"It was a good recipe but wayyy too salty... The croutons and cheese definitely were a nice touch... I used only chicken broth... Maybe that's why.. Would make again but opt for low sodium broth and soup.."

"I have made this recipe many times, including holiday dinners for the extended families. Everyone likes it and most take seconds and thirds. I use chicken broth instead of wine and finely crushed stuffing mix instead of crushed croutons and sometimes add cooked, diced bacon under the cheese to make a sort of cordon bleu. I have used sliced and shredded swiss cheese with equal results...delicious."

"My hubby and 2, 4, and 6 yr old LOVED this recipe. I thought it was very good and it was SO easy to make. I am planning on using ham next time to go on the chicken before the swiss cheese to make it kind of like a chicken cordon bleu dish... we will see how it turns out!"

"My husband really liked this receipe and so did my 4 year old son. That is why it got 3 stars from me. I however did not like it at all. I don't exactly know what about it I did not like but it just was not a good flavor for me, and I love all the ingredients by themselves but not together. If I make this again (because my men loved it) I think I will use half white wine and half chicken broth because I think that is what was the main reason I did not like it. The wine was too strong."

"This was good and so easy! I made it with chicken broth because my husband doesn't like wine, but I'm sure it would be even better with it. I sprinkled some garlic salt and a little poultry seasoning on the chicken before adding the sauce,so that also added some flavor. It looks like you really put in a lot of work but took me very little time to prep. so it would be good for company."
