Chicken Neapolitan Recipe

"I often prepare a week's worth of recipes on the weekend and freeze them so I can quickly have dinner ready for our hungry teenage boys after one of their many sports activities," says Joan Williams from Baltimore, Maryland. "Served over noodles, this moist chicken with a flavorful sauce is a favorite."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 30 min. + freezing YIELD:8 servings


  • 8 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

"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!"

"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!"

"I generally do not use soups in recipes but in the case of this one, especially if you don't like sweet soups, use Amy's Organic Chunky Tomato Bisque (and if you can find the low sodium variety, so much the better). The soup is intensely flavored and not at all sweet, perfect for this recipe and much healthier."

"the bisque is about the same as regular tomato soup except that it has small pieces of tomato in it. Tastes pretty close on the amount of sugar"

"Can anyone tell me if condensed tomato bisque soup is sweet, like regular tomato soup? This recipe looks good, but I dislike sweet tomato sauce. Thanks!"

"I have made this 3 times so far and even have batch in the freezer. I just brought this to the home of a relative who had just had surgery. The whole family including two picky teenagers devoured it! Success. Super easy but tastes like it took hours and freezes very well. If frozen, add fresh parsley and the sliced olives just before serving."

"This recipe was very quick and easy and had a wonderful flavor. My whole family enjoyed it."

"Delicious! This was very, very quick. I didn't have fresh mushrooms on hand, so I had to use canned and it turned out great. This recipe also cuts in half easily if you don't feel like doing the double to freeze half. We will make this again, and frequently!"
