Really Smothered Chicken Casserole


A fantastic recipe. The only thing I altered was the amount of salt and cayenne, to suit my own tastes. Otherwise, everyone loved it. I served it with brown rice and green beans. **Update: I’ve made this many times, and it’s versatile as far as the vegetables. Today I put a chopped turnip and some mushrooms in it, just to increase its nutritional value. Very tasty.

Really good! I used just over a pound of chicken breasts cut into strips and went light on the salt, but kept everything else the same. For whatever reason, it took me a lot longer to cook than the time said, but it was worth it in the end. However, I think this would be better with mashed potatoes instead of rice.

Excellent! I didn’t have carrots or celery so I used a can of Veg-All. This was so good, even my 2 year old ate it (he doesn’t eat anything!). So creamy and flavorful and the cayenne pepper gave it just the perfect kick. Thanks for this one, it will be a regular!

Totally FANTASTIC! The only change I made was to reduce the onions to 1 cup. My family loved it!My 7 yr. old came back twice for more rice, chicken & carrots (she loves carrots). This will definately be a recipe we will use often!


Chicken was very tender. I served with mashed potatoes for a easy hearty meal. I did add additional seasonings to taste.

This is absolutely great. Tried it a couple of weeks ago and been thinking about it ever since so I’ll make again tonight. Easy to make and so flavorful.

I was excited to try this recipe. I chopped the onions, celery, and carrots in the food oster. I seasoned the chicken with my usual seasoning…being salt, pepper, garlic powder, parsley, and season all I also use the same seasoning in the flour. Because I like a lot of garlic I put about six cloves of chopped garlic and omitted the caynne pepper due to little ones. Everyone loved it and are ready for left overs. My side dishes were asparagas and ranch style beans. It was just an awesome meal. REAL rich!!!!
