Check out what our friends from My Recipes have to say about this casserole dish:

“This is such a great comfort food casserole and super easy for me to put together since I already had the leftover corn muffins and chicken. I omitted the canned mushrooms though because I was not in the mood for them and I added some fresh green onions. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. It was a little dry but I liked it like that. The bottom layer gets nice and moist, while the top gets a little crispy. I am going to share this with my grandma to have for her weekly dinner get togethers with friends. I think she will love it.”
