    1. It's not going to brown and get toasty in parts like it would in the oven, which is our favorite part

      1. I’m going to try it Jimmy Dean’s Natural sausage tonight because I’m out of bacon. I’ll let u know if it turns out okay

  1. So good! I made a mexi version by adding a tin of sliced jalapeno's, niblet corn, and cooking the chicken in fajita spices.

  2. can you use raw chicken? I have a different recipe that uses raw chicken and it bakes @ 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. I was wondering if you think that would work.

      1. I freeze, thaw and bake. I don’t see the purpose to bake and then freeze since everything is just basically being reheated to begin with.

    1. My daughter used Montreal chicken seasoning for another recipe when this popped up on Facebook. It was great with that.

    1. We use the progresso cream of mushroom because it's gluten free and add chicken bouillon powder in it! Sometimes when I do this I sometimes use cream cheese but since there is door cream in the recipe you don't truly med it.

      If you want the soup to be thicker since it isn't condensed use corn starch or tapioca starch.

    1. You don’t have to. I layer them on top and bake as instructed, followed by a quick broil for crispy tots.

  3. Thank you for the great recipe. I subbed a jar of lite, gluten-free alfredo sauce for the cream of chicken to make mine gluten free. It was seriously delicious!

    1. This is probably a silly question, but does this taste ranch-y? My husband isn't a fan, but if it just tastes seasoned maybe I can sneak it in 🙂

    2. I don't think it tastes Ranchy – it does season it, but there is a lot of other flavors with the chicken, cheese & bacon. I think you could sneak it in.
