    United States I substituted the Greek yogurt with sour cream. I added 1/4 c minced onion and celery. I also folded Ina cup of frozen peas and carrots. Followed all the rest of the ingredients and baked as recommended. Turned out well.served with buttermilk biscuits.

    thank god people put reviews and i read them before making this. totally agree it would b bland if u didnt add a little something more. i cooked my chicken in the instant pot with whole garlic cloves, italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, and S&P. i didnt use as much mayo but did mix up the cheese, i used cream cheese, mozz and parm, then put the chicken over mashed potatoes. i think it was fantastic and would make an awesome pasta! i will make it again!

    Turned out ok, very very bland. If I make this again I'll be trying some modifications (like cheddar and hot sauce, or perhaps some more spices)

    Amazing!! Husband loved it. Added 1/2 red onion, mozzarella cheese in replace of Parmesan, about a T of ranch, sprinkle of salt, more garlic powder and dash of chili powder for a kick. Added this into hard shell taco with chopped green onions. Yum!

    it was easy, quick, and cooked the right way in a round pan; BUT, I think there was too much mayo and it over powered the casserole. my suggestion is to use more seasoning so it stays creamy.

    Not too bad. It didn't need as much mayo as it asked for, but other than that it came out perfect!

    Well it was a fly by the seat of my pants, use what I have kinda night. So I used two 12.5 oz cans of chicken with the juice.... I added the rest of ingredients plus 1/16 tsp cheyanne, 1 tsp dried parsley, 2 chicken bullion cubes, 1 Tbsp Bruchetta seasoning and 1/4 cup chopped onions. Because I used the juice in the can, it was a bit liquid so I made some low carb stuffing and put it in a 13x9 baking dish, tossed a couple cups of frozen peas over the top and poured the chicken mix over it. Rice or noodles would also work. Then topped it with shredded Jack cheese instead of parmesan basically because I only had the dry grated kind that wouldn't make as nice a topping, and cooked it at 350 for 30 minutes. Since it made 8 servings I have enough for another night!

    It was good but in not a fan of the taste of mayonnaise so Il substitute for sour cream next time. I added shredded carrots and celery for a taste . When not for my kids, some crushed red pepper. I ate this with bread and some tomatoe soup .

    Really easy to make and really tasty. I think I would enjoy it a litte more with added celery for the crunch and in order to have vegetables incorporated.

    I didn't modify this recipe but if i were to make it again I'd add more yogurt and mayo. It was just slightly dry. My kids loved it.

    Delish! Served with Basmati rice. Kind of cheated too. Knocked down prep time: I purchased cooked chicken found in deli section. The all white meat breast meat cut. 5 minutes to make - no joke.
