Reviews for Creamy Herbed Chicken
"Made it tonight. chicken was very tender. I actually did not use the Knorr seasoning because I couldn't find it... so I used a little of the following: fresh chopped oregano, dried thyme, crushed rosemary, garlic powder and a little McCormick Montreal chicken Seasoning...... and it had a great flavor - not overpowering and far from bland. I'm so glad I didn't use the Knorr seasoning since a lot of reviews says it made it too salty. I served it over buttered fettuccini noodles."
"My family loves this recipe!!"
"Too salty? Skip the sauce mix! Use regular cream of chicken, and reduce the milk to 3/4 cup. Stir in one tablespoon prepared pesto! Also, a pinch of poultry seasoning will omit the thyme. Must try topped with Parmesan cheese."
"Always looking for new chicken recipes and this one is really good. I added a little chopped onion and celery and it was even better!"
"I too, do a recipe similar to this. Using the cream of chicken soup is the main starter. I really love basil as a the main herb but any will do. Lemon juice and a can of milk, to clean out soup, make a thick wonderful sauce. My husband prefers potatoes, so I make instant mashed for a hurry up meal. You can also add mushrooms, brocolli, carrots, or any veggie you want and you have an 'all in one pan' meal quick!"
"This recipe was fairly delicious, however I agree with other reviews which stated it was overly salty. If I make this recipe again, I will likely avoid the sauce mix and add herbs and spices on my own."
"It was ok. I substituted a different sauce mix since I couldn't find the garlic herb mix and added a teaspoon of rosemary. It still needed something else."
"This was so-so. I won't make again. :("
"My family really liked this recipe. I omitted the parsley and thyme and still thought it tasted great!"
"As the chicken was near completion, i found it to be bit too salty so i added a half pound of fresh mushroom to absorb the salt for the last half hour. I also added the zest of a lemon and its juice and stirred in some fresh flat leaf parsley right at the end. Yum!"
"i found this easy to make but very bland"
"Not bad, a little salty. Definitely use low-sodium products, it might be good with some parmesan cheese, as well."
"Restaurant quality! This smelled delicious as it cooked and tasted wonderful. I added only a little thyme (maybe 1/4 tsp.), and I would highly recommend using the low-sodium version of the canned soup; if I had used the regular version, it probably would have been way too salty for our tastes, but it was just great with those minor changes."
"I made this recipe a while back. It was awesome, and my entire family loved it. Making it again this week!"
"Okay, but not as good as I hoped. Even one teaspoon of thyme seemed overpowering, which surprised me! It's okay, but not too exciting!"
