Tried and Tested

I have a similar recipe which I have served my family for years but it calls for turkey instead of chicken. I guess it is a tried and tested recipe and it always turns out great. I usually add a cup of sliced sauteed mushrooms to the dish. I also add a dash of salt on top after baking to bring out the favor.

When I first looked at the picture I thought yuck! because I thought it contained peas. After reading the ingredients I tried this and it was wonderful. I learned a new lesson.

The kids liked it too!

This was pretty simple put together. I would have added a little more seasoning, but otherwise tasty. My kids like vegetables so they enjoyed very much.

I thought this recipe was pretty good. Made great leftovers! I'd def. listen to some of the other reviews who suggested adding chicken broth (i accidently added a can of water as well) instead of subsituteing it. Still came out great! Also added a little parm cheese, onion powder, & lil. more garlic powder & cheddar cheese & mixed it in. Since other reviews said they thought it didnt have much taste. After all that i thought it was perfectly creamy & had a great taste! Enjoy!
