I found this recipe in a cookbook we received as a wedding gift and altered it to fit my family’s tastes. Now, I always cook enough extra chicken so we can have this casserole the next day. My husband and daughters rush to the table when they know it’s on the menu. –Janet Applin, Gladstone, Michigan

"Okay, here's the scoop...My husband and I loved the flavor of this dish. If it were only the two of us eating, I would rate it a 5. However, we have three children to consider. There are alot of vegetables hidden in the dish. I could not even convince my kids to eat it, which is a shame because it is tasty. I will make the dish again (for mature guests) except I think I will increase the sauce a bit more. I thought it should be just a little creamier than it was. The overall taste of this dish is "chicken Pot pie" comfort food."
