"I made this for supper tonight. It was pretty good and went together very easily. I used half of a 16 oz box of spaghetti and there's no way these are 1 cup servings. I would recommend throwing another chicken patty or two on top, because friends, these are some heaping helpings. I would say that 6 is a more likely estimate-- if you're feeding people with smaller appetites you might be able to squeeze 7 or 8 out of this dish."

"I'm pricky and not sure of spices ,but this was very good and the family loved it too. I used the chicken Tyson fully cooked Southern Style Breast Tenderloins and its a different then just plain old spaghetti and of course you have to have garlic bread to .:-)"

"I used frozen chicken nuggets instead of the chicken patties, and it still turned out great. My picky husband and kids even liked it - it's a keeper!"

"Really good! I was missing Italian seasoning so mine wasn't as flavorful as it could have been. I'd suggest jazzing it up with some more spices like garlic, etc .... Also, I didn't have any breaded fully cooked chicken patties so I just used chicken breasts that were already cooked. Turned out pretty good!"
