    It was okay but just wasn’t for me. I added 1/2 teaspoon of pepper because it was too salty for me but overall I didn’t find it super flavorful.

    Needed a little bit more seasoning but otherwise it was delicious and my family loved it.

    My son said “please never make this again.” It has an odd flavor...maybe from the cheese? Not my favorite.

    This was really good I doubled the recipe but I didn’t double the cheese. I find Asiago to be be very strong and a little goes a long way I was very happy with the results. I think if I would have put the two full cups it would have been too strong. The only thing I would change is I would have added more spices to the chicken. The paprika and salt weren’t flavorful enough in my opinion. Other than that I thought it was great! I will definitely make it again.

    If i make again, I would not use the oil from the sun-dried tomatoes as well as adding way more spices to it. I had already added Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and pepper but it didnt seem to help much.

    This does not really have much flavor and the sauce dosen't emulsify and get creamy the way it should if you add it into the pan with all the oils from the sundried tomatoes and chicken. Not the best.

    My husband & I loved it. We will probably use a little more seasoning next time!

    Very flavorful and easy to make. Next time I will add more spinach and make a little more sauce. My family loved it so I will definitely be making this again.

    It turned out quite tasty. I used Parmesan instead of asiago

    Turned out well! Instead of half and half, I did 1 cup almond milk and 1/8 cup of butter and it was delicious. I also put a lot less cheese than the recipe called for. I like this recipe because it allows for a lot of customization.

    Not loved by the family. The sundried tomato’s gave it a sour taste. We needed to add a lot of salt.

    Solid recipe, but would of probably tasted better if I stuck with the ingredients (I used regular diced tomatoes and parmesan). It was a bit cheesy for my taste, so I used a bit of lemon juice to tone it down. 👌

    Turned out delicious! Before cooking my chicken, I seasoned it with Italian seasoning, garlic salt and red pepper. I also used heavy whipping cream instead of 1/2 & 1/2 and I used more than suggested for added sauce.

    I will make this again. A variety of flavors, very good.

    It was pretty good, I modified the recipe by adding onion, basil, and some cayenne pepper and Cajun seasoning I had at home. Overall, I liked the recipe, would do it again

    Tasty! Didn’t have Asiago cheese so just used your every day edams cheese. Added some mushrooms and capsicum as well. Can see this as a good recipe I can change and add things as I feel.

    It was good, I look forward to doctoring it up a bunch in the future.

    Excellent. I have made this several times and I keep loving it. I have added mushrooms sometimes.

    Really good! Easy to make. With a lot of flavor. Asiago is a very strong smelling cheese so at while cooking it was overwhelming, I thought I wouldn’t like this dish. But I really enjoyed it. Just added more sundried tomatoes and the red pepper flakes gave it a lot flavor. Definitely recommend. Will be cooking this again 😋

    So good! I used a low carb penne and it was perfect. Never would have noticed. My husband said he would order this at a restaurant! Winning! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 and super easy to make too. I asked the butcher to chop my chicken when I got it and that really helped

    Want to remake with some more cheese and paprika. Decent the first time but slightly bland and needed more sauce.
    So good and so easy! I served mine with broccoli. I will be making this again.
