This receipe has a lot of potential. I took everyone's suggestions and added a few things in myself to make this recipe pretty good. Here's how to make this recipe good: -Substitute cream cheese for whipped topping. -Melt cream cheese together with 1/2 c. sharp white cheddar and 1/2 c. mild yellow cheese. Add this melted mixture to the other ingredients after they are mixed. -Stick to the cream of mushroom. -Add a diced onion that has been cooked a little (I boiled it with my chicken strips to make both really tender). -Lots of salt, pepper and milk. -It could stand to bake for less time. -I added parmesean and breadcrumbs to the top before baking. I hope these suggestions help!


This recipe was okay; however, I would ommit the whipped topping. It gave it a very odd flavor that just got sickining after a while. Someone asked what that flavor was and I told them the whipped topping and they were quite surprised that I put whipped topping in a chicken casserole. I would use cream of chicken instead of mushroom unless you're really crazy about the cream of mushroom flavor. Also, a package of frozen peas with carrot would really brighten this up. Also, I cubed my chicken for easy bites. Good recipe ideal, but just needed some fine tuning.


This was just so-so. We did not care for the cool whip flavor in it. I make a chicken and noodles and tuna and noodles identical to this without the whipped topping and we like that much better. I thought the kids would enjoy eating whipped cream in their dinner but boy was I wrong.
