My husband really liked this, but I thought it was really bland and visually unappealing.
Changes I made: I added about 1.5 cups of frozen broccoli. For the "enough water to cover", which I didn't understand at ALL as an instruction, I used 2 soup cans of bouillon. I agree with others that 30 minutes is not long enough for the dough to cook -- I cooked mine about 75 min and it probably could've used another 10 minutes. I also cut the breasts up into matchbox-sized chunks since that's how I remember this dish from childhood.
When I went to add the dough, the dish was very brothy. I wasn't sure what it was supposed to look like at this stage of cooking but it looked like chicken soup so I ladled out about 3 ladles' worth of the liquid.
In the end I was pleased with the consistency and the broccoli came out nice. The chicken was dry and bland (perhaps dry because I cut it up into smaller pieces so it cooked faster?). Really this dish just needs something to kick it up a notch, pardon the expression.
