Will not be making this again. The chicken was tough and the sauce was tasteless. I added spice to the sauce since others had commented that the sauce was bland, but even that did not help. This is not a keeper. Very disappointing. I'm glad I did not make this for guests, which I had considered doing.

This was a very tasty dish. I used 1 can of chicken soup and 1/4 cup milk. I also added extra paprika.

I made this tonight and we both really enjoyed it. The only change I made was to use regular cream of chicken soup, but followed the recipe for the rest of it. Easy to make and very tasty. I will make this again!

Didn't really care for this. Made exactly as instructed but probably won't make again.

My picky toddler didn't like it but my husband and I loved it.

The lemon juice really enhances the salt flavor and I use regular cream of chicken, asparagus or celery or both (usually two cans). I make this a lot and hubby loves it. It is easy and delicious. For those who think it bland, just as add salt and pepper. Easy.Thanks. : )

This is a really quick and easy dish. By itself its about a 3/5 or a 4/5, but if you serve it over garlic/bacon mashed potatoes it is awesome!

We really enjoyed this dish! I made one change though, I added a cup of shredded mozzarella cheese at the end and melted it for about 5 minutes.

This was very quick and easy to make and looked very pretty on the plate! The sauce was a bit bland for our tastes but that's an easy fix!

Although the chicken came out really good, the sauce (which is really just undiluted soup) was terrible. I will.not be making this again.
