    It was great. I added chopped onion, garlic and of course shredded cheese and served over noodles
    I have made this twice so far. My family keeps begging for more. Def a must try!

    fantastic comfort food, add in different spices, and vegetables to change it up and add more flavor.

    Very good and great casserole base. I added Thyme, Paprika, Marjoram and onion powder to cream sauce. I used Panko, Poppyseeds, Chives in topping and sprinkled with Smoked Paprika. Served with rice made with chicken broth from poaching chicken. I make new recipes close to original recipe first then make them more my own. Next time I want to add asparagus or mixed Vegetables as suggested. Would be a nice topping for Biscuits or Dumplings instead of rice. A comfort food, for sure!

    Good. I added an onion layer. Also added fresh thyme leaves, garlic powder and paprika.

    My husband absolutely loves this dish. It turned out runny each time I made it but still very good

    So good. We didn't make it with poppy seed because I have a picky eater but she approves this recipe. Defjjitely saving this so we can make it again.

    Love this recipe! The only thing I did different was to eliminate the poppy seeds and use fully cooked diced chicken. The first time I made it I served it over egg noodles. It was delicious. This time I’m serving it over rice. I’ll definitely make this again. It’s a hit every time!

    Added mushrooms and a little cheddar for some extra texture and complexity. Substituted Greek yogurt for sour cream. Very solid. Definitely making again.
