    I loved your comment, it made feel better about my own kids because it seems like at least one of them won't like each thing we make, although half the time it is a different one each time we make it. Like this recipe the first three times my middle one loved it but last time wouldn't touch it...

  • Almost everyone in my family loved this and finished off the batch I made. All but my picky 6 y/o went for 2nds. I used left over roasted chicken that I had. I increased the broccoli & chicken and used Butoni Light Alfredo sauce (2 -10oz tubs)which provided tons of sauce. WIll definitely make again - 9/23/11

  • I make this all the time but I use spiral noodles and already cooked frozen Tyson's chicken fajita strips and just heat them in a pan with frozen broccoli then add the sauce and add it all to the noodles. My family loves this. - 6/23/11
