Hot Chicken and Chips Retro

    One of the few Cooking Light recipes that I wouldn't eat the leftovers. It was definitely sour, as the last review says. The bell peppers and water chestnuts seemed out of place. Just not a good one...

    Very tasty and my kids actually liked it (all except my super picky one). Didn't have four cups of chicken, so I added whole wheat egg noodles. Also left out the lemon. Took longer than 13 minutes to become bubbly though. Next time I'll cover and cook until bubbly, then uncover, top with cheese and chips, and brown to finish.

    My husband and I really enjoyed this dish. I used a whole rotisserie chicken (with skin removed) instead of the 4 chicken breasts. I also added a little more green onion and red pepper to the mixture (just chopped up what I had). I thought the dish was delicious and worked really well serving it with a soup or a salad.

    I read the previous reviews for this recipe before I made the following adjustments to the recipe and served it : 1) substituted chopped artichokes (marinated in oil, drained) for the water chestnuts 2) used 1/3 cup mayonnaise and 1/3 cup sour cream 3) 1 TBSP fresh lemon jc not 2 TBSP 4) added 1 tsp honey 5) used sour cream/onion chips for topping. Husband, who is not a chicken fan, asked me not to throw the left-overs away ... yeah he liked it. I will serve it again. EASY to prepare. I used a supermarket pre-prepared rotisserie chicken that I skinned, de-boned and chopped.

    Sorry, but this was gross. Similar to other reviews, I found this to have a sour taste, even after cutting back on the mayo. I added some rice to give it more substance, but that didn't help either. Won't be making again.

    Good recipe, made it 2 times and enjoyed it both times.

    Hot chicken salad is what this tasted like. If you like mayo you will probably enjoy this recipe. We however did not. I think with cream of chicken soup instead of mayo it would be much better. I also substituted corn for water chestnuts. I am deleting this one from my saved recipes.

    I love this dish! I "cheat" and buy a rotisserie chicken from the supermarket and pull off the meat so it's obviously a little higher in fat due to the dark meat (I don't use the skin) but it's SUPER easy. I also skip the red pepper (just prefer it raw versus cooked and don't miss it in the dish). The finished product is so creamy and tangy. I feel like I'm spoiling myself! I've brought it to a potluck and it was a hit! (You can always tell by an empty serving dish at midway through a potluck)

    I enjoyed this recipe, but I would cut down on the chestnuts a little next time. For being healthy I thought this was a good recipe, but my husband didn't enjoy it.

    I made this dish last night and my boyfriend really liked it and told me i had to make it again

    This was actually really good! We used Celery instead of Water Chesnuts because I read a review that it tasted too crunchy, like salad. So we thought celery would be a lighter "crunch" substitute. We also only had regular Hellman's Mayo....oops! But that made a huge difference! I would definitely make this again! No complaints from the entire family!

    Followed advice and 1 Tbsp of lemon juice and celery instead of water chestnuts. That made this a hit with the whole family, good leftovers too.
