    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a 2-litre baking dish.

    This was easy and delicious! I substituted grated cheddar cheese for the processed cheese.  -  01 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe calls for 6 boneless/skinless chicken breasts. The ones I had were ENORMOUS, so I sliced 3 in half. They barely fit into the casserole dish (overlapping). I used olive oil to brown the chicken and used fresh mushrooms instead of canned, but otherwise followed the recipe as written. My chicken was done in about an hour.  -  27 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was awesome. I was worried after adding the Worcestershire, but I shouldn't have worried at all. The flavor was amazing. I doubled the recipe (including the sauce), but really didn't need to double the sauce itself. I didn't have two cans of cream of mushroom, so I used chicken and mushroom, and I was short sour cream, but I added a little more cheese. Yum! Even my picky (and I mean extremely picky) husband ate two servings! Thank you for sharing.  -  04 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
