Got home had bow ties and decided to google chicken and bow ties. Picked this recipe and actually had all the ingredients. Was able to prepare and eat in 45 minutes. I don’t have a Dutch oven so fixed the chicken another way. Very good recipe! Easy, fast AND good!!!

Very good. Didn't have peas so I used fresh chopped broccoli and different shaped pasta of choice.

We love it! I made some changes. I boiled the chicken breast with seasoning and shredded. Then followed the rest of the instructions and Added 1/2 cup milk and another can of condensed soup. So it's not so dry.

Not a bad recipe. Needs something more though, maybe more cheese. Just ok

I made this meal for my family and not only was it easy but even my picky eaters loved it. There was enough to have to meals so we ate one that night and put the other in the freezer. I may add bacon next time!

This is a dinner to be made only for me. My husband did not like it. I did! I halved the recipe, and it still made a lot. Needed lots of salt and pepper. My kind of comfort food. Oh, and don't use cheap chicken. I keep buying that generic stuff at Kroger and it's always rubbery. I don't think it's my cooking......but maybe.

An average meal for us. I wanted much more flavor. It is filling and a quick fix for busy weeknights for sure.

Very easy to make. Might add chopped carrots next time. I omitted the butter, subbed fat free milk and reduced fat soup.
