First time I made this as specified- yes, VERY bland. This time I used Cr of Chick and Broccoli/cheese soups. Seasoned the chicken to no end (salt, pepper, garlic powder, dreid basil, oregano). Added monterey jack/colby and mozzarella. I actually doubled the recipe this time- my mistake. Still bland. Loaded up the salt (very unhealthy) and pepper. No go. Maybe once it sits awhile, it will taste better. One thing for sure, my teenage son is a human vacumn. He'll eat it. Won't be total waste of money. But will not make again. Sorry, Kraft.
