How to Safely Handle Raw Chicken

Always wash hands, preparation surfaces and utensils in hot, soapy water before and after contact with raw chicken. Dry hands and surfaces with a clean towel or paper towels. Take special care in washing worn cutting boards as there may be hard-to-clean grooves or cracks that can collect bacteria.

Special Extra

Add 1/2 tsp. dried basil leaves to cooked chicken in skillet along with the Neufchatel cheese.

Substitute

Bake in 2-qt. casserole instead of the square baking dish.

I used a pound of pasta and over a pound of chicken, so I doubled up all the ingredients in the recipe. Even with doing that and seasoning the chicken while cooking and adding additional cheese at the end, the dish still didn't have much taste. It was OK, but needs more flavor. I may not make this dish again.

I too doubled the ***** cheese and used about 1/2 cup parmesean instead of just two tablespoons. I also found that you need about 2 cups of pasta. Mix it all together instead makeing two steps out of baking it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was the best! This was the best! It did not last very long at the dinner table. The only change that I made was doubling the sauce. It seemed like it was going to be too dry, so I added more cream cheese, cheese and broth. It turned out perfect and I will definitely make this often.

The amount of sauce didn't seem to be quite enough so I added what I had on hand: a can of green enchilada sauce. I crumbled parmesan cheese mixed with smashed taco chips on top. Has plenty of flavor and moist enough!

I doubled the cream cheese and broth due to other reviews that this was dry but I found it to be too soupy and not nearly cheesy enough. I didn't think there was much flavor and I wouldn't make this again.
