  1. So yummy!!! I added chopped bacon into this (I used frozen broccoli on the bottom) and added smoked paprika as a seasoning, and cheddar cheese. Will make this again soon!5 stars

  2. Super easy and so tasty, it’s a little addicting! My husband is not a big fan of most chicken meals but he really likes this and even asks for me to make it. I’ve used different cream soups and different veggies – frozen or canned – and it’s all good. I top it with shredded cheddar and it adds a nice zing with the sour cream.5 stars

  3. I made this for dinner tonight and everyone loved it! I confess I made the stuffing using the box instructions which added 1/2 stick of butter (yum!). It fit in an 8×11 dish. Sprinkled a little grated Parmesan cheese on top before baking 25 minutes. Excellent, quick
    and very tasty! Thanks Holly!5 stars

  4. Made this last night – very good overall. Used shredded chicken I had on hand, but I do think diced would be better. Used a 12 oz bag of frozen vegetable blend, broccoli, cauliflower and carrots,, so added 3/4 cup of chopped celery, which added a bit of taste and crunch. Also added salt and pepper. Next time I think I will add some chopped onion also for a bit more flavor enhancement. Looking forward to making it again.4 stars

  5. I would have rated it higher, however, the recipe is not written very well. Step 3 doesn’t indicate if soup, sour cream and veggie are to be mixed, or you just dump it all in the baking dish? If you cook, you probably know what to do. For someone who doesn’t cook, I am sure it is confusing. I chose to mix it all together and top with stuffing.3 stars

  6. Five stars. I needed a quick meal. I had rotisserie chicken in the refrig. I followed the recipe exactly. I put a fine layer of sharp cheddar on top as suggested. It was delicious. The weather today in Connecticut was very cold and windy. A perfect meal for a cold weather day. I’m sure that it would be good to sauté vegetables and add it to the mix. Not necessary.
    It was easy and quick to put together. I had all the ingredients in the house. It was delicious. Five stars in my book. Thank you!5 stars

  7. I made this yesterday; it was excellent; only difference was I had leftover gravy from my roast chicken. I used to make this a long time ago but lost the recipe.5 stars

  8. Great recipe!
    I did change it up a bit. I used chicken thighs, cream of celery, sour cream and frozen peas. I also sautéed onions and carrots.Was so good! Definitely adding it to my meal plan!5 stars

  9. I sauteed peas, carrots, onions, corn, and a 1/2 tsp of rosemary with 2 tablespoons of butter in a sauce pan. Once the onions were translucent I added 1/4 cup of flour and stirred until blended. I then added 2 cups of chicken broth and 1/2 cup of half and half. I salt and peppered the mixture to taste, then added 1 tablespoon of mina harissa. I let it sit on top of the stove for an hour so that the flavors would mesh. I poured it into the 9×13 dish and topped it with the stuffing soaked in chicken broth instead of water. My goodness it was delish!5 stars

  10. I followed the directions exactly, and this was extremely dry, although had flavor, the recipe needs more moisture1 star

  11. This provides as a great base. But otherwise it’s incredibly bland without the addition of spices/ herbs and sautéed onions, celery, and garlic. I add 1/2&1/2 and sour cream to the emptied can and stir that concoction up and pour that mixture in, instead of just plain sour cream. Super good and easy to flavor a variety of ways. So again great base idea!!3 stars

  12. After reading the comments, I sauteed some celery in butter and added some chicken base to the water for the stuffing. I added mushrooms and additional herbs(rosemary, thyme & dill) to the chicken mixture. It was delicious. I will definitely make it again.5 stars

    1. So good. I used cooked chicken drumsticks meat. Thank you for sharing your recipe. Appreciate it. Continue to be a blessing to others like me. God bless.5 stars

  13. This was delicious! I used the homemade stuffing recipe, and a rotisserie chicken. It was like Thanksgiving in a bowl! My 72 yr old husband, 40 year old son and 6 year old grandson all loved it! Will definitely make again!5 stars

  14. When I make this I do a first layer of stuffing. So there is a very moist/mushy layer that blends with the chicken+soup mix and crunchy top layer. I also add mushrooms and poach my chicken in milk and butter with herbs first (that liquid is mixed with the canned soups. Delicious.5 stars
