    I made this vegetarian by subbing veggie chicken strips and veggie broth and cutting out the bacon. It was good but a bit bland (maybe because I didn’t use bacon), so I ended up using a lot more pepper than the recipe specified and adding salt and garlic powder, which weren’t in the recipe.

    Decent. Directions a bit hard to follow. Easily overlooked a few steps and did some out of order. But overall good. Added Cajun sausage for spicy bite. I love garlicky food reheated so it will be twice as good the next day

    This recipe was delicious, easy to make and a keeper. I will make it again. This recipe lends itself to using whatever ingredients you have on hand. I added mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes to it. I added more garlic because in my opinion there is no such thing as too much garlic. I had about a cup of heavy cream left in the fridge so it replaced some of the milk. Had some fresh parsley, in it went. What I like about this recipe is that it can easily be made on a week day as well as a weekend. It is not labor intensive. I put the leftovers in the freezer and I anticipate that it will make a nice meal in the future. One more thing, I feel it needed more pepper. If you think it is too bland, then the next time, jazz it up with whatever spices you want. Making this recipe your own by tweaking it is time well spent because the basic recipe is very good.

    Turned out great! I did add some onion and will add fresh tomatos before serving next time!
    Tasty! a very filling meal. Would suggest adding some spinach or some greens to balance the cheesy, garlic cream.

    delish. very good. i do understand why other people said it was too much garlic, but if you dont like alot of garlic use less but i added some veggies to mine turned out great. you can use any meat or make this as a side dish as well.

    Not a chicken family so I used smoked turkey instead. It was very delicious and I’ll be using the leftovers for lunch at college.

    A simple dish but great and not too fat because it uses milk instead of cream. Use some reduced fat cheese and it brings down your fat intake further more. Leave the sauce to cook on high heat for a little longer for thicker sauce.

    Pretty bland and flavorless. Needs more seasonings

    I turned it into a bake but it was so yum & thick, just a bit bland is all, nothing a bit of nutmeg can’t fix

    It was meh but I might have messed up. It never really met the “creamy” part. I will probably try it again and see if it was user error.

    Very tasty but a bit heavy. The cream sauce took longer than expected. Maybe better as a side dish.
    It turned out amazing!
