Recipe Comments & Reviews

Made this for a get together. Everyone went for seconds. So happy about it. Keeper for recipe book. Thank you for making it soo easy
I added some ginger and chopped pieces of sausages, and It turned to be GREAT... u should try it sometime.
My soon to be finicky 18 year old son absolutely loves this recipe. I usually make a double bath. However, I noticed you changed the butter. It used to be a different butter product in tub. I think it was a buttery spread.
I like the touch of parmesan cheese.
I did substitute fresh carrots and fresh broccoli for the frozen veggies.
I have the butcher chop up the chicken for me - goes together VERY quickly when you don't have to spend time cutting up chicken. I use a frozen carrot/broccoli mix WITH frozen "pogs" of garlic/herbs. Tasty leftovers!
