Good

"I loved this recipe, though I ended up with a pretty different outcome! We couldn't find all the right ingredients and substituted a few hot green peppers (I think I used 2) for the pimento and used dried basil instead of fresh basil (same amount, though). It was still absolutely fantastic if you like spicy food (which I love). The sauce was still delicious and I can imagine how good it would've been w/ the right peppers. I served it with some penne and olive oil with sauted asparagus and garlic on the side. I'll definitely be cooking this one again!"

"If you like it, you might also try this  A lovely noodle dish! Rich, creamy, and addictive. The slight spiciness gives it some extra flair. This simple dish is made for added ease in a crockpot! " Firebyrd Firebyrd

"If you like it, you might also try this  If you and yours like Alfredo Sauce as much as I do, this is the recipe to try! Takes mere minutes to assemble and make; you will love the crispy seasoned chicken in this cheesy, creamy dish!" Firebyrd Firebyrd

"If you like it, you might also try this  This tastes like something you'd order at a high-end restaurant, only you can make it at home in under 30 minutes! Slightly spicy and wonderfully rich & filling, this will become a fast favorite!" Firebyrd Firebyrd

"I recommend pairing it (i.e., SIMULTANEOUSLY) with this recipe  Think of a great loaded baked potato flavor with the extra zing of ranch dressing and then roasted potatoes that are slightly crispy as opposed to fluffy and baked. These potatoes make a great side dish with most anything, and just perfect for a barbeque or pot luck dinner. Try it; your family and friends will thank you!" Firebyrd Firebyrd

"If you like it, you might also try this  I had a rich pasta dish similar to this at a restaurant, Bacon, alfredo and pasta--pretty much a match made in heaven. This is the perfect meal for a busy weeknight! It can be thrown together in a matter of minutes and is a great way to use leftover chicken (or even a rotisserie chicken); just skip the first step. If you know that you will have a busy day, you can prep this meal in the morning and throw it in the oven right before you are ready to eat!" Firebyrd Firebyrd

Sauce was very good!
danfisheraliciahinchliffe 2 weeks ago
I found that the pimentos just disappeared in the sauce, so I replaced them with a few tomatoes. I also added a couple cloves of garlic. After cooking the chicken, I added a couple of tablespoons of flour to make a roux so the sauce would be thicker. This is perfect on Basmati rice. It can also be made without breading the chicken, cutting it into bite-sized pieces and just putting the sauce on rice. I have added mushrooms to the sauce as well with success.

instead of pimentos I did diced tomatoes, as I am not a fan of pimentos. It was delicious.

Wow was this flavorful! Used milk with a little corn starch instead of cream and used garlic flavored breadcrumbs and it tasted great!

The consistency was perfect and it came out exactly like the picture looked, but the frying time on the chicken is too short. My chicken was still bloody in the middle. I will cook again but will shoot for a longer frying time next time.

Accidentally used whole can of chicken broth but increased cream and thickened with cornstarch. Poured sauce on chicken and put in oven for 15 min. Served with red potatoes & green beans. Loved the color. Next time I will add cheese on top

Tried this recipe the other night for my fianc?, it came out exactly as the pictures. I loved how quick and tasty it was. All done in under about 30 minutes. The only thing I was wow about was that I cooked the whole chicken breast and also I dont think I fancied the crumbing before and then toped with sauce. I think next time ill cut chicken up with no crumbing. Also had penne pasta underneath and really liked that. It was like a italian pasta on its own!

Big hit in my house! My son hates chicken but after this dish he requested this to be on our list of favorites! That is a BIG thing! I will definitely make this again.
