Rated 3 out of 5 by from As many other people commented, this dish was quite bland for me. As many other people commented, this dish was quite bland for me. I followed the directions as instructed. Thankfully I read the reviews before making this. I added some Parmesan cheese before serving which gave a bit of flavor. I also added some salt and pepper. Next time I will drain the veggies after cooking. I think the excess juices in the pan diluted the flavor of the creme. I might also consider adding onions with the squash. Some tinkering with the recipe will make it only better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All I can say is WOW! All I can say is WOW! My husband and I looked at this recipe in a recent email from Kraft. It looked delicious and simple, which it was. I caramelized the squash, so mine did not look as pretty as the picture posted but it sure was good. I would make it again. I don't think it needs the chicken and would taste good with just squash or squash and onions and or mushrooms.

I couldn't find orzo or Italian herb cooking cream at my store so I used vegetable rotini & Creamy Pesto instead. The tub of cooking creme wasn't enough & I was in a pinch so I added a little milk. It still came out very good. Loved the squashes with it. Will definitely try again & hopefully I can find those 2 ingredients.

If I were to make it again, I would almost double the cooking creme as I didn't think it was enough. This recipe makes A LOT so it was nice to have left-over for my husband throughout the week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was amazing...my daughter's new favorite! This was amazing...my daughter's new favorite! I cut the chicken into bite-sized chunks instead of leaving them whole and put them into the sauce with the vegetables. The chicken was more flavorful simmering in the sauce. Will make this over and over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A few minor changes- it was wonderful! A few minor changes- it was wonderful! I sautéed the orzo in butter first and then added the cubed chicken, a 1 1/4 c of water (chicken broth would have been even better)all of the cream cheese and veggies. It was a hit!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This one is definitely a keeper for my family. This one is definitely a keeper for my family. We love fresh mushrooms so I did add those and I cut up the chicken in bite size pieces. I had never tried orzo pasta before and we thought this was delicious.
