    I stumbled onto this recipe on accident when I was looking for a way to use up some half and half. By the third bite, my husband rated it A+! When I tell him it is on the menu he claps his hands! We use 4 chicken breasts instead of the tenderloins. It ends up having chicken in every bite. It is every bit as good the next day too.  -  20 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This really wasn't bad. It was good comfort food, but we also found it a little bland. I also think that a pasta dish doesn't need this much flour in the sauce, it was a little too much and the cheeses would have thickened it well enough. I recommend using more spices like garlic and perhaps a little mustard too, to make it more flavourful.  -  01 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
