"My mom and I invented this recipe with EASE in mind, it's a one dish complete meal. Best of all, even my veggie hating children LOVE it! It can be made with sweet peas, or with spinach.... both are delish."

My husband and daughter really liked this dish, so I am giving this 4 stars. I personally think it deserves a three. This recipe has potential. I did not make it as written, I used cream cheese instead of cool whip. I am sorry, but cool whip just doesn't belong in a chicken dish... That is what unsweetened whipped cream is for. I thought the spinach was a nice addition. I will make it again, but with several changes. I definitely would not just glom it all together in the pot! It may be easy but the globs of velveeta were kinda gross. You are supposed to make the cheese sauce seperately, then add to the casserole. This recipe needs work in order to make it into my normal cooking rotation...
This receipe has a lot of potential. I took everyone's suggestions and added a few things in myself to make this recipe pretty good.
Here's how to make this recipe good:
-Substitute cream cheese for whipped topping.
-Melt cream cheese together with 1/2 c. sharp white cheddar and 1/2 c. mild yellow cheese. Add this melted mixture to the other ingredients after they are mixed.
-Stick to the cream of mushroom.
-Add a diced onion that has been cooked a little (I boiled it with my chicken strips to make both really tender).
-Lots of salt, pepper and milk.
-It could stand to bake for less time.
-I added parmesean and breadcrumbs to the top before baking.
I hope these suggestions help!
This recipe was okay; however, I would ommit the whipped topping. It gave it a very odd flavor that just got sickining after a while. Someone asked what that flavor was and I told them the whipped topping and they were quite surprised that I put whipped topping in a chicken casserole. I would use cream of chicken instead of mushroom unless you're really crazy about the cream of mushroom flavor. Also, a package of frozen peas with carrot would really brighten this up. Also, I cubed my chicken for easy bites.
Good recipe ideal, but just needed some fine tuning.
This was just so-so. We did not care for the cool whip flavor in it. I make a chicken and noodles and tuna and noodles identical to this without the whipped topping and we like that much better. I thought the kids would enjoy eating whipped cream in their dinner but boy was I wrong.
Not bad, but I think it needed more vegetables in it to give it more of a flavor. I added some chopped onion, celery, and mushrooms because that's what I had around at the time. I think some chopped carrots and corn might be nice next time too. I also omitted the whipped cream because I didn't have any on hand and added 1/4 cup mircle whip instead. I also put in a handful of cheddar cheese and omitted the Parmasan cheese for the topping and added more cheddar. Served it with some corn bread and it was pretty good.
This was yummy!I omitted the whipped topping(I was afraid it would be too sweet)and also the american cheese(not a big fan of it)and it came out great!I doubled the grated parm.I topped it with breadcrumbs and put it under the broiler for 5 minutes. I would make this again.
My husband and I thought this was excellent! We did change it a bit, I used whipping cream instead of coolwhip and cheddar cheese instead of the processed cheese. We also used spinach which was excellent! A great way to use up the leftover chicken from the other day too. We will make again
really really good! My kids hate cassaroles as a rule but they loved this. Like many others I changed the whipped topping & added 1/2 cup mayo & 1/2 cup sour cream instead. Also, I added a package of stuffing mix (made up) as a topping.Made Sept 09
