Cayenne pepper gives a little zip to this creamy chicken bake. It's one of my most-requested dishes for potluck dinners and other get-togethers. I sometimes use spinach noodles in place of the egg noodles.—Cheryl Davidson, Fulshear, Texas

"I thought this was very good, but nothing extraordinary. I put in the larger amount of pepper and cayenne pepper..first bite I thought a little too spicy, but not too bad after a couple of bites. My 17 month old ate it up!"
