    This was spectacular! My husband gave it top reviews and said to be sure and make it again and again! The flavors are interesting and a little out of the ordinary; every bite is a pleasure! It's easy too!

    Add a can of Rotel to this for an amazing different take on the original.

    This was a great family recipe. I substituted for items I had on hand using turkey and cream of bacon soup. I threw in some leftover green beans and seasoned it with garlic powder, salt and pepper.

    This is a very good casserole. I read the reviews and cooked the onions with the chicken to avoid them not being done. Seasoned salt was subbed for steak seasoning. I also made my homemade substitute version of consensed soup since I don't purchase it.

    For those asking what to use in place of steak seasoning - garlic salt plus some pepper. You could also use just plain salt and pepper. The steak seasoning has coarsely ground pepper in it, but any salt and pepper will do.

    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!"

    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.
