    Based reviews from other users, I made a few adjustments. Turning this into something gourmet was easy! I halved the recipe since I only had 2 chicken breasts in the freezer. I used half of all the ingredients, with the exception of the milk, I used a little more than 1/2 C. I cut the chicken into pieces and marinated it in a bacon ranch dressing. I then browned, adding seasonings (Penzeys 4S salt, onion powder, mural of flavor) while cooking. Once the noodles were done, I used 1C of medium cheddar, 1/4 C of havarti and about 3Tb of cream cheese. Delicious! Who says dinner needs to be boring!?

    I made this recipe tonight . I used sun dried tomato basil spread instead of tomatoes since the kids aren't tomato lovers esp if they are visible. They absolutely loved it !! I served it with cooked green beans.

    Absolutely delicious! I actually cut the recipe in half and there was still plenty of food for two! I did add a bit more crushed red pepper and mixed fat free cheddar cheese with colby jack cheese. Served with asparagus. Will definitely be making this again!!
