This recipe is easy and delicious! The changes I made was to leave out the mushrooms substitute cream of chicken instead of the mushroom soup (the BF hates 'shrooms) season the chicken before dicing and add 1 1/2 c. cooked rice to the mixture before baking. The rice made it a more filling meal. Next time I will cut the sliced water chestnuts into smaller pieces. They were a little big.

This recipe tasted like hot mayo with a cracker on top. The directions did not specify whether it should be covered when cooking and did not specify the amount of butter to use.

Just made this tonight and I can't stop eating it. It is great. I did use suggestions of others added a few shakes of basil & parsley also added a shake of garlic salt. Added 1/2 block of low fat cream cheese cut into small pieces and about 3/4 c. shredded cheddar cheese. I didn't have cream of mushroom soup so I used low fat/low sodium cream of celery - taste was great. Also used low fat mayo. Will make this again soon.

This was pretty bland and we were kind of grossed out by the texture of all the water chestnuts. If I were to make it again I'd add sautee'd onions and maybe some garlic sage thyme or something to spice it up.

Delicious! I love this recipe. My grandmother used to make this and I have not had it in years. The only thing I added was salt and pepper. I'm so thankful I found this recipe!! We will be eating it again soon!

I've served this so many times now with rave reviews every time. I changed the topping to crushed soy chips to lower the carbs. I've use canned chicken chunks for a very quick meal in minutes.

My daughter and I really liked this recipe but husband did not. He kept insisting I put nuts in the recipe? (I did not.) I even sauteed the celery first and eliminated the water chestnuts to keep the crunchy taste to a minimum. I have no idea where he was getting the nut thing?? I used onion crackers because that is what I had on hand. I made crescent rolls with it. My daughter loved dipping them into the chicken mixture. Will make again. Thank you.
