This was super easy and very tasty. I didn't understand why it had to be cooked in the oven for TWO whole hours after the chicken was already cooked on the range, but after I ate it I knew that there would have been no other way to get chicken that tender. Yummy! (and there are LOTS of left overs!)

I'd describe this recipe as "good grub." It is a good, uncomplicated use of routine ingredients and doesn't require a lot of fuss. The results are decently good...not company fare, but just fine nonetheless.

I really gives this 3.5 stars because although it was "good," I wasn't as wowed by it either. When served over hot rice, it IS filling and it IS tasty, and everyone like it but I don't think the 2 hour cooking time made it all that much more moist or flavorful. I'm patient enough for a two-hour wait when it results in something "fabulous" - not just "good." Perhaps I should have started it the night before as suggested by the submitter. Either way, my less-than-positive review is NOT a reflection on the taste, just the prep time and final results. I'd say try it if you love chicken and celery (and you have the time). Thanks!

Great recipe! Heck, it didn't last past the first night. I threw the celery, etc. in with the chicken as it finished browning. I ended up using a smaller dish to bake it in; the 9x13 just looked too big. Smelled and tasted wonderful.

A crowd pleaser and it is more like 6-8 servings. If you, I mean, all 4 of you were Football players or Vikings it might be 4 servings. Exspecially good over rice that uses chicken noodle soup as the liquid.

This was a really great and tasty recipe. I followed it to the letter and will make again. I served it over egg noodles. It is definitely more than four servings. More like 6-8. Thanks Paul!

I made the recipe exactly how it was listed, but it was very "runny." It tasted fine, but it didn't make me think of casserole in the normal sense.
