not use the 3 tablespoons of butter for the topping - I substituted 3 tablespoons of extra light olive oil instead. It turned out great and I will definitely make it again sometime!"
