Didn't like this dish at all. It sounded great, but the taste was not to my liking. I even tried adding cheese on top. Sorry!

This was a fabulous recipe! My family and staff at work loved it. I added white wine when cooking the chicken. I also added some swiss cheese to the casserole before baking. It came out grea...

This recipe was a hit. I don't understand those who said this dish did not have enough flavor. They must have used old spices. I too used chicken broth instead of bullion. I also added a tsp...

I liked this, and I was very sceptical of the cottage cheese, but it turned out really well. I used chicken broth instead of water in addition to the bullion cubes, so the rice had a good flavo...

This was a great casserole. It was very flavorful and also filling. I didn't have Parmesan cheese, so I sprinkled it with feta during the last 15 minutes of baking. Yum! By the way, it would...

This is a really simple, good recipe that can be altered to taste, which is something I really like. I didn't have enough spinach the first time, so I used half spinach and half broccoli. I also...

This was a good, healthier casserole option. I did a couple things differently based on the things I had. I used regular brown rice and cooked it according to the package. I also used fresh spin...
