    this was phenomenal!! I cooked 1/2 box of pasta and mixed in some chili powder. I added the pasta, veggies, evaporated milk and chili powder to the pan with chicken to pick up the flavors. AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME My new favorite! - 1/16/10

  • Terrible, but not the fault of the recipe person. I blame Tyson, the flavoring was terrible and I couldn't be in my house for hours after due to the terrible smell! I think doing this from scratch with chicken would work, but not with the ready strips! - 2/12/13
