These are excellent! You can also follow this same recipe and vary the sandwich filling, using ham and broccoli or grilled cheese instead. I've used many different combinations of fillings, from tuna to hamburger, and they're all great. It's a fun recipe to experiment with!

This recipe has potential. Our family of three considers it a "keeper" so that immediately says it's good. I would consider adding cheese to the chicken before laying the top layer of bread. I will definitely be experiementing with this one. Read More

A more accurate name would be "cheese & chicken bread pudding" because that's what it is. Made the recipe as stated. Did not care for the sogginess nor the bland flavor. Will not make this again. Read More

More preparation than I am used to but this came out very good. My husband probably enjoyed this the most. Both daughters were not happy with the onion but I personally liked this dish as well. Read More

Let me start by saying this was overall a tasty recipe. However it is not a very pretty one. The casserole looks a little yucky. Thankfully I have a family that will taste just about anything. So we were happily suprised that the taste was so good. I wonder if all of the liquid ingredients are necessary. I kept wondering if the eggs were cooked all the way. It's a recipe I'll make again maybe I'll just have to experiment a little bit! Read More

This recipe is wonderful! I used leftover thanksgiving turkey instead of the chicken and it was just great. Called for items I generally always have on hand anyway. Simply great!! Read More

We LOVED this recipe. To make it healthier I used whole wheat bread slices and fat free mayo milk soup and Mozarella cheese. I also added a few splashes of Garlic-flavor Tabasco (will add more next time). A definite keeper! Read More

I run a Family Daycare Home and the children loved it (including me & my parents). The children range from 7 mos. thru 5 yrs and a few are very picky eaters they sure were not picky when it came to this dish. I was a bit concerned with the keeping it over night but it gave the older children and me a project to do at the end of their day and something to look forward to the next day. Read More
