LOVE this recipe, as does anyone I've made it for. I substitute zesty Italian seasoning for the dill. Couldn't find my printed recipe after making it for company. Remember I found it in a Taste of Home cookbook; did a Goggle search, and was very pleased to find it again. It's my go-to for pot lucks.

The crust was too thick, and the recipe bland. I left out the dill. It would have been much better with some added bacon or sausage for flavor, as well as twice the sharp cheddar cheese. I refried the leftovers, minus the crust, and added bacon and cheese, to make it less watery.

This is my family's favorite casserole. Even the leftovers are awesome. I double the crust mix and omit the dill seed and hot pepper sauce

This was a nice, different way to serve chicken. I also think it could have used a bit more crust. I will also add additional seasonings to increase the flavor, but over all, we liked it and I will make this again.

Made a 1/2 recipe, but I think I would increase the crust; it didn't cover the bottom of an 8x8 pan. This was good over rice and served with a salad, strawberries, and chocolate chip cookies.

I replace the dill with celery salt. Seriously awesome! Rave reviews from all who partake! :)

I like to use at least 50% more nuts and cheese for the crust; this makes it taste really great!
