    Tried and Tested

    N. Chapman from Yorba Linda

    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.

    mistake

    m husser from

    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!

    debbie mitchell from MI

    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.

    Yummy..

    Sara-Ann D from ,

    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!

    Oh So Yummy!

    Stephanie Marshik from , MN

    This was a winner! Everybody liked it and even the leftovers were fabulous! I made 2 substitutions. I used a fresh broccoli medley and precooked it 8 min. on high in microwave before adding. I also used precooked regular white rice and left top off while cooking. Alternatively, I would recommend precooking rice with 1/3 cup less water. When most of water is absorbed, cover and take off heat. Let the rice absorb the rest while you get other ingredients together.

    Creamy Chicken and Rice Bake

    kellie jones from Nacogdoches Tx

    This last month I went into the grocery store to look for something I could prepare for my family that was quick and satisfying. I happened to stumble across this wonderful recipe and I knew then that the Creamy Chicken and Rice Bake was the one. I prepared it that night and my family and I fell in love with the rich and creamy chicken casserole. I have made it a few times since then and I still crave for more. Thank you Carnation for the excellent recipe. I will be making this dish for sure in the future!!

    Wasn't crazy about it

    Janice Farnsworth from Jacksonville, FL

    This recipe didn't please anyone in my brood...in fact the whole pan got tossed out. It was wayyy too rich (I think) for our tastes but I'm not beyond saying I messed up somewhere because it certainly didn't come out like the picture shows! Always nice to try something new anyway...it's like pulling teeth in my house to get anyone to eat a variety but I try :)

    Eileen Sharp from Coventry, RI

    This was so easy to put together and bake I wasn't sure if it would taste OK. But it was awesome!!! I had to change the veggies to use what was on hand, but it didn't seem to make any diffence. You should try it!

    Average recipe

    Liz Wiewiora from Highland, MI

    This recipe could use more flavor, and the rice ended up overcooked with a mushy consistency.

    Creamy Chicken and Rice Bake

    PATTI BURGESS from Caribou, ME

    This is truly a comfort food! I altered the recipe just a bit. I used a creamy Canadian pea soup instead of the creamy chicken. It was a hit at the supper table!

    VERY TASTY

    TRIED THIS AND IT WAS VERY EASY TO MAKE.WILL MAKE IT AGAIN.

    Too bland for my taste

    Brenda Martin from Champlin, MN

    Think you could use more spice in this one and was a little dry too.

  •  Star(s)

    Disappointing

    LYNN BORG from Encinitas, CA

    Not what I expected, fairly simple to make but was dry and had very little flavor. Adding a can of chicken broth to this recipe may have helped with dryness and flavor. Glad I made it for home instead of a pot luck to try out!

    this was pretty good, I even had it again for the next day supper also.

    Disappointing

    Mary M from TEWKSBURY, MA

    This was very easy to make but lacked flavor and was very dry. My husband never complains about anything I make but was not impressed with this dish.

    Quick and Easy

    Dawn Gresham from APO, AE

    This recipe is great when you're working late. If you have all the ingredients on hand it takes no time at all. And my family really likes it! I might try putting it into a pie crust next instead of using rice. Yum.

    A new family favorite for a cold winter's dinner

    penney ippen from MUSKEGON, MI

    I changed the recipe just a little, I add more cream cheese, and more chicken (2.5 to 3 cups)and cheese too. I add the rice to the mix and stir the rice in, for me it seems to help the rice cook better. This is one dish that I know I can make and not have to worry about what to do with the leftovers--there never is any thing left!

  •  Star(s)

    Very Tasty

    Deborah Herman from Lakewood, CO

    I had leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. My husband is a big fan of turkey pot pie, so he like this fairly well. I used Colbyjack as it was handy. I like the idea of useing up bits and pieces in the frig. and still make a good tasting dish.

    Mom who cooks ALOT

    Robyn from MO

    I love this recipie just the way it is, but I have made alterations to make it a tad healthier. I use light cream cheese and fat free Carnation evaported milk to cut the calories. I also use instant brown rice instead of white rice cause brown is healthier, and it still comes out GREAT! This recipie is now in my meal rotation, and it goes with me to parties and events. It never lasts long!

    Mom who cooks ALOT!

    Robyn from MO

    I made this recipe last night and WOW! Very YUMMY! I was afraid the rice would not cook, but it did very nicely. I used boil in a bag instant brown rice, and it worked! Next time, I will omit the water and add chicken broth instead to give it a more chicken flavor. My family loved this dish! I recommend it highly!

    Quick and Covenient!

    Billie Schleifer from Round Hill, VA

    My son is one of those boys who can eat 24 hours a day and never gain a pound. I try to keep a casserole in the regrigerator at all times so he always has something nutritious to eat. He really loved this one - naturally he puts more cheese on top when he heats up a serving!

    Creamy chicken and rice bake

    F. Blankenship from GLASGOW, VA

    We enjoyed this very much, very easy to fix. I failed to notice the cream cheese was for a 3oz. size. i used the 8oz size but it did not affect the taste that much. My daughter came by and loved this dish. she took half of it home with her.

    Lisa Bates from BANKS, OR

    I've made this recipe a few times, with a substitution here and there... canned diced green chiles instead of jalepenos, and cheddar instead of monterey jack. Everyone in the family eats it (including my 2 year old!

    Creamy Cheesy Chicken and Rice

    Marcia Hyde from PINSON, AL

    I loved this recipe the first time I made it and used converted brown rice. Then I next made two at once to take to friend's since it is easy, cheesy, and most everyone likes chicken and rice; and it is creamy with the condensed milk and cheeses and even using brown rice and less chicken with the frozen veggies it still comes out so very good. In the South rice and cheese are crowd pleaers. For my double dish take overs I substitued turkey from parts I bought and cooked separately. It made it less easy but still as good and converted brown rice is light and cooks more quickly and with a bit extra liquid and a time to sit coverd hot and "cook" off heat to make the rice finish covered after baking time ends. This is powefully nutritious with brown rice, condensed milk and cheese, and carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower. That's one thing I try to experiement with is adding more nutrients and antioxidants and good oils by throwing in a small amounts of finely chopped nuts or freshly ground

    Delicious Casserole!!!

    Karen Farthing from EL DORADO, KS

    This dish is the BEST casserole I've made for a long time! I used 1/4 cup LESS rice than the recipe called for and it turned out WONDERFUL!

    Leigh Anne from Amarillo, Tx

    This is good. I added onions to the mix and sprinkled hot green chili on top before the cheese. Next time I will add most of the cheese to the mix for more flavor throughout.

    Family Pleaser

    MARTHA MARQUES from VICTORIA, TX

    This was an easy Casserole to make. My family loved this and didn't comment about the veggies. My husband loved the fact it had two types of cheese. I omitted the pepper, my family has a low tolerance to spicy foods. I substituted instant brown rice in mine.
