3 stars from me, 4 from my hubby---tasty, good, and would go fast at a potluck, but for the calories there are other casseroles--on this site!--I'd rather have. Pecans are really good on top. Caramelized red onions really add great flavor---i'd do at least 1 large or 2 small/medium because we were wishing for more. I was tempted to add salt to the chicken mixture but after baking with the cheddar (I used sharp, and thyme) it didn't need it.
