Reviews forCreamy Italian Chicken
"I have been making this for 10 years and it is a definite family favorite. I typically slice my chicken breasts into thin pieces. My original recipe does not call for it to be shredded. That seems to have been added recently."
"Love love love it! Cooked as directed. Has so much flavor and easy to make"
"I've made it twice already. I made it according to directions the first time, but this last time I happened upon a refrigerated cooked rotisserie chicken marked down at the grocery store. So instead of using the crock pot, I put all the sauce ingredients in a pot, heated them together on low whole I pulled the meat of the rotisserie chicken (I got rid of the skin, too.) I got just over 21 ounces of cooked meat from the chicken and or it all in the sauce and heated it through. It was a bit on the thick side, so I loosened it up with chicken broth. Simmered it all together until it was hot and it came out great (and pretty quick once the chicken was taken apart.) I used reduced fat cream cheese and the 98% fat free cream of chicken soup. It was still amazingly rich. I also added little red pepper flakes. This one is a keeper for sure in my household."
"My wife couldn't stop raving about this dish. My family really enjoyed it. Thank you!"
"My family loves this. I have made it many times.It never gets old. I have it in the crock-pot now. can't wait"
"Love this, couldn't be easier! I usually add whatever vegetables I have in the house (towards the end). Today i added a can of peas (drained) and a handful of frozen spinach (thawed and squeezed dry). I have also used broccoli (I usually boil it for a little bit first). It's always awesome!"
"I must be the oddball judging from the high reviews for this but I followed this to a T, and it was just not good at all. First off, let me say that I could not find any brands of Italian dressing mix that did not contain sugar, and that was the first ingredient listed on the envelope. I looked at the bottled Italian salad dressing and saw all brands also have sugar. For me, the idea of mixing cream of chicken soup with any kind of seasoning mix that contains sugar just did not sound good, but I went against my instincts and decided to follow the recipe as stated with the required envelope of Italian dressing mix thinking maybe the sugar wasn't very noticeable. Bad idea, the sugar was overpowering. I ended up pitching the whole thing and using the breasts for another recipe."
"Delicious, creamy and super easy!!! My three boys loved it as well as my 90 year old grandmother!!"
