    This was wonderful!! I doubled the recipe because I have a large family, and I added the black beans that were suggested. I also used frozen chicken tenders instead of chicken breast. It required an extra bit of baking time, but ooohhh, was it worth the wait! It was awesome! - 7/27/09

    This is a favorite in our house, and it's simple too! This recipe really saves on sodium and fat by not having taco seasoning or cream of chicken soup. YUMMMY!!! - 5/12/09

    Yummm! Thanks! I needed something quick and easy. I added a 1/2 can of black beans and 1/2 can of corn instead of just one can of corn - both were leftovers from a previous meal, so its what I had on hand. Thanks for sharing! - 10/3/10

    This one was GREAT! I love that this is topped with cheese. I have cut way back on the amount of cheese in my diet so this was like a visit from an old friend! Ha! - 10/3/09
