Rich creamy comfort food. It's even good without the amaretto. The amaretto gives it that something special tho so don't leave it out if you have some available.

I was very excited about this recipe since I am a huge fan of amaretto. However, I was very disappointed with the results. There was a hint of amaretto, otherwise the chicken and noodles were virtually flavorless. I am rather inexperienced when it comes to cooking, so I don't know what spices I could add to bring out the flavors. If anyone has suggestions, I am very open.
