"In reading the reviews, I wasn't quite sure how this recipe would turn out. Well, I finally decided to give it a try this past weekend. I did line the crockpot with cooking parchment paper, which made clean-up super easy and I did cook it for 3 hours. I added the ingredients just as described and while yes it was more lava-ish than cake-ish, overall it turned out great! When I say lava-ish it wasn't as thin as syrup, but rather a thicker consistency more like pudding. The pudding did not turn green, as I saw in other reviews people said it did. In serving it I was able to find a nice balance of the lava part and the cake part. Everyone thought it was delicious and some were asking for more! I would make this again, as it was a huge hit! "

"This dish turned out great! I did make one change, I cooked up the meat for a few minutes on the stove, then put the cheese and barbeque sauces, as well as the onion along with the meat into the crockpot and cooked it on low for a few hours so that all the flavors would blend together. I then cooked up the noodles just before serving, mixed everything together and it was a huge hit with the family! I will definitely be making this again! It was super easy and tasted delicious!"

"This recipe is overall good, as well as very easy and quick to make. I did make a few changes, such as; used steamed broccoli mixed with the cream-style corn, my husband prefers the cheddar French's french fried onions, and I did use a liquid egg substitute which seemed to work much better in getting the batter to stick to the chicken.

"I just made this and in reading the previous comments, I did make some alterations to the recipe and it turned out wonderful! My husband simply loves it! I used two cans of our favorite pasta sauce (24 oz. each) instead and used cheese ravioli. I first sprayed the dish with Pam spray, then layered the recipe...about half a jar of sauce on the bottom, then one package of ravioli, about three quarters of a jar of sauce and then some cheese, then the second package of ravioli, the remainder of sauce, and topped it with more cheese. I did not precook anything either, just threw the onion and garlic in wherever I layered the sauce. After reading some of the comments I chose to cook it for my first time making it when I would be home just to be able to check on it and see how long it really would need to be cooked. I started checking on it after 2 hours and stirred it up a bit, then checked on it each hour after that due to in previous comments others saying the cooking time was much shorter than the minimum of 5 hours recommended in the recipe. In my crockpot it was done perfectly after 4 hours cooked on low. The ravioli wasn't mushy, nor was anything too dry. Everything was just right! My husband says he likes it better cooked in the crockpot then when I would make it on the stove. We were very happy with this recipe! It was delicious and we have plenty of leftovers! There was no sticking or burning to the pot so it was also super easy to clean up! I will definitely be cooking this again!! "
