Hi any substitute of aluminium foil in this recipe? Thanks;)
You can bake in a glass baking pan.
Thanks for this chicken Casserole recipe. I use a lot of chicken meals and always am open to different ingredients used in them. Please post any other ways using rice, noodles etc. You’re the best”
Hi. If I double the recipe would the baking time be different? Thanks!
Should be the same.
Love this recipe, great job! I have made it several times and always delish! I have even switched it up and added mushrooms or green beans and always a hit! Thank you~
Can you put this together and bake a couple hours later?
Can this be altered to use hot sauce or another zesty flavor?
I made this tonight almost exactly as the new directions say. I had baked chicken left over from Sunday dinner so I used cooked chicken instead of raw. I just added the chicken and the rice a little later. It was not too thick at all. In fact just perfect. I love soup. Will be a family favorite.
Thanks for your support!
