  • Very yummy. I messed mine up a little though because I didn't buy enough chicken broth so I used some water and milk but it still tasted great. I can't wait to make it the right way I bet it tastes 10 times better. My BF liked it as well which is amazing he never likes anything I make lol. - 11/25/08
