  4. Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is bubbling and topping is crisp, about 45 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • I used Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds® cereal instead of cornflakes. I also tripled the chopped celery instead of using a can of water chestnuts. I used reduced fat cream of chicken soup and Hellman's® lowfat mayo. I used leftover chicken from a rotisserie I had purchased earlier in the week. Delicious!
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

This was a good basic chicken casserole. Easy to make, I did not make any changes, but would try it in the future with some vegetables, such as broccoli, or asparagus.

good recipe I made it according to the recipe except I used cream of mushroom with garlic, diced water chestnuts and less onion(2 TBS). Great for using ingredients that are always on hand. Not ...

I will definitely make it again. This time I made a half recipe for my elderly mother and her sitter. They enjoyed it very much. I will add water chestnuts next time.

I thought this was very good. The only changes I made was to add a bag of frozen broccoli. I will make this again!
