I took the suggestions from other members here, and it turned out so-so. The taste wasn't the issue, but the mechanics of it were. The chicken fell out very easily when trying to plate the dish. The soup-ish mixutre was a bit runnier than I imaged. I should have used more cheese. I cooked the noodles ahead of time, as well as he chicken, so I was able to cut cooking time in half. I should have remembered to use less water as well.
I added spices to the chicken, and fresh chopped parsley to soup mixture. I added garlic to the dish as well. Hope this helps!
