Everyone in my family absolutely loves this recipe! I get rave reviews every time I make it and it's always the first thing to go. I usually make it in a slow cooker though. Couldn't bring myself to use the microwave! I don't change much in the recipe except I used white rice instead of wild. I also skip the onions when I use the slow cooker (they'd be soggy). When I bake it in the oven though the onions are PERFECT in this recipe. Read More

I tampered with the recipe a bit. I added chicken and used real cheese and a can of milk. I cooked my chicken with pepper and garlic salt and a hint of freshly squeezed lemon. I also baked on 350 for 45 mins. It's delicious. Read More

Great recipe! My son doesn't like onions or french fried onions so I sprinkled bacon bits on top instead. He LOVES bacon so it was an instant hit...thanks! Read More

Excellent - used what I had on hand (white rice instead of wild breadcrumbs instead of onion rings). Baked in the oven at 350 for about 45 minutes. (Added about a half a can of milk because I was worried it would dry out.) Was devoured by my husband children and grandchild. Don't be afraid to use more broccoli than called for to yummily sneak even more veggies into your diet. Good stuff. Read More

I did make a couple of changes just because I wanted to use what I had on hand. I used cream of celery soup instead of chicken. I used white rice and left out the celery. I cooked the onions most of the way before adding to the rest of the ingredients. I also baked it in the oven as well. I baked the majority of the time covered and then un-covered and added the french fried onions for a few more minutes at the end. I usually try not to make so many changes when I first try a recipe but I really don't think they would have changed the overall flavor. Tasty! Read More

This isn't a bad recipe but it would work much better with a couple of tweeks. Do yourself a favor and use high quality cheese. Any low quality processed cheese just isn't going to give you as delicious a casserole as a high quality cheese would. I did follow the recipe by cooking it in the microwave but I believe I will either use the oven or stovetop next time. I like the idea of just popping something in the microwave but the microwave has a tendency to render things stringy and rubbery so I think I could get a smoother casserole in the oven. In general I did enjoy this recipe though and I will make it again I'll just change up those two things. Read More
