    Fantastic! This is a very yummy, creamy, filling dish. And I love how quick and easy it is. I used a 5 oz. can of evaporated milk, and the sauce was very thick after I added the parmesan, so I thinned it out some by adding skim milk, which worked fine. I also added 1 cloved of garlic and steamed broccoli to it. Thanks for sharing!

    This is a very tasty base recipe, however it would be very helpful if you would include your actual measurements for the milk and the dressing.<br/><br/>I used approx 300g milk which seemed to be enough, but had no idea how much dressing to use and ended up playing it by smell. Chucked in a drizzle olive oil and balsamic, teaspoon each of dried basil, thyme and oregano and 2 teaspoons garlic. Also included 1/4 head each of broccoli and cauliflower for some veggies, steamed them before stirring through sauce. Omitted Parmesan from the sauce and instead grated on, to serve since I'm trying to be slightly healthier. Would love to see a revised recipe, but in the mean time, thanks for a great starting base for a lovely meal.

    Wonderful! Very rich and creamy and full of flavor. Tastes like a dish you could expect to find on the menu at Olive Garden or Johnny Carino's! I would easily prepare this for company and expect many compliments! Goes GREAT with fresh steamed veggies, french bread and a nice glass of wine! So simple to make too! My only complaint is that the recipe did not specify what size can of evaporated milk to use. I opened up a 12 oz. can and used 1/2 of that. So I am certain a 5oz. can is what the recipe intends. I also used 1# of chicken and 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice. A must try recipe!!

    For a quick dinner, this is perfect. Garlic bread and salad like suggested, works!


My way of rating recipes <br>1 Star - Did not like it, and possibly not edible, will not be making again, unless I specify the chance. <br>2 Star - It was ok, but I will probly not make again, unless I specify the chance. <br>3 Star - This was good, not bad, but not great, and will probly be made again when I have nothing else to make. <br>4 Star - This was great, and will be made again. <br>5 Star - AMAZING dish. Will most definitely be made again. <br> <br> <br> <br><a href=http://www.amazingcounters.com><img border=0 src=http://c7.amazingcounters.com/counter.php?i=1512901&c=4539016 alt=Free Web Counters></a><a href=http://www.flowerdeliverydeals.com>Cheap Flowers</a>
