Awesome Casserole. I made this for two different families last week and for ourselves. It got rave reviews, even one 7 year old who doesn't eat anything mixed together! I followed some other reviewers advice and changed it in the following ways: I used 4 boneless skinless breasts and boiled them in plain water. Instead of the homemade broth, I used 1-2 cup chicken broth. I used a Tbsp dried chopped onion instead of onion powder, one can of cream of chicken soup and one can of cream of broccoli. I also added about 2 cups of frozen broccoli florets. I omitted the celery and replaced it with 1/2 tsp celery seed. I varied one batch with jasmine rice instead of plain rice too (it turned out great and gave me an idea for a curry version of this recipe... I will post once I try and figure it out!). This is a great recipe and I will definately make it again, and again (good for potlucks too).
I found this recipe to be somewhat bland and runny. The second time I made it, I added 1/2 cup more rice and a 1/2 cup more homemade chicken stock, changed one can of cream of chicken soup to one can of cream of celery soup, decreased the salt by half but doubled the celery salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder to add flavor. To introduce vegetables into this casserole, add broccoli or peas. HELPFUL HINT: Use rotisserie chicken from your local market on busy nights to speed the process along.
This is pretty good, and my family really enjoys it. I've made it several times because it gets rave reviews. However, I gave it four stars instead of five because I made a few changes. I only use two to three chicken breasts and don't make my own homemade broth. I also use two cups of rice (brown rice, which I cooked in store-bought chicken broth instead of adding broth to the mixture), one can of cream of chicken and one of cream of celery, 1/2 tsp of garlic powder, 1 tablespoon of dried minced onion instead of the onion powder, and I added about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of chopped broccoli. I also mixed a cup of sharp cheddar in with the rest of the ingredients and then topped the whole thing with another cup of cheddar and the crushed crackers. I skipped adding the butter to the crackers. It turned out pretty darn good, and my whole family enjoyed it. It was also pretty easy to make, and is fairly easy to adjust to suit your tastes so I'd definitely recommend it.
Really good comfort food. I followed the recipe. I agree with other reviewers that it needs more rice. I was happy that I was able to freeze some of the chicken broth. Way better than canned!
I took the advice of: irenemua. "I use 2 boneless chicken breasts, 1 can or cream of chicken and 1 can or broccoli and cheese condensed soups, no celery salt, and add in a small bag of defrosted frozen broccoli florets. I also just sprinkle Ritz crackers on top without dredging in butter and sprinkle shredded Cheddar into the mixture before baking. Bravo!" And it was REALLY good.
This is absolutely delicious. Everyone I have ever served it to has loved it.

Absolutely loved it! I did add a second cup of cooked rice and a bit of cheddar cheese on top but other than that, didn't change a thing. Everyone had second helpings - that cracker topping was really good. Not a low fat recipe, but a nice treat every now and then -definitely a keeper!
This recipe was just ok. I will try it again with some modification. I will skip making the stock and just cut up cooked chicken. I will use chicken broth in place of it and cut it down to 1/2c. or less (to runny with 1 c.). It needs some crunch so I will but some celery/onion/almonds to it.
