  1. Recipe on tasty kitchen calls for half the butter (4 tbsp) as opposed to your 8 tbsp. Is that a misprint or is it actually that much butter? I just made it and it seemed like a lot of butter so wanted to double check. Thanks!

  2. Could you add noodles to this to stretch the number of servings? Or maybe rice? I’m thinking this would be great for a family get together but could be a little expensive for our large family.

  3. I have made this before and it’s great but I served noodles on the side. I like the idea of noodles in the bottom only should they be cooked or raw?

  4. This looks so good, but i only have swiss cheese that i would need to grate. Do you have any idean how much that would be? Thanks.

  5. *I love the concept of this recipe, but next time, I will not use Honey Ham…its too sweet of a casserole for me.
    *I also think the ham I used made it watery when the water cooked out of the ham…I may pre-cook the ham next time.
    *45 mins. bake time made the already cooked chicken mushy…maybe just 20 mins.
    *I think I would make less sauce, OR, layer some on the chicken, some on the ham and then bake it without the crumbs as they too were mushy in places…maybe put the crumbs on during the last 10 mins.
