Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I made this with the mushroom soup as I didn't have chicken soup. I did put cheddar cheese on top and broiled it. It was very delicious.

This is similar to Shepherd's Pie. I top with shredded cheese and french fried onions, then return to oven for 5-10 mins.

I made this last night. It was so easy and economical. My family likes it and all I did was add some garlic bread to make this a complete meal. I didn't change a thing and will make this many time more.

Basically my recipe for my "Comfort Chicken" except everything is fresh and I use my broth (gravy) from the chicken that I have baked and made from the drippings. This is, however, a great meal for those in a hurry or on the go.

I think I would rather have the potatoes on the bottom.

After putting potatoes on top I would put in oven to brown like double baked potatoes.Let you know how it turns out..

I have substituted ground beef for the chicken in this recipe and cream of mushroom soup for the cream of chicken soup - is delicious!

Creative - but then what do you call it? Recipes are just a starting point to go from, and you did it well.

Silky flavorable!
