This was just OK. We ate it because thats what I had made for dinner. No one had seconds and it made quite a bit. I will not be repeating this one.Read More

I really enjoyed this recipe. I made it exactly as the recipe asks except for one wonderful change. I added a packet of dry Italian salad dressing to the chicken. yumm it was fantastic. I was concerned about the cheddar cheese but I really thought it added a uniqe and wonderful flavor. I am gonna go and eat some left overs for lunch now lets see if its as good the next day :)
i loved this... i also used the dry italian dressing on the chicken. i used two jars of spaghetti sauce instead of one.. highly recommend this
I would suggest doubling the amount of pasta and chicken involved, and adding italian seasonings (and maybe some onion/bell peppers if you like spice) while still only using 1 jar of spaghetti sauce. Make these changes for a 5 star experience!
I found this recipe today. IT IS AWESOME!!! I used 6 skinless chicken breast diced and seasoned with salt, pepper and one packet of dry italian salad mix. I placed it in a ziplock back for 2 hours( had to pick up the kiddies). I also used fresh broccoli that i diced and steamed. I mixed Mozzarella cheese and on top ( because this is what i had) i used finely shredded fiesta blend cheese. ( monterey jack, cheddar, queso quesadilla and asadero cheese). OMG!
This was a simple dish that my family really liked. I made a couple of changes: I used turkey tenderloin instead of chicken because that's what I had on hand. I sauteed the turkey in butter which gave it a nice flavor. I also used alfredo sauce instead of spaghetti sauce which was really good. The only change I would make in the future would be to use less pasta. I thought 16 oz. was way too much...half the pasta would have been better.
Good casserole dinner. I added itallian seasoning for extra flavor. Easy to make and my kids loved it. I will make it again.
Make even better by sauteing chicken with garlic, onions, mushrooms
Yum.. We liked this a lot. I didn't chop up the chicken until after it was cooked; I cooked it just about 12 minutes until it was done and it wasn't dry. The dish needed more spaghetti sauce but I noticed my jar was only 24 oz. and the recipe calls for 26! I used regular broccoli because it's what I had! Thanks! :)
Good, but I preferred it without the cheddar cheese on top. I substituted more mozarelli.
I doubled the pasta sauce as per other commenters, I also used whole wheat bowties (I didn't have any rigatoni), added some corn and sauteed onions, garlic and celery with the chicken. I didn't use half mozza/half cheddar, and just used marble. This was an amazing starting point for a recipe, and my fiance loved it. I will be definitely making this again!
My fiance told me that this needs to be a standard meal from now on. I think next time I will try some different vegetables.
This tasetd good the first day, but not so good reheated.
Very good recipe, and easy to make. Instead of broccoli, i used cans of turnipe..exccellent choice
This was just OK. We ate it because thats what I had made for dinner. No one had seconds and it made quite a bit. I will not be repeating this one.
Omitted the rabe and used frozen peas for the green veggie. My whole family really enjoyed this casserole dish! Yumm!
Sorry Stephanie, but this was Blah!
Use alfredo sause! You have no idea what you are you missing.
I gave this 4 stars as written but with a few changes and tweaks to our tastes it's definitely a 5 star dish. Instead of chicken I use coarse chunks of well seasoned and browned chunks of lean ground beef. I add about 1/2 cup of red wine, I never measure, 4 cloves of garlic, smashed and then coarsely chopped. My husband is a real mushroom fan so I put in 5 medium sized button mushrooms very thickly sliced and give them to him. I like the fact that this calls for lots of cheese and pasta because we are real fans of both, I even add about a half cup of grated parmesan into the mozzarella. Not caring much for broccoli rabe I use diced zucchini and spinach. I think what ever your favorite veggies are will work great.
This was very bland and the chicken was dry. I did freeze it and then baked it days later so that may have been why the chicken was dry. It needed more flavor but not sure how to give it more.
it was popular amongst the younger crowd. The adults did not enjoy it as much
Great and easy recipe! I added chicken seasoning to the chicken as well and onions! yum yum!
wow! really great...although i did double the sauce and moz cheese and had to sub pulled pork for chicken since that what i had in the fridge...but still....ridiculously good!
I loved this, I changed a few things I used regular brocolli instead of rabe, add mushrooms and diced tomatoes and seasoned the chicken with italian seasoning... my picky sister loved it!!
Family/friends loved it!!!
This recipe tasted really good. My kids really liked it. It was really easy and fast to make. I did not have spaghetti sauce with mushrooms in it so I added a 4 oz. can of mushrooms. It was delicious. I also did not have rigatoni so I used the pasta I had on hand and it turned out wonderfully. I will make this again. It was handy to have this as I did not know what I was going to make and I needed a quick supper fast.
This was delicious! My kids loved it and they are very hard to please.
I made this except insted of the broccoli i added green peppers, mushrooms and squash. it was a little dry. but add in a little extra sauce and its a winner.
Awesome! Husband loved it and asked for it again!
I modified this recipe - used Alfredo sauce with mushrooms and frozen broccoli, instead of spaghetti sauce and rabe. It was amazing! Will be making again.
Made this but I did it with the homemade spaghetti sauce I make. I just left out the meat in half of it for this recipe. Not only did I make dinner for that night but had enough sauce left over to make a spaghetti dinner with meat for another night since I can freeze the left over sauce. Is a really nice and easy recipe for nights that I really don't want to cook but need to.
We did not care for this
Now I know I don't like rabe.
Added half a chopped onion, 2 cloves of garlic, 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, 1/4 tsp seasoned salt. Very good flavor and nice and cheesy.
rabe was too bitter for my taste. Makes a huge amount
Super bland even though I added Italian seasoning to the chicken first. The chicken was delicious; everything else was weird. Who wants cheddar on this kind of dish? I should have trusted my instincts and omitted it, but I followed the recipe, and regret it. Not sure we'll even be able to eat this for lunch tomorrow
I mde this and thought it was very good. Only changes I used fresh mushrooms and sauted the greens with olive oil and garlic and omitted the cheddar.
Add italian dressing over the top for an extra tang.
Too dry and bland. Next night I tried to add more sauce....will not make this again...........
I made it vegetarian and it came out great--peppers, asparagus, eggplant, zucchini, tomato, and a blend of Italian cheeses.
