Added celery and way more carrots to make it one dish meal. Used 8 oz reduced fat cream cheese. Served over quinoa. Yum! Looks like it will freeze well for single servings for work! Read More

I haven't tried the recipe and did want to comment on the critical note about it being a healthy recipe. I believe it said healthier not healthy. Is that not a good starting place for those unhealthy people! Read More

This was very tasty and easy to make. The only change I made was that I noticed that it was looking dry during the last 1/2 hour of cooking on high so I added 1/2 cup of chicken broth and it came out very nice. I do agree that it cooks in about 4 hours - 5 or 6 is much too long. Read More

Easy. To cut down on salt. Don't add the tsp. Of salt and make your own hicken broth. Eating healthier sometimes takes a bit of work. You can also buy no salt broth. Read More

Delicious! My husband loved it and he only likes hot dogs salisbury steak and ice cream. The comments on it not being "healthy" shows that "healthy" is in the eye of the beholder. For me 32.7 g protein and 6.5 g. carbs is really healthy. I substituted broccoli for the peas so it was less than 6.5 g carbs. Sodium and fat are no big deal. One question: What is "natural cream of chicken soup?" Guess I must have used the unnatural kind. Read More

I haven't tried this yet although I probably will. I think I would leave out the tsp of salt and let everybody season as they wish. I kept going back re-reading the 1 Tbsp of onion and carrot. Why in the world would you use that small of an amount for 4 chicken breasts? Read More
