A little salty. Could use some form of unsalted margarine to lessen the saltiness. I prepared and put on a chicken pasta. My very picky husband liked it and he normally does not eat chicken unless it's fried with a batter on it. Next time I think I will melt cheese on top - like Provolone or Monterrey Jack.

I like it but I was the only one that seemed to. Everyone else complained it was too salty and when I tried making it with less bouilion it had no taste.

Good flavor. Couldn't be simpler. Chicken Soup base granules aren't as salty as boullion cubes and worked great. Will make it again. Thanks.

I cut the chicken into strips and served it with rice and got rave reviews from my husband and all his friends. It's probably the easiest meal I've ever made.

Easy and so Good! I clarified some butter to cook the chicken in and then in the last few minutes of cooking added some unsalted butter and spooned it over the chicken. Based on the other reviews I backed off the bouillon by 50% to reduce the salty taste. Good Eats!

This was really good and simple. My husband is a really picky eater, and he ate it all. Any recipe that can do that is a five-star recipe. I recommend this for picky eaters.

This was really good! My a big chicken fan, and I get tired of the same old chicken every day. I tried this recipe and it was great. This one is a Keeper!! I even used "I can't believe it's not butter" instead of the margarine, due to my diet. And it was really good. I can't imagine how it tastes following the recipe!

My kids loved this chicken! We served it over pasta. For once I didn't have any leftovers!
