Sorry, didn't like this one. The flavour from the chicken soup was too dominant and we didn't enjoy it at all.

Yummy! I used Sage and Onion stuffing mix instead of breadcrumbs and it was really nice. I sprinkled a little cheese after laying the potatoes. I didn't use the chunky mix veges - i just used what was in the freezer and cupboard...got rid of those soft veges.

Danielle's Review | Rating

nice dish but have to be careful. If you don't cook it long enough, the chicken may not cook. To be more safe, briefly precook the chicken.

Melissa's Review | Rating

Nice, although I found that 45 mins wasn't long enough to cook the chicken. It was cooked after 1 hour though.

this was delicious, i used condensed pumpkin soup as i didnt have chicken soup and it was very yummy, also didnt use as much chicken, was a lovely healthy meal with lots of yummy veges

Jane Irwin's Review | Rating

This was a disappointment. Chicken took at least half an hour longer to cook through. Sauce was really running and watery. Too much hassle... having to grate pumpkin is a drag. Onion and potatoes weren't cooked through. Defintitely won't bother again.

Duanette Ineson's Review | Rating

I love it. Very easy to do. And for the ppl saying things such as too runny, bland, or pumpkin takes too long to grate etc - just change it to suit. I don't used grated pumpkin I use chunks. The chicken I fry beforehand so it's definitely cooked through. I use pumpkin soup instead of chicken. So yeah...there are no down sides to this dish because it can so easily be changed to suit if needed/wanted.

Carolyn Luck's Review | Rating

We didn't like the taste of the Chicken Soup so when I made it the second time I used a tin of Pasta Bake-Creamy SundriedTomato and Garlic and was much nicer, also cooked it for 1 hour. I have made it several times with the Past Bake and it is a lovely dish

Tracy's Review | Rating

Its in the oven, after 45 min the potatoes are hard as rock and the chicken still pink. I have put it in the microwave for 10 min and then checked again.....the chicken at the bottom is still raw - for some reason the bottom will not cook! I would def precook the spuds and the chicken otherwise it will take a VERY long time :-( :-(

Tony's Review | Rating

I doubled the potatoes the chicken and the chunky veg also added peas & Beans and I pre boiled the potatoes and semi cooked the rest of ingredients also used sage & onion stuffing mixture instead of breadcrumbs then at the end of cooking I put the two dishes under the grill which made them lovely and crunchy.

I gave you a feed back on your Chicken Bake which by the way was delicious but I don't see it on your feed back page Cheers Tony

Garth's Review | Rating

This recipe really needs to be updated to say precook the chicken. Had it in the oven for an hour & a half, and the chicken in the middle was still raw! Waste of time & money. Wish I'd read the comments first.

Levina's Review | Rating

Been in oven for an hour...still not cooked!! Hope it tastes good when it's finally ready, but not ideal with hungry kids waiting for tea. Should of cooked potatoes and chicken first :(

Hi Levina,

Our apologies, there is a slight error in the cook time which we've updated in the recipe. You'll need to bake this for 1 - 1 1/4 hours and cut the potatoes thinly to allow the chicken and potatoes to cook through.

Hope this helps! Thank you,
