We really enjoyed this recipe! I made two small changes though because it's what I had. 1)I poached 3 large chicken breasts in chicken broth and then chopped them up for the recipe and 2) I used one can of Cream of Chicken soup and one can of Cream of Celery soup. I think it turned out great. It's even better the next day.

I have this casserole cooking in the oven as i sit here and type. I couldnt figure out if it was one can of cream of chicken and one can of cream of mushroom.....or 2 cans of each. Now i wish i would have cooked my noodles first. I'm nervous! We'll see how it turns out!

This was pretty darn tasty. I prefer fresh chicken, so I stewed 4 large breasts and cut them up instead. I also added extra cheese and extra ritz crackers on top. My husband loved it. It was really interesting because the noodles didn't seem like noodles, yet they provided a nice, starchy texture like what you'd expect in a casserole like this. I wonder what potatoes would be like? I would even consider leaving the chicken out next time and serving as a side dish. Also, as weird as it may sound to others, I think this would be absolutely delightful with green peas mixed in, so I may try that. I'll definitely be making this again.

IMPORTANT: Hi I am the original poster. I lost my original account due to marrying and changing my old email. :( If you like spicy try my "different chicken divan" with rice and use 1 TBS Curry only. For this recipe, I said use a LG sour cream. In my mind that is the Mayfields LG container. So if you don't use that size, it will be dryer. The Large container of Sour Cream mentioned means Mayfield's brand Large. It is 1 lb 8 oz. (or 680G) Now I have to buy more SCs to make it as big as Mayfields brand, which is not available in my current area. Hope this helps! It IS super creamy! Anyone who did not like it either did it wrong or just didn't like it. I always use SWEET ONIONS. I never precook noodles as it makes mush. I do cover it for the first half of cooking, did I remember to say that??? It was a few yrs ago that I posted this. This has great flavour if done correctly. People will fight over who ate the last bowl!

I made two 9x13 pans because I feed nine people, but expect leftovers. There was none left!!! I did add some jalapeno and cheddar chips to the topping and it gave it a bit of spice. I also used shredded chicken instead of canned. My boys loved it and were even scraping the casserole dish. This will definitely be served again.

REALLY REALLY good! I predict this one to eventually be in the hall of fame. My husband, who is the pickiest eater in the world (hasn't liked any of the recipes from this site in 2 years), really liked this one. It is simple, and I cut the fat and calories by using reduced fat versions of the ingredients. Thanks for a keeper recipe!!

I added chopped celery to saute with the onion, then 2 minced cloves of garlic. I also added 2 tsp. each of dried parsely and coarsely ground black pepper and 1/2 c. chicken broth. Tasty, quick and easy recipe!

Man, was this good! I used leftover Thanksgiving turkey and everyone raved. I was concerned that the noodles wouldn't cook since the only "liquid" in the recipe was the sour cream and cans of condensed soup. But they cooked up fine. Thanks for the great recipe, Lisa.
