Chicken Noodle Casserole I
DISCLAIMER: I'm rating this as a base recipe to which additional ingredients can be included. I try my best to rate recipes on this site as they are stated but now and again this type of recipe comes across my radar and I recognize it as a good basic idea that I can add to for my particular tastes. That said, I chose to use 1 can of cream of mushroom soup and 1 can of cream of celery. I included some sauteed chopped celery and onion, dried sage and thyme and frozen baby peas. I didn't thaw the peas first, just stirred them into the rest of the mixture before baking. Additionally, I used leftover rotisserie chicken that I chopped into bite-sized pieces -- very flavorful! This casserole is definitely right up there in the top 10 list of comfort food dishes! I highly recommend this recipe as a jumping off point. Add your favorite veggies & seasonings and make it your own!

Chicken and Fresh Tomato Slow Cooker Stew
I try my very best to prepare the recipes from this site exactly as written because, from my understanding, that's what ratings are for -- to let each of us know exactly how good each recipe truly is as it is written. With that said, I did prepare this one as written and I feel I'm being generous in giving it 3 stars. The only reason I gave as many as 3 is that I can see that with some modifications this can be a truly excellent dish! My slow cooker needed no additional liquid added to keep the chicken covered during the entire 8 hours, thankfully. The resulting broth was thin and quite tasteless. Before making this I had the feeling that it was going to be quite bland -- and I was right. It had very little flavor. I do love the combination of vegetables and chicken but the sauce/broth needed a LOT of help. I won't use Italian seasoning in this when I make it again, but will substitute thyme and will also add other seasonings such as garlic powder or garlic salt, etc. I admit that once the cooking was done and I had sampled some of the broth, I did add a little sugar to brighten up the bland tomato flavor and threw in some garlic salt as well. Since I was making this to put up as freezer meals, I let it sit in a large bowl in the fridge overnight before dividing and freezing in portions. I decided to give it a taste the next morning beforehand and it was delicious and flavorful with the sugar & garlic salt having been added. So DO make this stew but do your own doctoring

The Best Parmesan Chicken Bake
Prepared this to the exact recipe as stated and maybe it's just me and my taste buds but I wasn't impressed at all. I didn't enjoy the flavor and the chicken itself seemed slightly rubbery. I'm an experienced cook so I know it wasn't about not cooking it long enough. My husband actually liked it but, for me, this recipe isn't good enough for an encore. Wish I could give it a higher rating, I really do! Maybe I'm just more of a traditionalist when it comes to Chicken Parmesan.
