"My whole fam loved this--I added fresh mushrooms a little more than half way through and used 1/2 can italian tomatoes in place of a fresh one. Would definitely make again--"

"The sauce in the recipe was really good! The chicken, however, was not. The texture was perfect but the taste was not good. If I made it again, I was just make the sauce."

"I thought this was pretty good-- it was certainly easy to make-- but what makes this a fabulous recipe in MY book, is that my finicky son loved it, and even happily ate leftovers the next day!"

"So easy and so flavorful. I thought the sauce was going to be too runny but after I thoroughly stirred it, it was just right. I used boneless chicken breasts since that is all I had and they were moist and super tender. My husband volunteered that he liked the dish! That's enough for me to make this on a regular basis."

"I have made this recipe many times. I use frozen chicken breast so that they come out tender, but firm. I use Vidalia onion dressing. It gives the sauce a great flavor. Pizza sauce, instead of spaghetti sauce, is really good too in a pinch. This is a keeper recipe for a busy day. It couldn't be simpler or more delicious."
