“Easy and the entire family loves this. Makes a perfect meal with some crusty bread and a green salad. I use frozen meatballs when I’m in a hurry.” – Carrie Carney
“This Lasagna turned out excellent. It was actually the best lasagna that I have made. Nice change from the old traditional lasagna that everyone makes. I will definitely make this recipe again.” – Marcie Banes
“Loved the flavor of this soup! My family loves General Tso’s chicken, so when I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it. Super easy. The hoisin sauce really makes this dish. Served with potstickers and rice. Everyone loved it!” – Deb Glass
“Made this last night, turned out so yummy. Added potatoes, onions and garlic on bottom, and used chicken thighs – turned out tender and flavorful. Perfect leftovers for sandwiches, tacos, or pasta dishes….Hubby really liked this!” – mmm92627
“Excellent! This recipe couldn’t be easier and it is delicious! Leftovers freeze well for an encore quick dinner.” – Vinnie's Mom
“I have made this recipe for my family MANY times since I found it! It’s economical to make with the chicken thighs – I had never cooked with them before and thought I might not like them, I was sooo wrong! It’s delicious and my boys (13 & 16) get excited when they come home from school and find this dish in the crockpot. It’s also diet-friendly, low-calorie and satisfying. We love this crock-pot meal!” – mmbpat
“This is one of my favorite vegetarian dishes! My family loves it! So glad I discovered this dish! Thank you!” – Lourena
“I’ve made this a number of times. I like to use leftover dark turkey meat and I add a can of corn (or a cup of frozen corn). I use just “chili beans” instead of turkey with beans. My whole family – including my 7 year old daughter – LOVES it.” – Sarah Newman
“These were so easy and delicious! I used venison instead of flank steak. After it was done cooking in the crock I shredded it and added some taco flavored rice (I pre-cooked it by Lipton) then graded some pepper-jack cheese in them before rolling them up. My husband takes them to work and warms them up for lunch. Thanks for the great recipe!” – AngelRyan75
“Loved this recipe, and I will definitely make it again. It lends itself well to substitutions; I didn’t have orange marmalade, so I used a sweet-hot onion relish, squeezed two oranges and threw in the pulp. I should have backed off on the crushed red pepper, due to the heat of the relish, but my bad. I might try throwing in some pineapple chunks and onion next time. This is a keeper.” – Hayseed39
“I have made this a few times and find it quick and easy. I add diced onion, dry mustard, and pepper. I also decrease the processed cheese while adding another kind of shredded cheese, whatever I have on hand. Making it again today!” – lisadritchie
“I have been making this dish just as the recipe states for years and it is one of my family’s favorites!” – KellyR007
“Very easy to make. It was also very tasty! The cream cheese made it so creamy and delicious! It would also be delicious to add chopped ham if you wanted to instead of topping with the bacon.” – gunslinger
