This was really good. I followed the recipe, for the most part. I didn't have brown rice so I used instant white rice instead and added about 12oz of spinach, instead of 10 oz. This recipe was quick and easy to make on a week-night. It was creamy and thick. I wished that I would have added a bit more salad dressing and chicken broth upfront, but overall I'm pleased with this recipe. I'll certainly make it again.

This was amazing!! I cheated because I was starving after work. I used a handful of the precooked chicken breast strips, didn't have the same dressing so just used a couple squirts of the O&V that I had & a touch of minced garlic. I added a small can of mushrooms at this point WITH most of the juice(didn't have broth)and a cup of minute brown rice (after microwaving). I only used a couple spoonfuls of cream cheese though. Enough to trick myself into thinking it was alfredo, but less calories. (half fat) It totally worked!!! I seriously want to like the pan while it's still hot!

This looked like a good starter recipe--- needed some tweaking. I added some mushrooms, a good helping of Worcestershire sauce and used zesty Italian dressing instead. Very tasty... Will make this one again!

This was a very good meal - tasted yummy, as is and my family (husband and teenage daughter) really enjoyed it. However, I'm only giving it 4 stars because it's not quite perfect. Next time, I'll add more Italian dressing and/or chicken broth to make it a little more moist. I'd also like to try it with a little onion and some mushrooms - this is the perfect recipe for more veggies. I definitely recommend it, and it's easy to tweak to your personal tastes.
