Reviews for Chicken Neapolitan
"Really enjoyed this dish. I started the veggies before adding the chicken because boneless chicken doesn't need to cook as long as the total time listed. I thought the bisque was a little too sweet, but hubby and I definitely liked this dish. Will make again, thanks for sharing!"
"A most awesome dish , nice rich sauce and lots of flavor . I don't rate many dishes 5 star but this is one of them"
"Excellent. I have made this dish for company twice and everyone raves about it. I also like the fact that it can be made in advance and frozen. This recipe is a definite keeper."
"I found the sauce rather sweet so I added a bit of balsamic vinegar to cut the sweetness. Also my husband suggested adding a little cream to it to mellow out the taste. The overall effect was wonderful. Everyone of my picky eaters went back for seconds!"
"Fast, easy, and delicious!"
