RE-RATING THIS! Easy, TASTY, added water chestnuts....and had SUGGESTIONS that I put frozen green beans instead next time for a different taste, plus a little color! Definitely a GO TO from now on in a pinch for time...4 people eating, had MY CKD allotment, and they FINISHED the REST! So much for LEFTOVERS!

I would make this recipe again. The dish was not pleasant to look at. I also thought it had way too much sodium. The dish was edible, but would make again.

Should the chow mein noodles be cooked first? I'm not familiar with this dish and would like to know. Would cream of mushroom soup be an okay sub for cream of chicken? Moderator comment: Yes, you can substitute cream of mushroom soup for the chicken soup. The chow mein noodles in this recipe are purchased already cooked.

I make this all the time. I use the Campbell's chicken noodle "for low sodium diets" to cut the sodium& potassium down. It's not only easy but leaves leftovers for couple of nights

Don't get me wrong - this was yummy. We really watch potassium so this recipe was modified. We cut recipe in 1/2 but only used 5 oz of 93/7% lean gr. beef to save pot. and added more onion, celery and corn in as filler (and lesser evil). Used only can of cream of chicken soup due to recipe reduction and omitted Worcestershire to cut sodium. Ended up a little bland but my husband LOVES his pepper!

I like this recipe, but I put the chow mein noodles on in- dividual servings after baking. I find the chow mein gets soggy in the oven. This reminds me of a casserole my Mom made. Mmmm.
