We made a couple of changes and tried to halve the recipe. We did use cooked chicken and we (accidentally) used sour cream instead of mayo. Not only was the dish delicious, but it is a great recipe for left over chicken. 5 stars!

Hi crazy mama, No, the chicken is not cooked when you mix with the rest of the ingredients. I think whatever size casserole dish you have at home would be just fine. Let us know how it turns out! --Editor of RecipeLion

Need information a.s.a.p. 1. Is the chicken cooked before mixing w/the rest of the ingredients? 2. What constitutes a large casserole? 3 qt. or 9 x 13 or lazagna pan?

would like to see some reviews on this recipe
