    I really appreciated how this had a different flavor than the typical "cream of chicken soup casserole." I followed the instructions, but added some cheddar cheese to the top after I took the cover off. Delicious. It definitely took me longer than 20 minutes to prepare, but I'm a slow cook.

    Haven't made, but plan to do so. I will elimate the olives and add mixed vegetables instead. Maybe a small amount of shredded cheese on top.

    I have not tried it yet but it looks good. I could see making it without the rice then cook either rice, butter noodles or mashed potatoes on the side and add this on top. I'm not a big olive fan so mixed veggies would be a good add.

    Very delicious!!! I did not put mushrooms in because i don't like them, also only put 2 cups of chicken in & no parsley flakes. Turned out wonderful!

    I used the Healthy Request soup and fat free sour cream. I also substituted frozen mixed veggies for the olives. It was super good! My husband and toddler loved it as well.

    Cut amounts in half, used low fat, low sodium soup and light sour cream. It was delicious!

    I cut recipe in half, used an 8x8 baking dish; it was delicious. Got raves from my family. Will definitely fix again. Gave copies to my sister and friends also.
