    Used a smaller casserole dish to layer. Also, did the following: water sautéed the onion and bell pepper; used an organic roasted chicken (this gave it additional flavor and saved on prep time) used organic ingredients-Muir Glen tomatoes with green chilies. Variations: you can add fresh spinach or corn with onion and pepper sauté. My family loves this dish!

    Fantastic! Always a crowd pleaser! I also double the recipe and get two yummy layers. I use more cheese also. I boil the chicken ahead of time a lot of times and freeze extra chicken for other recipes. I also use frozen diced green peppers and onions, this also reduces prep time. This enables me to make this recipe on a week night for my family instead of just for special occasions!

    The measurement for cheese is a dry measurement, not a liquid measurement. On the 8oz package of shredded cheese it states that it is 2 cups.

    So delicious, It didn't even make it to a plate! My children are very picky and they loved this so much that they asked for me to make it again! I added chili powder, and used parmesean cheese in replace of the cheddar cheese. Definitely a hit in our household!

    March 18, 2016 on the shredded cheese part you put 2 cups=8 oz. that's incorrect. 1cup=8 oz. does it not?
