Extremely quick and easy to make. I added about one half teaspoon of cornstarch to help thicken the sauce. Next time I think I'll add a little garlic mushrooms or onions to the mix. Kids liked it. Husband liked it. I liked it but thought it could be even better with a little extra spices. Served it with angel hair pasta tossed with butter and pepper french bread as suggested steamed mixed vegetables and a fresh tossed salad. I will definately make this dish again. Read More

I had to give this four stars for the original recipe.. BUT After taking the advice of some of the reviewers and adding garlic seasoned salt and Mrs.Dash to the chicken while it cooked... YUMMY!!!!! I will make this again with those changes. Make sure you buy crusty bread to dip in the sauce. Read More

As with other reviews I would say this is an EXCELLENT base recipe. I have made this a ton for my very picky family. To make everyone happy I've slowly altered it from the original recipe. To start I thicken up the sauce as well as add a ton of much-needed flavor by adding a can of garlic-seasoned cream of mushroom soup to the creme before adding the chicken. I also season the chicken with garlic poweder. I have added various vegetables -depending on my mood. This is a definate picky eater pleaser. Read More

This was by far the best chicken I have ever had! And to make it even better it was so fast and simple! I ate it with some Uncle Ben's flavorful rice and a side of green beans. I still dream of that meal. I will make this recipe again as soon as I can. Read More

This was REALLY good! Much better than it sounds. It sounded a little plain so I added sliced black olives and some leftover corn and served it over brown rice. Real comfort food! Will definitely make this again! Read More

This was incredibly delicious for something so quick and simple! I used two smaller chicken breasts instead of the tenderloins and I added a bit of parmesan cheese and some garlic powder to the cream. I served the sauce over the chicken on a bed of brown rice and broccoli - it was delicious! My husband and I all but licked our plates clean. If you're serving more than two or three people I'd suggest doubling the sauce. Yes it's that yummy.:-) Thanks Patty! Read More
