Very Bland

I found this receipe very bland, it also took a very long time for the sauce to thicken, over 30 minutes, on med heat using my new pans. My husband would not eat this again and he would eat anything. It might work if it had more seasonings.

Another Spectacular Recipe

This is so delicious. I added a half cup of frozen peas when I had added the chicken and even added more great taste to it that it already had. All the recipes that I have tried from Very Best Baking .com have been spectacular. Thanks Again Nestle.
