    Lainey6605's Note:

    Got this from a magazine clipping. My family enjoyed it. It has just the right amount of spice. Velveeta cheese is recommended for creaminess.

      This was a nice, light dish I served along with salad and rolls. I used the Velveeta cheese as specified and it was perfect. I also found this recipe in a magazine clipping with one difference of adding one 16 ounce package of frozen broccoli, cauliflower and carrot blend. I suppose the recipe had been recently updated by Velveeta. I did also add a few seasonings to the chicken just as a personal preference because I thought it might be a little on the bland side. But it turned out well and was a nice quick, easy dinner. Thanks for posting.

      Very good quick, weeknight meal. Goes together in a flash! I think you need to use Velveeta in this recipe if you want the get the creaminess required for this dish. Same as Queen Puff, I got this from a magazine clipping that asked for frozen broccoli, cauliflower and carrots. While you could make it either way, we enjoyed it with the combination of vegetables. I lightly seasoned the chicken while cooking, as well. Thank you for sharing here - Will make again!

      This was easy to make, but I had hoped for a cheesier sauce. I did use a combination of swiss cheese and cheddar instead of velveeta, but for whatever reason I could not tell that there was any cheese in it. The recipe was ok, plates were cleaned, but it was just not what I had imagined. Thanks for posting.
