oh boy this is a keeper! i threw this together in NO TIME (i mean less than 15 minutes!!) i did do a few changes... 1. i used frozen mixed veggies instead of mushrooms. i just added them with the soup and let it simmer to cook them thru. 2. i used much less than 1 cup milk because i wanted to sauce to be thicker. 3. i added diced red onion to the dish...cooked the onions down with the chicken so they'd be translucent and a bit sweet. 4. i baked up refridgerator biscuits to put the mixture on top of. overall it was absolutely delicious and what i loved best was just how easy it was to assemble. a quick and yummy dish for those nights when we're tired!

I double this recipe, add peas ( left over ones to clean out fridge works well), omit the fresh mushrooms, and add a small can of mushrooms, and omit the pimentos. Add a 'bit' of garlic pwdr, use reg oil and extra chicken broth.and this is a wonderful FAST meal to work up after a hard day at work. We love this on Buttered Crosaunts (sp?)

My kids loved it! Definately something we'll have again! My husband doesn't care for Creamy dishes, it worked great for nights my husband was working and used up my leftover Thanksgiving Turkey at the same time!

Fantastic! It looked easy, so I left it for my husband to make while I was occupied, and he thought it was VERY easy and tasty. We served it over garlic-cheese biscuits. Leftovers look wonderful, and this recipe will live forever in our household! Thank you!!!

This was very easy and very filling. I served it over white rice and followed another reviewers comment about adding a can of cream of mushroom vs. the cream of chicken. Very delicious. Will make again.

This was so easy to cook. It took 20 minutes start to finish. My husband loved it!!! He had several helpings and took some for left overs. I will make this on a regular basis. I put it over biscuits and even my picky toddler loved it. I also added more veggies to it and gave it a bit more flavor.

Very simple recipe. I substituted cream of chicken with herb and added celery salt, peas and real onions. Lightly season the chicken before cooking because that will give it the kick it deserves.
