Texture is bland. Flavor is bland. Aroma is bland. What's to savor and enjoy? With so many delicious choices available, why bother with something so nondescript? It reads better than its reality.

My husband made this for me for my birthday dinner. It was so good. Perfect just as written. Can hardly wait to try some of the other chicken casserole recipes you have sent me. Thanks for great recipes:)

This looks amazing! I love any sort of lasagna that doesn't use tomato sauce (gives me heartburn) and I especially love portabello mushrooms. I got a coupon for the shredded cheese from too.

Ughh this was soooo cheesy and thick and gooey. I should have looked to see where this recipe came from before I tried it. Had I noticed it was a Southern Living recipe, I would have likely skipped it. BUT! I will make it again -- I will definitely halve the cheese (or even less), double the chicken, double the mushrooms and perhaps add some other veggies. I think broccoli would work well in this dish. Made as the recipe outlines, I cannot recommend it; this is mostly goop with not enough solid ingredients. Perhaps with some amendments, it can be tasty. NUTRITION INFO: someone complained there isn't any nutrition information for this recipe. I agree -- that doesn't work for me either. I input the recipe into MyFitnessPal and came up with 524 calories (as is) per serving (1/6 of the pan).

Added 1/2 onion and two cloves crushed garlic to the saute step. Also added crushed red pepper flakes when adding the salt/pepper. With these changes, it had a good rich flavor.

I cannot believe there is no nutritional information on this dish.
