This is my go-to chicken casserole. One of the very first TOH recipes I ever tried and continues to be a favorite 10 years later! I do use low-fat ingedients to bring the calorie count down.

The recipe turned out ok and it was easy to make but it was kind of bland even with the onions I added. The wow factor just isn't there. The cottage cheese is unnecessary with the other two cheeses.

I was surprised by this recipe as well. I was expecting it to be just another chicken casserole recipe, but it is far from that. It is now going to be a regular menu item.

This is one of THE best recipes I have ever discovered and I have been cooking for a long, long time. My entire family loves this meal and it is so easy to improvise if you lack ingredients or if you have a picky eater! My husband doesn't like olives or chilies so those don't always make it in and it still tastes amazing. I make it about once every two weeks. It's wonderful!

This is one of my faves! If I don't have one of the ingrediants on hand, I will substitute (ex. sauteed green pepper and onion) or leave it out (cottage cheese) and it is still wonderful and quick!!!
