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!

Agreed bit dry. Next time I will use more cream. I added another 1/4 cup and still dry. I also added frozen peas and let them cook before mixing everything together. I used less chicken too, two cups seemed a bit much for my family. Great recipe to start off with. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Marie!!!I loved your recipe it was so rich and creamy I modified your recipe by substituting the heavy whipping cream for low fat evaporated milk and adding bits of spinach and potatoes and using bacon for a healthier dish I added quite a bit of salt and voila!!!!

I made this dish tonight, and it was really good--with just a few variations. I used chopped green onion instead of regular onion, and used a cup of half-and-half and a cup of milk as someone suggested. I also seasoned it quite a bit, as it came out a wee bit bland. I used Italian Blend Ms. Dash, Lawry's, chicken broth (which I let simmer) and right at the end, I added just a tablespoon or so of Au Jus flavored Better Than Buillion and mixed that in. It was great! My family really enjoyed it and I know this dish will become a regular.

Very good and versitile. Made this many times. Once with ham. Once with a grated cheddar. Once adding broccoli and pre-cooked bacon. Great flavor profile and perfect way to use up leftover rotisserie chicken. yummy!

I thought this was really good! However, I definitely needed to add more liquid for the sauce. I used 1/2 cup half and half and 1/2 cup 1% milk. I honestly could have even added a little more milk. I only used 4 slices of bacon. It probably would have been better would all 8, but I was just trying to cut out a little of the fat and calories. It was find with only 4 slices. I also used 2 cloves of garlic because we love garlic! Thanks! I will definitely be making this again!
