We liked this a lot. But, I had to add quite a bit more milk than called for (maybe an additional 1/2 cup?) because it was so thick and gooey. Will make again. Served over rice instead of noodles -- YUM! Left out the bacon (didn't have any), and browned the chicken in olive oil instead.

This was so good! My whole family loved it, even my picky eater. The only things I did different were to use Turkey bacon and 1 can of Fat Free evaporated milk and the rest Fat Free Milk. It turned out great! Next time I'm adding mushrooms and maybe artichoke hearts! Yum!
