Top Review by Sydney Mike

I don't usually make the noodles that I use in recipes like this, but am finding that I enjoy doing just that, & this recipe was no exception ~ A bit more work, but well worth the effort, even if I did use just half of the chicken & cut the recipe in half as well! Absolutely great tasting chicken dish & one I'd like to make for company another time! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block tag]
