Do you mix soup acordenly to can with a can of water before adding mayo and cheese. Or just pour out of can??

Utterly fantastic!

I've made this dish several times, and I've been steadily tweaking it to turn it into a main dish. I've added two cups of white rice (the measurement 2 in my rice cooker measuring cup) and a can of chicken, sauteed in spices of choice before being put in the dish. It's always a huge hit!

Great recipe. A huge hit, but I tweaked it, so it's a main meal:  -2 packages of frozen steamed broccoli-2 packages of chicken breast tenders cut into small pieces (cook before combining)-1 can cream of chicken soup-2 large eggs, lightly beaten-1 cup mayonnaise-2 packages of Cheddar cheese-2 packages of white steamed rice-2 sleeves Ritz crackers, crushed Combine all, except 1/2 packet of cheese, sprinkle 1/2 packet of cheese  on top, and then sprinkle the Ritz Crackers on the very very top, and then bake for 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

I found this on Pinterest, came here for the recipe, and took it to a Christmas potluck. I made a few changes to adapt to what I had on hand: light mayo, cream of chicken soup, 2 bags frozen chopped broccoli (steamed in microwave), less butter, and only half a sleeve of Ritz. Very good!

This is one of my husband's favorite to make - except he uses cheddar cheese soup instead of cream of mushroom, and no mayo. It is a great go-to for big dinners.
