Great little one dish meal!!! I only made 2 chicken breast, but kept all the other ingredients the same and after I cooked the pasta I just tossed it with the chicken and sauce. I served with garlic breadsticks and it was a winner for my family!!! Next time I make it I think I will add some steamed broccoli and maybe some bacon bits or something! Delicious! Thanks for sharing!!!
This was super good and super easy. I didn't have any cream cheese in my house, so I used regular thick Sour Cream. I'm sure it would be even better with the sharpness of the cream cheese. I will be making this again, though next time I'm going to make it on the stove top with Perdue Italian seasoned Chicken Breast (they come in the individual marinated packs), and I'll make sure to have the cream cheese this time around.
This has now become one of our weekly meals. It is so easy to make and is great over pasta or rice (have had it both ways). Thank you for sharing this wonder meal. JWenk-Michigan
