"Love how easy this is to prepare with the added bonus of ending up with two meals! I prepared it exactly as per instructions and everyone thought it was delicious. It's a keeper."
"We are still enjoying this dish over and over and over again! So easy to make."
"I tripled this recipe and froze it when I was expecting my first child. I'll admit, the flavor combination was a little different, and I wasn't 100% sure about it when I first made it. But it really grew on me - it's a favorite now, and I find myself cooking extra chicken when I make other meals just so that I can have leftover chicken to use in this recipe. I love it!! I did follow the advice of other reviewers and I slightly reduced the amount of noodles I used and I've had no problems with the dish being dry. For some reason I can't click on the "stars" to rate the dish, but I would give it 5 stars!"
