Very filling, easy and a good way to use left-over chicken which we enjoyed. I used cream of mushroom soup and butter but otherwise made as directed with a lot less chicken than indicated. Thanks for sharing!

So very comfy! All the ingredients together created a real perfect blend of flavors creating one beautiful inviting dish...and so tasty! Followed all as directed, except I realized at the last minute that I didn't have a smidgen of crème of tartar, so I had to leave it out, but the biscuits came out nice and tender. Thank you, Luvcookn, for sharing. Made it for Billboard Tag.

I made my own cream of chicken soup to watch the sodium and used shallots instead of leeks. Other than that I made it like the recipe. So so good!

Pure comfort from the oven to the table. My son and I really like it and will have it again, most likely very soon before it gets hot!

The photo got my attention and I knew I had to try this one on for size. It was delicious and my husband made a pig of himself! I guess he just can't help it when it comes to good food. I have to say we will enjoy this many more times we liked it so well!
