Avoid the almonds at all cost they just burn and taste horrible with the casserole but it's just my opinion..

Spencer Borrmann

Not a huge fan of this I much prefer the croque monsieur casserole, way different texture but this is a family favorite so it's still number 2.

Anne Rolader

Needed more than half an onion and also used himalayan salt instead o kosher.

Patience Ginart

Almonds in this was a great idea it was crunchy and just perfect texture in my opinion.

Kynlee Glatter

Brought this to family Friday and everyone stole the recipe and booked the page haha.

Emi Nawrot

The smoked paprika and sweet potatoes blend in really well and make the flavourful unbelievebly good.

Jacquelyn Cuomo

Bookmarked this page I love everything on it and it's so easy to follow the steps :)

Andie Sturza

Can't believe it's so easy to make this going to be making this a lot more often and maybe mixing up the ingridents a bit.

Joelle Zanis

I made this for dinner for me and the hubby along with some wine and then we had bailys cake with berries for desert it was gooood.

Pyper Albakri

This and the Korean chicken wings are the BOMB absolutely loved it.

Maryam Tennesen

Chicken turned out kinda dry for me so I'm not a huge fan of baking it but I loved the flavor so I'll find a way around.

Dayanna Baglieri

Kids really enjoyed this surprisingly despite all the healthy and nutritious stuff in it haha.

Ailani Zenker

I used normal brown rice instead of wild rice and then added some corn too this was really good.

Laney Wiedmer

Normal potatoes sounded better than sweet so I used those instead and once it was done I tossed some sourcream on the top and bacon bits-- baked to perfection i'd say!

Seraphina Skowronski

Had the left overs for work today and everyone wanted to know what this was and how I made it, tasted great even cold!

Tossed in a few sundried tomatos soaked in oil to this harvest chicken casserole, it went together quite well, brilliant dish for sure.
