Editor's NoteThis recipe was tested with McCormick’s Montreal Steak Seasoning. Look for it in the spice aisle.

This dish is delicious! Minor changes that I made: cooked chicken tenderloins and then shredded them instead of cutting... just prefer the texture. Not a huge fan of onions, so used a T. of dried onions. Also used fresh red peps instead of jarred roasted. My son actually commented, " The peppers are a nice touch!"

Joyceemery - The steak seasoning is in the spice aisle - the one listed is made by McCormick. If you can't find it, you can sub pepper and garlic salt or just salt and pepper. I just made this again for a potluck and everyone raved about it.

I see in the reviews someone asked what to use for "STEAK SEASONING" but I don't see a response . I want to make this but I am holding out until I see an answer.

For Char9 and Tammie2412; There are obviously plenty of sites that cater to the types of recipes that you seem to prefer. I can't help but wonder why you spend so much time on sites that do not appear to have a large number of recipes that you will even consider making, let alone that you would bother to comment negatively without making it. Now, I don't go onto the sites that suit you and complain about the recipes being inedible because of all of the "healthy" ingredients and give them bad ratings without even making the recipe. So I am absolutely dumbfounded that you would bother. However, most of your complaints about this particular recipe could be taken care of by simply making your own homemade versions of the ingredients to which you are objecting. One of the "offending ingredients" is the "cream of" soup and you can find a base recipe for a homemade dried soup recipe for that at https://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/sos-mix/ . I do hope you find a way to be happier in your life because I believe that worrying about and "hating" everything will probably shorten a person's life more than whatever they eat.

This casserole was easy to make and used pantry staples, always a plus to me! Also, my hubby who is not a fan of casseroles ate this and said it was really good...even had seconds!

This is now a favorite dinner with my family. Also, I want to answer chris1414: You badmouthed this recipe as if everyone is going to serve this seven days a week. Would you also criticize a hot fudge sundae as being too "bad" for us? As my kids say, "Get a life."

We really loved this casserole! If you already have leftover cooked chicken, it's a breeze. I doubled the recipe and instead of cream of chicken soup, I used one can of cream of mushroom and one can of cream of celery. I only used one onion and instead of canned mushrooms, used sliced fresh mushrooms which I sauteed along with the onions. Everything else was the same. The casserole was delicious - and we loved the creamy sauce. Will definitely make again!

Chris 1414 do you think it’s fair to rate a recipe that you haven’t tried? It is certainly your choice to not make it but the rest of us can read the nutritional facts for ourselves. That being said I liked this recipe and so did my family and I will make again.bythe way my grandmother is a 100 yrs young and has been eating food like this her whole life.
