Reviews forScalloped Chicken Casserole
"We really liked this recipe! We did make a few changes. We are not fond of mayo, so we used low-fat sour cream instead. We also did not have cheddar cheese, so we used all mozzarella instead. It was a bit more moist than we wanted. We will probably try a little less milk next time. Still, all-in-all, a great dinner. Even better, our four-year-old son liked it :)"
