This was so good! The first time I made it the sauce didn't quite coat all the noodles so we added some extra butter to them. After making this recipe again, I doubled the sauce and it was more than enough to cover all the noodles. 1.5 servings of the sauce may be more appropriate, but it was better to have extra than not enough.
Yummy, but not over the top amazing.
I wanted to try this recipe as written so I could tailor it to our tastes. Having now tried it as written, I would definitely double the sauce (as said in previous reviews). I will also cut the chicken into strips, as I think it would really add to the dish. My favorite bites were those with chicken and noodles. Egg noodles weren't necessary. Use any noodle on hand. I will also thicken the sauce a little next time.
Overall, a very enjoyable meal, and I will definitely make this again.
This is a simple, flavorful chicken. I used two shortcuts. I skipped the roasted garlic step and just used crushed garlic and I used soup chicken rather than chicken breasts. I would recommend the first shortcut but not the second.
This was great. I put it over brown rice instead of noodles. I would also recommend doubling the sauce. It was the best part.
excellent recipe the whole family loved it
This was one of the best chicken dishes I've had in a while, and I'm giving this the full 5 stars, but only after my adjustments, which were not major. Most importantly, I used half the amount of chicken, so if you're following the recipe as written, double everything but the chicken, or the sauce will not be sufficient. I cut the raw chicken into bite sized pieces before tossing in flour, and deep fried it until light brown. Everything else I did the same, except I fried the chives in the sauce for a few minutes at the end. This was devoured!
I just made this for the second time, using the 4 person recipe. It turned out MUCH better using the original quantities than scaling down. If you're cooking for two, just make fewer noodles and only cook 2 chicken breasts. I wish I had taken a picture before we ate because it was really pretty this time, too. Just make sure to plan ahead for the 30 minutes to roast the garlic! Otherwise, the recipe doesn't take long to make at all.
This was incredible. The key to this recipe is roasting the garlic. You will not achieve the appropriate flavor without that step.
