I added salt pepper and soul seasoning to this and enjoyed it. My sons ate multiple bowls of it which is why I'm giving it 5 stars. They love chicken but have never been fans of carrots. In this they loved them! Read More

I have made this recipe twice. The first time I made it exactly as written and it was very bland. I agree with other reviewers who think that it is a starter recipe...it just needs some flavor added to it. The second time I made this I added some seasoning and some Italian cheese blend to the dish and my family enjoyed it. Read More

As a recipe starter or for someone just learning to cook this meal as written is just OK. I seasoned my chicken quite well and I used chicken broth I'd made myself from Roast Sticky Chicken from this site--so those ingredients contained a lot of flavor. I had to use capellini rather than noodles since that is the only pasta my husband will really eat and I did use a heavy dose of butter with that. The Parmesan cheese adds a little more flavor and salt. It still cried out heavily for more flavor so I added a few leftover caramelized onions from my fridge. In the end I had to add some more of my favorite condiments. I recommend starting out with this recipe but having in mind and handy all the flavorings that you know you love with the ingredients.

As written this gets three stars. I added in a lot of things. This recipe calls for no seasonings. I am guessing because it is meant to be base and they are assuming that you will add in what you like to suit your own tastes. I started out by seasoning my chicken breasts with salt black pepper thyme rosemary and minced garlic. I also cooked the noodles in chicken broth for added flavor and added salt & pepper when I tossed them with the butter and parm. I then followed the recipe as written. The carrots took 8 minutes not 5 to heat and cook through. The noodles and carrots were very good - however I don't care for pan cooking chicken breasts this way. They always seem to come out dry. I suggest pounding your chicken flat before cooking it. But if I make this again I will cook my chicken & carrots with the broth in a slow cooker on low for 6 hours and then place on top of the noodles. Read More

I did make some changes because the recipe seemed bland. Fresh garlic. Fresh carrots and celery which I micro'd 2 mins before putting in pan and mushrooms. Chicken was moist. But this was more like a flavorful soup. I don't think I would make it again I would just make soup. Maybe thicken up the liquid to make a gravy to pour over. Read More

This was a really good recipe! The only changes I made were that I cubed the chicken instead of having whole breasts and added mashed potatoes which was a great addition. Read More

I really liked the simplicity of this recipe. However I salt and peppered the chicken and added garlic. The seasoning helped build more flavor. Read More
