Great dish. Wonderful Paula Deen. She should get the O network to give her a show! I bet Oprah would even give her a second chance! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this recipe dozens of times and never tire of it. I love the crunch of the water chestnuts, but I usually omit the onions. I am ashamed for the so called "adults" who can't swallow their misplaced pride and bring your shows back. Alot of the new programs aren't even worthy of airtime, it's easier to just change the channel. THOUSANDS of us have spoken Food Network, when are you going to listen?! Each one of you should examine every SECOND of your own lives , then cast the first stone. This vendetta has gotten way out of control, you guys REALLY jumped the gun when you pulled Paula off the air. You acted like school children. Grow up and right what was wronged! Maybe you'll be able to sleep again at night. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Hate the new site... can't print out the recipes... GO BACK to THe old one.. WHY FIX IT WASN"T BROKE>>>>>> BUT LOVE_LOVE PAULA DEAN>>>BRING HER BACKKKKK>>> item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this recipe and I like the others think this is an outrage how the network handled this situation. I no longer watch the food channel and also cancelled my subscription. Although I miss some of the other cooks, I believe we should stand behind Paula and hold our ground. Keep the faith item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I liked this. The only "off" thing for me was that there seemed to be a "smokey" flavor and I do not like smokey. I have attributed it to the pimentos and will omit that the next time I make this. It is very easy and quick to put together. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A great southern tradition, just like you, Paula - we miss you! Too bad the New York producers can't get over themselves. Oh, and a wonderful recipe, too. :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was great! I doubled the recipe for friends and it was gobbled up by four teenagers, who actually called the next day to tell me how good it was. The water chestnuts add a great crunch. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty!! This is our absolute favorite chicken and rice casserole recipe! I have served it to so many people, and everyone loves it!!! Definitely makes a difference when you cook the onions first!!! So easy item not reviewed by moderator and published

While I agree with some of your comments, You are defeating yourself by giving PAULAS' RECCIPE A low mark.It lowers her rating on this recipe. Rate the RECIPE an objective, & useful way..Then Tap the bubble and comment on F.N. & the site,and FN lack of judgment. That way Paulas' recipe andd reputation as aa recipe creator does not item not reviewed by moderator and published
