Quite happy with this recipe. Gf and I got together to make this dish. We added the flavored ritz, (bacon and garden vegetable) and still came out great. We didnt add as much ritz as we should have, we would probably use 2-3 rolls next time. Added way more lime juice than suggested and some seasoning and also boiled diced carrots.

It's halved this and still had 3 days worth of leftovers, loved it! I used less cheese but still my cheese topped burned. We really liked this casserole and made it 2 weeks in a row with more veggies in it. Especially liked the chicken being cooked before it goes in, 3 minutes on the George foreman and less likely to be undercooked.

Awesome! My kid who hates to eat actually asked for seconds and then I caught him getting thirds! I had to use Town House crackers because I ran of Ritz, but it was good. We add Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning to everything and that added a nice zing.
