Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix cider vinegar, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, seasoned salt, red pepper flakes, monosodium glutamate, black pepper, and salt in a resealable plastic bag. Place chicken pieces into marinade, seal bag, and marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Remove chicken from marinade; discard used marinade. Cook chicken in hot oil until browned and no longer pink inside, about 10 minutes. Stir frequently. Transfer chicken to a bowl with a slotted spoon, leaving accumulated juices in skillet.

  • Whisk whipping cream into pan juices and cook until cream has started to thicken, about 5 minutes. Stir chicken back into skillet and reduce heat to low. Simmer chicken in cream sauce until sauce is thick, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook egg noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain. Gently stir cooked noodles into skillet with chicken and cream sauce.

The recipe was exactly how the food was described. The ony change that I would make is to simmer the whipping cream with the chicken for less than 15-20 min if you like the dish filled with sauce. Overall great dish. Read More

I thought it wasn't very good... I followed the directions except I used Hungarian hot paprika for the red pepper flakes since I didn't have. The chicken had flavor but it was missing something and for me it was bordering on salty. There was barely enough sauce and it wasn't even creamy. After it was done I ended up adding about a cup of sour cream but that really didn't help so now I'm left with this big tupperware of mess that I don't want to waste but I don't think anyone will eat it.

My husband LOVED this - will definitely make again. I followed the recipe other than omitting the MSG. Not too spicy but definitely had some kick! My one year old was also a fan :) Read More

I tweaked the recipe a lot but used the same base (minus MSG and hot pepper flakes). I added some cornstarch and additional milk to make more of the sauce and to thicken it up. I would suggest adding more salt and pepper if you do this. Then I threw in some cheap parmesan cheese. I also added frozen broccoli florets when I added the chicken back in. when I started cooking the egg noodles, I added sliced cherry tomatoes to the sauce. Tossed the noodles in and serve! Read More

Taste great! Just what I was hoping for. I didn t add MSG but I wanted to add some vegetables and I happen to have spinach and yellow peppers. Turned out perfect. Definitely keeping this in my favorites. Read More

My family LOVED this! We all enjoy creamy dishes and this one has the added bonus of a nice spicy little bite to it. I left out the MSG as it's not something I ever buy. We all had seconds and I had no leftovers! Read More
