I made this for my husband and I and it was pretty bad. For 4 teaspoons flour, 1/2 cup half/half was not enough (I didn't bother with the chicken broth). I used Evaporated skim milk to lightened it up and used almost a whole can. Also, I missed the part about 4 to 6-inches from the broiler heat and my breasts burnt a little on the surface so I had to scrape off the charred spices. I used 4 ounces of pasta and that's probably more than the 1 cup but the recipe still makes more than 2 servings. It was edible but I threw the leftovers out.

Great flavor, lots of work but the results are delicious

It was okay, but definitely too much work, for a mediocre dish with a definite lack in flavor. I had dirty dishes and pans everywhere. I don't mind that if it's a tasty dish, but sorry, this just wasn't it.

Slice chicken thin. And can use a tad more chicken.
