"Not a bad recipe. Needs something more though, maybe more cheese. Just ok"

"I made this meal for my family and not only was it easy but even my picky eaters loved it. There was enough to have to meals so we ate one that night and put the other in the freezer. I may add bacon next time!"

"This is a dinner to be made only for me. My husband did not like it. I did! I halved the recipe, and it still made a lot. Needed lots of salt and pepper. My kind of comfort food. Oh, and don't use cheap chicken. I keep buying that generic stuff at Kroger and it's always rubbery. I don't think it's my cooking......but maybe."

"Wonderful the only thing I did different was add canned chicken and it turned out great. Makes a huge batch so I 1/2 the recipe."

"I made this recipe as stated and really liked it! Yes, it doesn't have strong, bold flavors as other reviewers have commented, but sometimes that's ok, and in this case, I think it turned out fine. It was a quick, easy meal that was tasty on a busy work night. Will make again for sure!"

"I made this recipe for last night's supper---very tasty! I READ the recipe, as I always do beforehand, to determine if I should change anything in regard to my family's food preferences. As a result, I added more garlic powder, added onion powder and a chopped medium onion, a teaspoon of chicken bouillon granules and about 1/4 cup of white wine to the mixture. All other ingredients I kept as stated. I did halve the recipe, though, as there were just three of us at supper, and I had no room in the freezer to store another casserole.

When I prepare this again---and I assuredly will--I'm going to add sliced, sauteed mushrooms."

"My children just LOVED this recipe! I sautéed a clove of garlic in the butter for 30 seconds before adding the red pepper and chicken. I also added 1/2 cup onion in with the pepper and chicken. I seasoned the chicken with seasoning salt and omitted the salt in the recipe. I omitted the garlic powder since I used fresh garlic. I also omitted the Parmesan cheese. It was very delicious!"
