I made this recipe exactly as stated except I only used 4 chicken breasts and a few less carrots. I kept the sauce ingredients the same as I wanted to have lots to put over the noodles. I added some Salt & Pepper to the breasts and a little pepper to the sauce. This was ready for me, at about 15 mins. prior to the 4 hour mark, so I turned it to high for that 15 mins & thickened the sauce with some cornstartch, as it was still pretty soupy. And I personally prefer a thicker sauce. While the chicken turned out great,(it was falling apart), during my first few bites I was trying to figure out what it was missing. I then asked my husband if he liked it and he said, no, not really,it's bland. Although we did not salt & pepper it on our plates, I just sprinkled it with the parsley,(which did look nice.) I was quite surprised with the results,as usually Campbells recipes are pretty tasty.I think they may need to go back to the drawing board for this one, sorry. I gave it a star for being easy, a star for the chicken coming out well, and one more because I think this may be tastier with some tweaking, something to make the sauce a little more savoury maybe.
Although my 3 year old did eat the mildly flavored chicken, my husband and I ate this simply because we don't waste food. If it hadn't been for the dijon mustard, this dish would have had zero flavor. We won't make this again without making some major adjustments.
I found this recipe on Campbells website and was very excited to try it. I am always on the look for good crockpot meals for busy weeknights. I followed this recipe to a tee, except I didnt put as many chicken breast in as the recipe calls for. My husband and I were very disappointed in the taste and have no plans on making this again. It definitely lacks something and needs tweeking.
