This was a decent recipe. Not enough rice. I added a full cup more. Also for kick I added a tsp of mustard powder dill and garlic powder. Would have again. VERY easy to make low-fat/lo-cal by using no-fat mayo/miracle whip reduced fat cream of chicken soup and the fat-free Wow! potato chips. I've tasted both versions and they are identical! Read More

I've made this recipe for years but always called it Baked Chicken Salad. To give it great flavor and keep the chicken moist I buy a cooked roasted chicken from the grocery store and take the meat from it for the recipe (Sam's Wholesale Club in my town has the most meaty and jucy roasted chickens I've ever eaten).

I made a few changes to the recipe like broccoli instead of water chestnuts and cream of celery soup instead of mayo. I also added some white cooking wine(just a splash) garlic powder and sauted onion. It was a hit! Two teens and a husband whose mom is an awesome cook ate it up. Only enough leftovers for his lunch the next day. Great recipe! Read More

I substitute waterchestnuts with hardboiled egg sliced and I clean up the fridge using old mushrooms and green onions in this as well. Delicious and good to freeze and serve. A family favorite I can't get enough of it. One of the few things where the leftovers don't sit around! Read More

Holy moly. It may be tasty but recipes has Way too much fat! Cheese mayonnaise AND deep-fried potato chips in one dish? I do like the option that some people show of not using the mayo. It helps a little at least. Read More

O.K. so even tho I added extras to make this dish more flavorable I'm still giving it a four because a three really sounds like it's garbage and the recipe really had good bones. I used two cans of soup (mushroom and celery) added a lot more seasonings and because I had leftover chicken marsala from our party I used that with some of the sauce. That alone added a ton of flavor. Used a garlic cheddar leftover chips and leftover fried onions for the top. I don't even like rice yet I and my family really loved this. Daughter Ashley's boyfriend went back three times to pile up his plate. Again Paula this was great but it I felt it did need a little extra umph. Thanks! Read More

Easy & a bit different. Overall not a bad recipe but it could use a little more flavour. I added some cayenne & tabasco for a little more kick. Will try it again but make some adjustments. Thanks! Read More
