When all my kids were at home this was a crowd pleaser for sure. Quick and easy . I could never get away with just 1 pan though not with 4 kids that love to eat.... especially Chicken.
I have made this with different kinds of Creamy soups as well as different kinds of shredded cheese. This can be made with Chicken, Trukey leftovers, Ham and even tried it with hamburger. Lets just say I had no left overs of this dish...

Hi Elaine! I tried this tonight and it is very good! I did not have enough cornflakes so I used crushed up crackers too. We really enjoyed it! :) Christi

What's nice about this recipe is that you can change it any way you want. Cracker for cornflakes, Monterey Jack for Cheddar or even Muenster, different crm soups! Great variety! Thanks for posting, Elaine!

I made this recipe yesterday; very easy to make. I made only 1/2 as I live alone. BIG MISTAKE! I've already eaten all but 2 servings. I've had a problem with solid foods lately and this was just perfect. I love the taste. Some changes I made were adding a can of water chestnuts, whole slices, to add some crunch, using a whole can of cream of mushroom soup rather than 1/2 and 1/2. No sense wasting the other halves.
I also used muenster cheese and topped the cassarole with more chredded muenster mixed with a tablespoon of french bread crumbs. Then I drizzled about a teaspoon of EVOO over it.
I don't think any of that changed the original taste of the cassarole, just enhanced it for my tastes.
Thank you for posting it. Next time I make a full recipe with both soups and prepare some for freezing; otherwise I would eat it all before cooking anything else! LOL

I made this for dinner tonight using chopped ham and Swiss cheese. I didn't have cream of celery soup so I used cream of chicken along with the cream of mushroom. I thought it was very good, but seemed to be missing something...maybe some herbs or something. Next time I will try the cream of celery soup. Maybe I should have mixed in a little celery seed for some added flavor since I didn't have the soup. Definitely a keeper, but will continue to experiment with different combinations of ingredients.

I want to try this recipe but I don't like store bought chicken tenders so how many if I make my own.

I just made this tonight and mines was a little bland when it came to the flavor. Not sure if I added too much frozen hash browns since the bag I bought wasnt measured and I guesstimated the chicken amount since I already had a large (drumstick size package) in the fridge. If I make this again I'll probably add a little Mrs. Dash or other seasoning. Could also be my bad sinus issues thats also known to kill my taste buds. In any case...thanks for sharing Elaine. Love, Gina

I used cream of chicken soup due to family preferences, a little paprika and chile powder and topped it with crushed Doritos, yum.
