    Delicious recipe and the whole family loved it. I added a little extra sage and I replaced whipping cream with cream cheese and butter like another reviewer suggested. Also used dairy-free parmesan substitute. Will be making this again!

    We all liked this dish. I used chicken and ground Italian turkey sausage. I only added 1/3 can of tomato and used part almond milk and whipping cream to cut back on some of the fat. I added some mushroom to make it a little bit more hearty. For added flavor, I added 1 tablespoon of pesto sauce. I paired this with a garden salad.

    Made this last night and really enjoyed it. I used half and half in place of whipping cream, but otherwise I followed the recipe as written. We will be fixing it again.

    Good recipe but when followed exactly it lacks flavor. It has potential and next time I would add more garlic, basil, and salt.

    Loved it using another reviewer's idea of creamed cheese and butter instead of heavy cream.

    I made this dish with 4 oz of cream cheese and two tablespoons of butter instead of heavy cream. Seasoned the chicken with salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. I used everglades seasoning instead of sage. May need to add a little water if you make it this way. My new favorite dish!! YUM-O!!
