This is a good base, but I imagine it would be quite bland on its own. I didn't have precooked chicken so I boiled two chicken breasts (next time I'd bake or sautee them). Even with the extra step it was very quick and tasted very good. I minced two cloves of garlic and sauteed it with the red pepper. I then added the mushroom soup and milk. I didn't have enough milk (sad, I know), so I added a couple of tablespoons of sour ceam. I sprinkled in some onion powder, chili powder and a bit of cayenne; I also added some parmesan cheese. All that gave it a really nice flavor without being too overwhelming. I didn't feel like rice so I used half a bag of wide egg noodles. During the last couple of minutes of boiling the noodles I added some frozen peas (maybe 1/2 cup). I tossed it all together in the skillet and then served. All in all, the recipe serves as a great base but I think it needs a little help. I have a feeling my boyfriend will be requesting this again soon! I will make it as described above, except for cooking the chicken differently. Thanks!
