MY REVIEW

"Hubby says it's a "5 star". For myself I would prefer the carrots steamed then put in pan with butter. Didn't have heavy cream so used half and half. For some reason that curdled (separated??) and I put in a bit of cornstarch to thicken it up. Didn't hurt the flavor. I did as much as possible this afternoon and it really made a difference on time needed to prepare."

"Everyone in my family LOVED it, including my picky eaters! I always make the recipe as is the first time, but have since made some modifications... I now use 1 cup heavy cream and 1 cup fat free half and half. This cuts down on the fat and calories without sacrificing the creaminess. I also have cooked the chicken in the microwave in my pampered chef small covered baker to cut down on time. I sprinkle it with the salt and I use garlic pepper and cook on high for 5 minutes. While that and the angel hair are cooking I get started on the carrots in the butter. I also buy the precooked bacon and crumble that up (again to save time). It comes out fantastic every time. Love this recipe!!"

"We really enjoyed this recipe, I added extra butter because I didn't have whipping cream. I won't add as much next time. Even our 11 month old granddaughter loved it. Will definitely make this again."
