    Thanks for the recipe. I had a left over chicken and some broccoli that was getting old. Very good recipe and my family loved it, thanks!  -  31 May 2013


    I sauted minced garlic, chopped onion, and chopped chicken breast in a pan. I boiled frozen veggies separately. I made sauce as stated and then added chicken, pasta, and veggies at the last minute. I put in a little more soup and milk than called for and it turned out great. I highly recommend this dish.  -  22 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is good but it's not one I would serve with company. When cooking the soup with the carrots and broccoli, it took too long and I wonder if that is why the sauce was too thick. Once mixed with the pasta, it just didn't seem like there was enough or that something needed to be added (like double the sauce?). I will still try again, and despite these minor flaws, it was good.  -  09 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
