      Sorry, I am going to be odd man out! For this dish to be creamy, it needed at least 1 cup of whipping cream. I added some pepper and hot sauce to perk it up a bit....but that wasn't enough! I probably won't come back to this one!!

      Great recipe! I was feeding a small army so I used 4 huge chicken breasts, a box and a half of fettuccine and pretty much double everything else. Added sea salt and pepper and a can of drained peas and the dinner table had little conversation because the meal was being gobbled down by all! Even my 4 and 6 yr old boys didn't say a word about the peas that I slipped in let alone try to pick them out! Huge score!! I'm going to put this recipe in the regular rotation and Next time precook the chicken and maybe even bacon to save time. Thank you!
