"Being on a diet, the words creamy and pasta usually are reserved for only my cheat days. I wanted to make something and not feel guilty about eating it, so I whipped this up in the kitchen. It's delicious and very adaptable; change it up however you like! Has a nice little bite with the red pepper flakes added. This would also be fantastic with onion added."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This is a very easy and quick recipe and my family loved it. However, I didn't have cream of mushroom soup, so I used cream of chicken and it turned out great. Also, I suggest that you add a little bit of cayenne pepper and seasoning salt because it is pretty bland without it. Served over rice and steamed broccoli. Delicious! Will definitely make this again.
Pretty good basis for the meal. Agree with the others, it was a little bland. If you like spicy, as I do, I added Cajun seasoning and a sprinkle of an Italian blend cheese! Yum!
Very Good! I didn't have the garlic, or onion on hand but used garlic salt and onion powder along with Italian seasoning to season the chicken. Will try next time with the "real" garlic and add some onion. Turned out great.
It was a bit bland like the other reviews said. I tried to add a bit of white wine to the chicken while it was cooking. I then added curry and mixed frozen veggies, and it turned out pretty tasty! All in all, after a bit of tweaking it was pretty good for how simple and easy it was.
5 stars on the dish i made which a variation of this one. I cooked brown rice in my rice cooker as i cooked the rest of this. sauteed garlic, onions and mushrooms in olive oil, then added chicken. After chicken cooked I added the cream of mush soup, water, salt, pepper and curry powder. served it over brown rice and baked brussel sprouts on the side. So yummy!!!
It's very good, just a tip: DO NOT ADD THE PEPPER. It's a lot more than you think and my whole dish was flecked with pepper and it's taste. Too much! Should of thought twice. Otherwise the rest of the meal is superb! Would definately make it again, just no pepper!
I was looking for a healthy recipe to make, and with all the 4 star ratings this received, I was sure that this would be a hit. I took the advice of many users and added more seasonings, but it still tasted like something was missing. It's edible, but very bland. The crushed red pepper makes it bland and spicy. I won't be making this again.
I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe. As is, I think it would be a little bland. I added a tsp of minced garlic, a tsp of crushed red pepper and red curry paste along with the recommended curry powder. Really added nice flavor with a thai spin. I also added onion, red pepper and frozen broccoli. It was a really solid meal.
