Having made this countless times, I can tell you that this recipe is definitely open to variations and substitions based on your preferences and what you happen to have on hand. IMHO, 2 cups of cheese isn't enough, so I double it, generally using a combo of cheddar & jack or colby, or even parmesan. Instead of the cream of chicken, sometimes I'll sub out cheddar cheese soup, which is my favorite. I also like to sautee my onions and add a small can of diced chilies. That's a flavor combo I LOVE! The cornflake topping is classic (no need to sautee the flakes; simply melt the butter in a saucepan, add the cornflakes, stir, and add to the top of the casserole). French fried onions are great as well; I set my oven to broil and add them 2-3 minutes before done baking. Over the years, I've added sauteed green (or red) peppers as well. I've also used this as a breakfast casserole and added some maple breakfast sausage. The add-ins/possibilities are endless! Use whatever you like - holds up well to changes.
