  • Do you use the wine to saute the Onion and Celery. Did you still use the mixed vegtables. This recipe version sounds very good.

  • Good basic recipe. I made the following changes: Add 1/4 cup dry white wine, start by sauteeing onion and celery then cook chopped chicken fingers and season with rosemary, garlic, oregano, sweet basil and thyme ( or just use premixed "Italian Seasoning"). Also add some parsley to the overall mixture. I added a mix of Asiago Parmesan and Provolone. After it sits in the refrigerator for 8 hours, make and add the topping then place in a cold oven. Set to 350 and let it go for 65 mi

  • This recipe obviously needs seasoning and almost any cheese is better than American but cheddar is the logical choice.

  • I made this and my daughter liked it. Next time I think I'll add chopped onion and more seasoning. It tasted better when I added some Zatarans seasoning. Be sure to thaw the mixed vegetables first. I didn't and the beans were crunchy. I also used Cheddar cheese instead of American. Will make again.
