This recipe was really yummy!! I had to change a couple things but it wasn't too drastic...I didn't have any texmati rice so I just used plain white rice (didn't have the extra flavor the recipe called for but in my opinion didn't really need it...I will try that next time though) and instead of cheddar I used mozzarella (my favorite). It turned out wonderful! My fiance really enjoyed it but lathered it with garlic powder (it's what he does with everything though so I wasn't insulted). :) Thanks for the excellent recipe!!!

We used leftover turkey to make this. It was a very quick meal but pretty bland. I did sub some cooked broccoli instead of the mushrooms because that is what I had on hand. Overall, average for us.

VERY TASTY MEAL. I USED BASMATI RICE WHICH IS I THINK BETTER THAN TEXMAI RICE, THE AMERICAN COUNTER PART. ADD A LITTLE GARLIC AND BROCCHLI AND YOU ARE IN BUSINESS. TOASTED BREAD CRUMBS ON TOP ARE ALSO A HIT WITH MY FAMILY!

This recipe turned out really good! I was skeptical after making the rice because it didn't look like enough at all, but it turned out perfect! I followed the recipe listed, but I made some additions: I added half a box of frozen peas, half a box of frozen broccoli florets (I'm pregnant and wanted to bump up the veggies), I added 1 cup of cheese to the veggie/chicken mix itself, then topped it with 1 cup before baking. Came out awesome! I think next time I'll leave out the fresh mushrooms, but that's just a personal preference. I also baked it for 30 mins covered, then removed the foil and let it go another 10 minutes so the cheese was gooey. The gravy mix reminded me of a chicken pot pie and being that it set up really well (not watery) I think I may play around with that idea next time. All in all, great recipe!

i loved this recipe and so did my family. i did put my own twist on it. i used 1c milk & 1c chicken broth instead of bullillon cubes. chopped and sauteed celery, carrots, & onions. mixed sauce, chicken, & veggies together. and topped with cheese cubes & buttered bread crumbs. i didn't use mushrooms. reminded me of chicken pot pie. GREAT COMFORT FOOD!!! will use again & again!!!

This was easy to make and very good! I made a few changes to my personal taste and what I had on hand. I used jasmine rice, 1 1/2 c cheese(because cheese is good), 1 1/2 c brocolli and 1 c mushrooms. I added dry bread crumbs in the last 5 mins also. My boyfriend was suprised it turned out because the sauce was so full of vegetables and chicken, but it was delicious! I will definately make this again - its quick, easy and tasty.

We loved this recipe! I did tweak a little but it was just a little onion and celery with the butter & flour. I also added a little broccoli b/c my kids always need extra green veggies :-)
